22/02/2010 - Phuket Film Festival to be held in June

The second Phuket film festival will take place from 4th to 13th June this year and organizers are hoping it will be bigger and better than the debut festival which took place in 2007.

The seven day event is an opportunity for film makers to showcase their films and in 2007 a total of forty films were screened from fifteen different countries and attracted a crowd of over 3,600.

The director of the Phuket film festival, Scott Rosenberg likened the festival to the early days of Cannes, saying, “The Cannes International Film Festival historically had a rocky three to four-year start and while we don’t want to emulate them, we sure do want to grow up to be like them,”

Film-makers are invited to submit 'screeners' of features, documentaries, short films and animations for possible screening at the event.  The deadline for entries is 30th April and a $30 fee is payable for each submission.
