Hi--

Here at CAMBOFEST, we provide feedback for all movies, accepted or not
(now in our 3rd season). We also have a special for June by the way:
2 submissions for one entry fee for "Experimental" films...during our
rural/countryside screenings, we found that Experimental/visual
abstract work often goes over well with Cambodian audiences, as long
as it's not too static.
