TEN high school filmmakers were chosen as Cambodian youth ambassadors to compete in the Asia International Children’s Film Contest in Japan this December.
Pheoung Sakona, secretary of state from the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, said the films could help Asian neighbours understand more about Cambodian society and culture.
Their three-minute movies were chosen from among entries by 60 secondary school students in Phnom Penh and Kandal province, with the screening to determine the finalists held at the Cambodia Japanese Cooperation Centre at the weekend.
One winner, 16-year-old Chum Buchda from Hun Sen Serey Pheap High School in Kandal province, said her entry was the first film she had ever made.
