7 Mar - Having made a name for itself as one of the biggest film festivals in the Kingdom of Cambodia, the Cambodia International Film Festival (CIFF) is returning for its 9th edition this March.
This year, the annual film festival will take place from 9 to 14 March 2019, across nine venues around Phnom Penh.
As usual, tickets will be provided on a first come, first served basis one hour before each screening, with last-minute tickets priced at USD1.25.
The 9th edition of CIFF will present a selection of over 120 films from 37 countries including international feature films, short films, documentaries, and animations.
"The Prey" the latest film from "Jailbreak" director Jimmy Henderson, has been set as the closing film. It will be screened under the Feature Films: Stories in Cambodia segment. However, only that one screening is scheduled for the title, so fans can only catch it at the closing ceremony on 14 March.
Some of the other prominent pictures to screen at this year's CIFF include Angelina Jolie's "First They Killed My Father" (2017), Caylee So and Sok Visal's "In The Life of Music" (2018), Denis Do's "Funan" (2018), Rithy Panh's "The Missing Picture" (2013) and "Graves Without a Name" (2018), and Peter Farrelly's Oscar-winning feature "Green Book" (2018).
There will also be special highlight sections for the Philippine and Swedish cinema, and a retrospective glance at the fall of the Khmer Rouge Regime forty years ago.
