“失去愛” (Love Lost) screened “In-Competition” at the 13th Thai Short Film & Video Festival 2009

29 08 2009

After my TVC job in Bangkok, I stayed for another 4days for the 13th Thai Short Film & Video Festival! “失去愛” (Love Lost) was screened “In-Competition” for the International Competition! 🙂

I haven’t been in Bangkok for about 8years, I think! The changes are quite a lot, with the Metro & BTS. But the creative energy is still there!

The festival is being held in the newly opened Bangkok Arts & Cultural Center which is just opposite MBK, right smack in the city center shopping district. Didn’t get to shop much, but went DVD hunting instead. Hard to get Thai films by some of my favourite Thai directors like Pen-ek, Wisit, Aditya or Apitchatpong. But managed to get a copy of “Tropical Malady” – Hurray! I guess the situation is the same everywhere in South East Asia.

Here are some pics from my adventures!

It touches quite a lot of aspects of the gay & lesbian issues, like a Docu on having children in Spain for gay & lesbian couples. There is even a very good gay thai comedy called “Hungry or Full”!
