3rd Annual Film Conference

Khmer Times Share:

PHNOM PENH, March 24, (Khmer Times) – The 3rd annual FilmCAMpKH conferencea, a one day event was held  at the University of Puthisastra. 
The community event brought together film lovers and film makers to learn techniques and featured workshops, discussions, screenings and networking and was presided over by Mr. Khieu Kanharith, the Minister of Information.
Both Cambodian and international presenters spoke on topics such as screenwriting, acting, storyboards and production. “I decided to be a presenter because so many people are interested in film and this is the chance for us to share,” said Mr. Chhay Bora, director of Lost Loves, who is also participating as a mentor throughout the next week during the scheduled marathon to make short films. 
“I am coaching young filmmakers and I can share my experience with them. I will spend a half day teaching them skills in a workshop and then I will help them when it is time to shoot to observe and guide them.”
Around 500 participants attended the event. “I like photography and that is related to film,” Miss Sangvat Bormey, an IFL student said. “I learned about the process of film marketing. Even though it is not my major, it was interesting to learn about new things.”
The event was organized by a troop of volunteers, like Miss Kong Soraksmey, also an IFL student. “It was my first time volunteering and it was kind of amazing. There were a lot of things for me to learn.” Her responsibilities included preparing t-shirts and handing out flyers. “The most challenging experience was time management.”
Managing FilmCAMpKH every year is the curator, Mr. Sum Sithen. “One of the differences in 2014 is that we extended the sessions from a half hour to 1 hour to give the speakers more time to discuss their topics. This year we added Cineclub, which is a screening of a selected movie. We analyzed the movie afterward to help the filmmakers improve their skills,” he said.
