Latest news on Bangkok International Film Festival
24 April 2005
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), the main organizer of Bangkok International Film Festival (BIFF), has recently summarized the result of the third event and is planning some changes for the next festival.
Festival dates will be potentially postponed to the end of February or early of March next year. The main venue will be moved to a new claimed-to-be Southeast Asia s biggest shopping mall Siam Paragon, situated right in the downtown area and close to hotels and movie theatres. The place also has a conventional hall which is more suitable for the film market arrangements than the previous venues where hotel rooms were adapted into market offices.
Claiming as the second biggest film festival in Asia , following only to the Pusan International Film Festival, the TAT also gave several figures. Here are the lists:
Total available seats
Film market participants
Film market deals
US$ 12.5 million
US$ 25 million (25% Thai film)
Total film screened
