The Cambodia International Film Festival is hosted by the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts and organized by FX Entertainment in association with the Cambodia Film Commission, Kmy Films and the Association of Filmmakers of Cambodia.
The first edition was held in October 2010.
Throughout the festival, movies screen at several venues in Phnom Penh. Public screenings are shown at outdoor venues. Types of movies include international independent films, award-winning documentaries, classic and modern Khmer films, youth-oriented films and films made in Cambodia, as well as showcasing some of the best locally produced TV dramas and music videos.
In addition to screenings, the festival hosts the Cinema Industry Showcase at which booths display the latest equipment, products and services available for making movies in Cambodia. There is also a strong emphasis on tourism with the opportunity to promote Cambodia as a country with a rich culture – perfect for destination travel.
