BANGKOK FILM FESTIVAL = LITTLE MATCH GIRL

Bangkok Film Festival Nobody loves the Bangkok Film Festival, it seems, not even Thai exhibitors. After firing the Americans who'd managed to turn the festival into an international freebie bag it looked like things could turn around as actual Thai people were put in positions where they could program the fest and they decided to do things like have Thai subtitles on prints so actual Thai audiences could attend. But then "because of financial considerations" the Paragon Cineplex, which was to play host to the festival, apparently balked at putting in the fest in late January 2007 (about a month away!) when parts one and two of KING NARESUAN would be released.

The festival has now been moved to July 2007.

(Of course, the Americans aren't all to blame. Wisekwai wisely links to a great article on the whole mess courtesy of Kong Rithdee.)

I am supporting Bangkok film or any kind of Thai Arts at all.
