Chaktomuk Short Film Festival is organized in Phnom Penh by a Cambodian film collective Kon Khmer Koun Khmer and known as the first short film festival in Cambodia which promotes and rewards every year talented filmmakers in Cambodia as well as in the South-East Asia since 2012.
For the first two years, 2012 and 2013, the Festival was launched as a short film online competition format. In 2012 the contest was for only local filmmakers. In 2013 it aimed at both local and other South-East Asian filmmakers.
With such a success story, the Festival is organized at the same time as FIlmCampKH, another annual flagship of the collective during March. The twin events have positively impacted the film sector in Cambodia, though, on a voluntary basis with financial backup by relevant local and regional partners. CSFF aims to stimulate young people to make more creative and quality films and to inspire other potential filmmakers to pursue this spirit. Take part of this emerging Festival now to leave your mark for the next generations of filmmakers and film lovers.
