The 6th National Film Festival 2019 from Nov 26-29, is themed “Together to Promote Cambodia Film”, to serve as a platform for the gathering of Cambodia filmmakers to share notes and showcase their best creativity in filmmaking.

The performing arts is truly one of the best ways to experience a country’s colourful culture. The story-telling through films and movies – masterfully created by amateur actors and musicians as well – will account for the region’s diversity in history, beliefs, heritage and lifestyle.

The 6th National Film Festival 2019 is aimed at initiating audiences to the cinematic arts, promote international filmmaking and present quality productions made in and about Cambodia by national and international filmmakers.

Participated by many renowned filmmakers, actors and actresses and thousands of movie enthusiasts, the Sixth National Film Festival is tangible proof that Cambodia’s film industry has no shortage of talented musicians and actors with eloquent stories to articulate.

Pushing on year after year, the 6th National Film Festival 2019 has high hopes to enrich the local film industry to continue making more impact on Cambodia’s conservative society and strengthen the cultural film sector.

The jury of the Sixth National Film Festival 2019 will evaluate and judge from a selection of the best films nominated for the festival, as well as offering 10 outstanding individual awards. In addition, the event is also a forum for ‘brain-storming’ to put domestic films on equal footing in the foreign film market as well.

We would also like to thank the members of the jury and the audience and performers for always providing the support, which will make a valuable impact on the future organisation of our national film festival process in a proud and confident manner.”
