Thai cinema and the Thai film industry to shine during Thai Night 2012
Cannes' Thai Night 2012 Friday May 18th, 2012 at 6:00pm
Grand Salon, Intercontinental Carlton Cannes
Presided by Her Royal Highness Princess Ubolratana Rajakanya Sirivadhana Barnavadi, Thai Night 2012 will be the occasion to celebrate another banner year for Thai cinema.
Palme d'Or winner Apichatpong Weerasethakul is back in the official selection with "Mekong Hotel". Also present in Cannes this year is an eclectic new wave of Thai filmmakers who will be showcasing their work at the International Film Market.
Meanwhile, Thailand is cementing its position as one of the most popular filming destinations in Asia. Over the past 15 months, a record 798 foreign productions were filmed in Thailand, including feature films such as Luc Besson's "The Lady" and Nicolas Winding Refn's "Only God Forgives" starring Ryan Gosling.
The country's beautiful sceneries and low production costs are not the only reasons for Thailand's growing appeal as a filming location. Thailand now offers among the most skilled and experienced film personnel and technical services available in Asia, from production crews to post-production services, animation and visual effects.
Taking note of the potential of Thailand's film sector, the Royal Thai Government has recently announced new incentives for foreign productions, including full income tax exemption for foreign actors.
All this and more will be at the centre of Thai Night 2012 - Where Films Come Alive, a reception organized by the Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP), Thai Ministry Of Commerce.
Attended by Senior Thai Government officials, business leaders and members of the film and entertainment industry, the reception will offer international film professionals and the media an opportunity to meet and greet the Thai filmmakers and talent present in Cannes and forge new ties with the Thai film industry.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
