ABOUT THAILAND SHORT FILM COMPETITION

Over one hundred film-makers from across the globe will have the opportunity to fly to Thailand and make a short film.

An official event, sponsored by the Thailand Film Office, Department of Tourism, the competing teams will be provided with return flights, four nights accommodation, a budget of 30,000 Thai Baht (approx USD 1,000), and professional production support. Also, the winning films will receive prizes totaling 570,000 Thai Baht (approx USD 16,500.)

Each team will comprise two film-makers, who will be challenged to see who has the imagination, creativity, resourcefulness, and ingenuity to be able to research, travel, and make a film in a new and unfamiliar country in a limited time.

This will be a fine opportunity for the participating teams to meet film-makers from across the world, to share ideas and learn from the different cultures, and to visit the extraordinary Kingdom of Thailand.

Starting 19th July 2017, the chosen filmmakers from across the world will gather in Thailand and prepare for the challenge of their lives. Over the next six days, they will spread across Thailand in 24 teams and each make a short film. They must find the subject; actors or interviewees, take on all the technical roles, and edit the film to a deadline on 25th July 2017.

News updates on the progress of the teams will appear on this website, and also on the Facebook page.
