Call for entries: Chaktomuk Short Film Contest 2013

In Southeast Asia's film industries, Cambodia is among those that are still struggling in the "emerging" category. The country at one time had a vital, much-acclaimed film industry, as documented in Golden Slumbers. But then talents from this Golden Age were snuffed or scattered by the brutal Khmer Rouge, and the Cambodian film industry has been on the ropes ever since.

Cambodian cinema has started to rise back up in recent years with more and more features being made and more young independent filmmakers coming out with new works. Last month's Cambodia International Film Festival, the third edition, featured several new Cambodian films.

Another new film event is the Chaktomuk Short Film Contest and Film Camp, which holds its second edition this year. They have a call for entries until February 28 for shorts in three categories: Southeast Asian competition, Cambodian competition and Women's Rights. Films must have been completed after January 2011 and entries are open to all genres except documentaries. Check out the website for further details.
