People watch movies in Kampot town as part of the French Cultural

Center’s (CCF) “cinema tour” on April 18.  The tour has been repeatedly

working its way through 12 provincial towns since March 6, attracting

crowds of more than 1,000 with its screenings of Khmer-dubbed French

features, Cambodian short films and photography. CCF director Alain

Arnaudet said this year’s inaugural tour had been enormously popular.

“We didn’t expect it to be so successful,” he said. “Now we want to

expand the project. We hope to go to other cities in 2009.” The tour

wraps up on June 7. (Sebastian Strangio)
