CAMBOFEST: Film and Video Festival of Cambodia (www.cambofest.com)
wraps its 3rd season at vintage pre-Khmer Rouge cinema house,
especially resurrected for the event, with stills and video now
viewable - and being continually updated - on our official blog
This year's Cambofest was held in the Coastal town of Kampot,
Cambodia, in a vintage, pre-Khmer Rouge era cinema house, the 'Royal',
which CamboFest successfully resurrected against all odds for this
The 'Royal' had been built in the 1950s, and was a popular local movie
house until the Khmer Rouge regime took power in 1975. The venue came
back to life in 1985, showing mainly Cambodian, Chinese, and Indian
films, but was shuttered again in 1988 due to lack of political
stability and dwindling audience numbers.
The 'Royal' lay dormant since 1988...
...until this year's CAMBOFEST
