Festival glad tidings

Two Shadows poster
Just heard that Two Shadows, a film by director Greg Cahill and starring Sophia Pel, will be shown, three times, at the upcoming 2012 Cambodia International Film Festival, that runs for six days from 7 December, in various locations around the city. Greg and Sophea were together for Cahill’s 2006 short film The Golden Voice, where Sophea portrayed legendary Cambodian songstress Ros Sereysothea. The film created a sensation at over a dozen international film festivals, garnering several first-place awards and Greg is currently developing it into a full-length feature film. The screenings of Two Shadows, 94 minutes in length, at CIFF will be at the French Institute (4.30pm on Saturday 8th), Sorya Mall Cineplex (6.30pm on Tuesday 11th) and the CJCC (6pm on Wednesday 12th). The festival will also see a number of other feature films shot in Cambodia, such as Comfortably Lost, I Have Loved, Bangkok Jam, The Final Sleep and If God Will Send His Angels, together with films from around the world and older films that will focus on Norodom Sihanouk and other Khmer filmmakers. Short films like Paulina by Caylee So, which won awards, will also get an airing, as will a slew of documentaries. For the full CIFF program, click here.
