BANGKOK INDIEFEST’s 1st edition ( , running from August 6-8, has wrapped successfully after screening over 80 independent movies from around the world, including Thailand, in what has been the first international film event to take place in Bangkok since the end of the recent ‘Red Shirt’ protests.

Almost shelved by the protests and the exodus of sponsors that followed, the innaugural Bangkok IndieFest succeeded in bouncing back – with only a fraction of the budget of the Bangkok International Film Festival, to offer “a voice that’s unique on the city’s scene” (Wise Kwai Film Journal).

In so doing, Bangkok IndieFest showed the world that Bangkok is once again a fun, stable, and attractive tourist and cultural destination.
