Red Sense at CamboFest

Poster for the premiere of The Red Sense last March
Though it enjoyed its world premiere in Melbourne, Australia in March of this year, The Red Sense has still not been seen in Cambodia. However, the wait will soon be over as I've just been given the nod that it will be an entry into the 2008 CamboFest Film & Video Festival to be held in Siem Reap later this month, between 26-29 December. Day 2 (27th) at 10pm at XBar on the end of Pub Street is the date and place and it is hoped that director Tim Pek will be able to make the screening of his all Khmer movie, filmed in Oz about a women who discovers the identity of her father's killer. CamboFest is full of other interesting films but I won't pre-empt the official programme release any further. Suffice to say that The Red Sense will be winging its way here very soon.

Hot News: Due to public demand, the When Elephants Weep production will host one additional show on Thursday this week, with all tickets at $5. Be quick, it's certain to sell out within hours. Telephone Amrita on 023 220 424 for tickets.
More Hot News: I just received an invitation from the Australian Embassy to attend tomorrow's gala opening of the Aussie Film Festival here in Phnom Penh at ACE and then onto the premiere screening of the movie Lucky Miles at Cinema Lux. How nice of them to think of little old me - and I'm not even Australian. The festival will show half a dozen films at Cinema Lux over 4 days from 4-7 December, and all tickets are free.
