I had spent around two hours joining the closing ceremony of the 1st Cambodia International Film Festival (CIFF) at Chaktomuk Theatre and I was lucky to bring my own camera with me tonight to shoot some photos for my blog visitors. SO don’t forget to scroll your mouse pointer down to see those photos including one short video clip.
At the spot, there was a presence of HE Him Chhey Em, Minister of Culture and Fine Arts, government officials, famous film directors, actors, celebrities, and hundreds of Cambodian and foreign audiences.
After the end of closing ceremony, there was also a concert outside the hall by The Cambodian Space Project (below, you can watch a short video clip I took tonight).
This year is marked the 1st annual Cambodia International Film Festival, which was opened Wednesday, 20 October, at Chaktomuk Theatre and had been closed just a few hours ago.
During the festival, more than 100 international and Khmer productions were screened at six venues throughout Phnom Penh, such as Lux Cinema, Chenla Theatre, Bophana Center and Le Cinema at Centre Culturel Français (CCF); public outdoor screenings are at Golden Sorya Market and Diamond Island.
