See the map and other info @ http://www.hof-art.net BANGKOK INDIEFEST is a new independent movie festival produced by both Thai and foreign filmmakers and movie lovers. Our goal is to create a fun and inclusive platform for emerging international and local films and filmmakers here in Bangkok. Since our call for entries last August, hundreds of movies have poured in from around the world, sent by international and Thai filmmakers who are eager to screen their work here. BANGKOK INDIEFEST showcases: International and local shorts, documentaries, dramatic features, animation, ‘Very Short Movies’ (under 10 min.), an open screen film jam, and our very special ‘Area 51’ showcase of strange, underground, and ultra-alternative movies. Although the lineup is still being finalized (to be announced on or before July 1st), many overseas filmmakers are excited to attend the festival, even despite the intense international media coverage of the recent protests. Despite the unfortunate destruction of several local venues due to arson, and the cancellation of many other Bangkok events due to a difficult sponsorship environment following the protests (* for example, we have extremely limited external funding)...
...BANGKOK IS ONCE AGAIN SAFE for local and international guests!
BANGKOK INDIEFEST forges ahead to help celebrate the art of independent film in the creative hub of Southeast Asia!
