CIFF (Submissions)


Submissions are accepted for consideration. Our inaugural year (2010) is exhibition only – not a competition. At least one filmmaker representing the production is highly recommended to attend. Filmmakers are encouraged to contact international governmental and arts organizations for assistance to attend.

Productions should have some measure of success either through festival recognition or distribution, so that the visiting filmmaker is able to be a role model for local Cambodians. It is our intention to include a variety of productions from many different countries around the world.

The non-competitive Cambodia International Film Festival (CIFF) objective is to inspire, exchange and educate, bringing international filmmakers to screen their latest movies and share their skills with Khmer filmmakers. All events of the Festival are designed to boost the local film/TV sector, inspiring good citizenship and developing the understanding of the art of cinema for all types of audiences.

Films are selected on the basis of quality and originality. Preference is given to premieres. The Festival also promotes contacts between film professionals to enhance the development of the Cambodia film industry.

The Cambodia International Film Festival is the largest cinema event in Cambodia. For 4 days, film lovers, filmmakers, industry professionals and media watch the best in new cinema from established masters and new talent. Up-and-coming Khmer filmmakers gain unparalleled insight into the workings of the international market. The Festival also provides excellent resources and networking opportunities for film-industry professionals and buyers.

The 2010 Cambodia International Film Festival will include, but will not be limited to, the following programmes: Galas, special exhibitions, feature films, short films , documentaries, youth program.

Selected films will be placed in the appropriate programme by the Festival Organizing Committee in consultation with the filmmaker.

In addition to the Festival , the CIS (Cambodia Industry Showcase) will offer the opportunity for all professionals to expose their know-how and services and to exchange about the latest technologies.

The Cambodia International Film Festival is hosted by the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts and organized by FX Entertainment in association with the Cambodia Film Commission, Kmy Films and the Association of Filmmakers of Cambodia.

The Festival reserves the right to rule on cases not foreseen by these regulations.
