Sun shines on Phuket Film Festival

MUMBAI: The sun seems to be finally shining on the Phuket Film Festival. After reorganizing its schedule and having to drop some films from its line-up, due to a decision to release projection equipment as a cost saving measure, tickets have begun to sell and special events are seeing a good turnout of patrons.

 

Meet the Directors at Capt Yamu featuring New York based, Hollywood director Darnell Martin was plagued by the rains and technical difficulties, but by the time the rains broke, the technicians had the projection equipment up and operating.

 

"Last night worked out nicely, even with the rough start. Thank you so much for putting together a lovely evening for my son and me," said. Martin. "We have to fail at our dreams before we can succeed, or we haven’t dreamed big enough. This festival could totally work. In the end, the community won’t care about the things that went wrong."

 

Friday’s Thailand premiere of Bitter/Sweet which was filmed entirely in Thailand (in English and Thai languages) will be attended by film stars and other glitterati at the Coliseum Cineplex in Phuket Town and after party at Vijitt Resort. The film opens across Thailand later next week.

 

On Saturday,12 June, Vietnamese action thriller Bay Rong (Clash) screens with director Le Thanh Son attending.

 

"In Vietnam we know Thailand for the excellent film technicians who are completely dedicated to their work. They are the best in all of Asia," Le Than Son said.

 

Saturday also sees the last screening of Repo Men in Thailand.

 

Saturday night also features screening of two movies which were cut from the schedule.

 

Phuket Film Festival wraps on Sunday, 13 June, with the World Premiere of Yuthlert Sippak’s Friday Killer.
