CIFF 2015 Guide

The 6th annual Cambodia International Film Festival that launched last night and runs until December 10 once again delivers a feast of cinema with all sorts of flavours from Cambodia and overseas from art house to unapologetic crowd-pleasers. The goal of the festival is not only to present other cultures, and exchange ideas but also to be a crossroad for young and more experienced film professionals to expose their work. Tickets are $1 and available at the venues from one hour before screenings. Booklets of 10 tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the Bophana Center and from venues during the festival.
