This year’s edition of the Italian Film Festival Bangkok schedules three collateral events:
1. Italian-Thai 90 seconds short film competition, organised in cooperation with Benetone Films. It is a prize contest for local and foreign filmmakers working in Thailand that aims to promote the production of 90-second shorts on the theme “COLOUR OF ITALY”, where the word “colour” is intended in broad terms and includes the representation of images, sensations and fragrances associated with Italy in Thailand. The winners of the contest will be announced on 12 September and the winning shorts will be screened in the cinema theatres before the showing of the Italian films participating in the Festival.
2. Roundtable on film distribution and co-production, aimed at promoting Italy and Thailand as cinematographic “locations”, scheduled for 14 September at the Italian Embassy (by invitation only).
3. Workshop on Italian cinema, co-organised by the Associazione Dante Alighieri Bangkok and the Chulalongkorn University on 16 September.
