KON Magazine cover

KON (in Khmer: The Cinema of Cambodia) Magazine was made by Department of Media and Communication‘s student batch 8 with initiation from Dr. Tilman Baumgärtel. The magazine is the final project of sophomore students in 2010. It has 28 pages consisting a wide range of news about cinema of Cambodia.

Students talked to films producers, actors, and people both in the golden age as well as today.

Now this magazine is completely done and published for the public who are interested to know about the history and situation of cinema in Cambodia.

We will launch our magazine at Meta House on the October 15, 2010. At that day, we will screen 9 video clip made in the past to audience. There will be filmmakers and actors in the past joining the event.

The admission is free, so don’t forget to join us to get a free KON Magazine.

Dara Saoyuth

Coming from a simple family in Kampot province of Cambodia, I’ve spent most part of my teenage years in learning and working. Through those experiences, I’ve built myself up from the ground and finally, become an entrepreneur running a media production company with my co-founder.

I believe that no matter situation or position we are in, we can be great at what we are doing and get what we want when we put our heart and soul into that.
