  • This is awesome film festival. Many Cambodian ENT doctors, who are in our documentary film and showed their effort to develop their own county, were invited and enjoy the film festival.
    Thank you for selecting, screening our film and your great hospitality!!

    We had such a wonderful time at the Cambodian International Film Festival. Broken Courage was well received, and we were thrilled at the reception from everyone involved. Cedric Elroy, and Sovichea Cheap from the Cambodian Film Commission and Sopheap Chea at the Bophana Center were helpful, gracious and so welcoming. We had an excellent time! Thank you for hospitality and for putting together a fun, well-organized, meaningful and well attended festival.
