Thai short films in France

The Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival runs from February 1 to 9, and features three Thai films in competition.

In the International Competition is Going Home, about a woman wanting to go home, by Pratchay Lampongchat.

A film about a soundman searching in vain for silence, this film was part of the Short Films Project in Commemoration of the Celebration on the Auspicious Occasion of His Majesty the King's 80th Birthday Anniversary.

Also in the Labo competition is A Voyage of Foreteller by Dutch-trained director Jakrawal Nilthamrong.

The Thai films in the Panorama section are:
