Kon Khmer Koun Khmer are a self-sustained team of young students and artists whose main focus is on film production and arts management. The team formed around a 2009 project by French Cambodian filmmaker Davy Chou, and is now run by young Cambodian managerial board and supervised by a multinational advisory board.

Our vision is to encourage young Cambodian leaders by honouring their creativity as filmmakers, serving them in the context of achieving their personal projects and sharing their pieces of work with the world so that these positive legacies can be passed on to next generations. 

Their projects to date include “Twin Diamonds”, “Golden Re-Awakening of Cambodian Cinema of ‘60s and ‘70s Film Exhibition” and “Rock n Roll Party” in 2009, as well as a number of works done in partnership with other organisations in 2010.

They are now prepared to start filming a movie called “Boyfriend,” a short fiction piece, and another film called “Second Reel”, a feature fiction piece for TBC. Photo WILL BAXTER
