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.
