Chulalongkorn University's International Film Festival 2010 opens on Monday. This year's highlight is The White Ribbon by Michael Haneke (director of Funny Games and Cache), screening on 20th August.
The White Ribbon won the Palme d'Or at Cannes last year, and Chula screened a previous Palme d'Or winner (Four Months, Three Weeks, & Two Days) at its 2008 Festival. (Last year's Festival ran from 2008-2009; this year's Palme d'Or winner was, of course, Uncle Boonmee.) The Chula Festival runs until 3rd September, and all screenings are free.
