As part of the ongoing strong drive to promote tourism as well as cultural artistry, Cambodia is set to host its first ever International Film Festival in 2010.


The much awaited event will be financially sponsored by UNESCO and is organised by the Cambodia Film Commission, FX Entertainment, Associated Filmmakers of Cambodia and Kmy Films jointly.


The festival will feature at least 30 Cambodian films as well as a large number of films from around 10 countries across Asia and Europe. These films will be in the categories of documentaries, international independent films, youth related films, Khmer films both modern and classic, as well as exemplary music videos and TV dramas.


The festival will take place over a period of three days and will comprise of an opening ceremony, outdoor screenings, theatre screenings, a showcase for the cinema industry, workshops, seminars and an award ceremony.


The International Film Festival will provide a forum for theatre industrialists to work together and learn from one another and it is hoped that the Cambodian film industry would gain much insight and knowledge through this venture. Further, the Cambodian government hopes that the festival will boost tourism and will promote Cambodia not only as a destination spot but also as a film shooting venue.


The Government of Cambodia together with the UNESCO is also keen to nurture and foster cultural and artistic needs and thereby develop the minds and lives of many in the surrounding region.


The festival will not only feature lavish galas – by invitation only – but also events which will be open to the public. Visitors to Phnom Penh during this time will be in for a treat. If such visitors seek a five star hotel Phnom Penh from which to base themselves, then the Raffles Hotel Le Royal with its classical yet modern outlook is a wonderful luxury hotel Cambodia.
