Cambodia International Film Festival 2017

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

Rithy Panh’s Exile to headline Cambodia's international film fest

The organizers of the Cambodia International Film Festival have unveiled the preliminary schedule for the seventh edition of the event, to be held from March 4-9 in venues around the capital. Organisers expect the festival to match and possibly surpass in size last year’s event, which featured 140 films. Among the highlights of confirmed feature-length movies will be the local premiere of Exile by Cambodian filmmaker Rithy Panh, which debuted last year at the Cannes Festival.

Another Cannes selection, Davy Chou’s Diamond Island, will be showcased. Rounding out the Cambodian selections will be Jimmy Henderson’s Jailbreak, a Khmer action-comedy currently in theatres, Sok Visal’s Poppy Goes to Hollywood, Huy Valeng’s Vikalcharet and the premiere of Mind Cage by Amit Dubey.

The festival will be held from March 4-9 at a selection of venues throughout Phnom Penh, including Bophana Center, the French Institute, Legend Cinemas, Major Cineplex and Platinum Cineplex. Once released, the schedule of films and locations will be available at http://www.cambodia-iff.com.

Good news.

Jailbreak to make its debut on Netflix

Jailbreak, the genre-busting Cambodian film that opened last year to critical acclaim both at home and abroad has earned another honour: Come Wednesday, the film will be making its Netflix debut.

Jailbreak is the first Cambodian film to be acquired by the streaming giant, after it produced Angelina Jolie’s locally filmed First They Killed My Father last year.

The road to the platform was a long one, said French-Cambodian producer Loy Te of Kongchak Productions. The team first approached Netflix a year ago at the Cannes Film Festival, and the resulting negotiations lasted for months.

“I’m really excited,” said Loy. “Coming from where the whole project started, I didn’t think we’d ever reach this milestone.”
