Chaktomuk Short Film Festival Finalists
The Chaktomuk Short Film Festival (CSFF) is the first of its kind in Cambodia. Organized by the film collective Kon Khmer Koun Khmer, and running annually for the last three years, the festival promotes talented filmmakers from Cambodia and across Southeast Asia. CSFF was launched in 2012 as an online short film competition, and was only for local Cambodian filmmakers. It was received with great interest and has since grown into an important event for regional filmmakers working in short format.
Kon Khmer Koun Khmer also puts on an annual workshop for local filmmakers called FilmCampKh. Together, these events are creating an encouraging environment for young people to learn new skills and expand their project concepts. After just three years, these two projects are gaining great interest in the region. This emerging festival is definitely one to keep an eye on.
As part of our Spotlight on Cambodia, LPFF will showcase the finalists from the 2015 Chaktomuk Short Film Festival, which took place in November.
All films are in Khmer with English subtitles. The full collection will be screened every day at 11am.
