CAMBOFEST, Cambodia uncovers another vintage pre-Khmer rouge cinema house
Here for the first time, CAMBOFEST, Cambodia (www.cambofest.com) staff present on mobile phone video one of the four original cinemas in Kampot, Cambodia.
Only three of the four original pre-Khmer Rouge era cinema houses remain in Kampot: the ‘Maraka’, the ‘Royal’ (re-discovered and brought back to life for the 2009 edition of CamboFest)
…and this one, formerly known as the __________________, to be unveiled for use as a possible venue at the 4.0 edition of CAMBOFEST: film and Video Festival of Cambodia.
Despite a grass-roots budget and largely volunteer staff, CamboFest surprised UNESCO and others in the Cambodian context by re-discovering and bringing back to life the vintage ‘Royal’ cinema for its 2009 edition (as seen in our blog at => cambofest.blogspot.com )
Founded by media producer and filmmaker Jason Rosette in 2553 (2007), CamboFest is the longest running international movie event in Cambodia.
