Angkor Wat Film Festival

February 24, 2014 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , ,

For the third time this year, the Angkor Wat Film Festival screens both Cambodian and international films in Siem Reap. Venue is it the luxurious Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra Golf & Spa Resort. Attending the festival will be free of charge.

The festival organisation wants to promote the art of film to a broad audience. Not only to the international public, but also to Cambodians so they can learn about their own, but also other cultures. Besides a scala on screenings between 11am and 11pm from Friday – Sunday, also panels and talks are hosted. On Sunday, Dr. Gary Greenberg from Hawaii’s Institute of Astronomy will have a talk and on Friday for example, a 3D movie on a romance in the Cirque du Soleil will be showed to the public.

The mission of the Film Festival is to showcase and celebrate films and documentaries about the preservation of culture and environment. American actor Robert Redford will also attend the festival.
