8th World Film Festival of Bangkok

8th World Film Festival of Bangkok
Insects In The Backyard
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
The 8th World Film Festival of Bangkok opened on 5th November, and will close on 14th November. The Festival venue, Paragon Cineplex, is the same as last year, though additional screenings are also being held at Major Cineplex Ekkamai.

Tanwarin Sukkhapisit's film Insects In The Backyard, which was screened on 6th and 8th November, has subsequently been refused a certificate by Thai censors, and therefore will not receive a general theatrical release. It received its world premiere at the Vancouver International Film Festival in Canada earlier this year.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, screening today and tomorrow, is an anthology of three feminist short films, each by a different director (Breakfast by Wang Jing, realistically mundane; Lunch by Anocha Suwichakornpong, amusingly trivial; Dinner by Kaz Cai, superbly stylised). The directors took part in a Q&A after today's screening.
