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.

Cambodia’s ocean film festival highlights marine conservation
7 December 2018
Phnom penh hosted Cambodia’s first ocean themed film festival this week, with Siem Reap the next destination for the travelling film showcase.

The 2018 Siem Reap Ocean in Motion Film Festival, which opened on December 4 and 5 with screenings at Meta House in Phnom Penh, will now travel to Siem Reap to showcase a series of short and medium length films celebrating the ocean and championing wildlife conservation.

“The purpose of the event is to bring inspiration and further awareness about ocean protection through beautiful short films which are exciting, intriguing, entertaining, emotional and educational – giving something for everyone to get excited about in one way or another.

“A lot of people might not be able to get to the ocean, so this is a way for us to bring the ocean to them, and they don’t even have to get wet,” said Douglas Woodring, founder of Ocean Recovery Alliance, the organisation behind the event.

Ocean Recovery Alliance is a non-profit organisation based in Hong Kong and California concerned with raising awareness and creating solutions for improving the health of our oceans. The Ocean in Motion Film Festival was first held in Hong Kong in 2012, but this is the first time it will be hosted in Cambodia. It will then head to Thailand for screenings in Phuket and Bangkok between December 12-15.

The Ocean in Motion Film Festival will be held at the Bambu Stage and The Village Cafe in Siem Reap between December 7-8, with film discussions, Q&As and an after-party all scheduled.
