CIFF - ones to watch out for

A few interesting films to watch out for at the Cambodia Film Festival that kicks-off tomorrow. Obviously The Last Reel is the one to watch, with screenings on 5th (invitation-only), 9th and 10th (both open to the public). Sure to be standing room only. For Cambodian Golden Age music lovers, Don't Think I've Forgotten will screen at Chaktomuk Theatre on Sunday 7th at 6pm and at 8.30pm the same night, there will be a special concert to celebrate the event at The Mansion. An edgy road movie, Ruin, a film that Hanuman's Kulikar Sotho had a hand in as producer, will screen on 9th at 9pm at the French Institute. The Gate, the story of Francois Bizot's incarceration with Comrade Duch, will screen on 7th and 9th. Its 80 films from 26 countries for the festival including focus on Korean cinema, and a few others to look out for include documentaries such as The Stolen Warriors, the story behind stolen Khmer treasures, Angkor's Children, Selapak, Duch - Master of The Forges of Hell and Le Grand Tour. Get to some of the screenings and support the festival. There are nine venues with the Major Cineplax at AEON and Legend at TK Avenue hosting The Last Reel showings, but the French Institute cinema and Bophana Center are by far the busiest of the locations with the bulk of the screenings between them.

How could such a celebrated film as "The Last Reel" only be shown to the public two times (at very inaccessible times)?? Complete fail for the CIFF this past year. And will this movie ever be shown in Cambodia again?

The Last Reel was shown 3 times, only twice to general public at the Cambodia Film Festival. Ideally we would've had better screening times, but it was a busy festival in Phnom Penh, with lots of films to fit in. Sorry you didn't see it.
It is currently being shown at film festivals around the globe (Finland and UK this month, Italy and USA next month) and is likely to be on general release in Cambodian cinemas in August (fingers crossed). I'll keep everyone informed.
