Aditya Assarat's Phuket is in the international competition at the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival.
The Thai-South Korean tourism co-production stars Soo Jung Lim as a South Korean actress on vacation on Thailand's resort island of Phuket. Desperate to escape the constant telephone calls from her agency and the hordes of Thai fans, she finds an unexpected friend in Pong, the hotel limo driver. He's played by veteran leading man Sorapong Chatree.
The short had its premiere last year at the Pusan fest.
The Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival -- the world's capital of short films -- runs from January 29 to February 6.
