One Second by Zhang Yimou (China) will open the Bangkok ASEAN Film Festival which will take place from December 8 – 13, 2021 at the SF World Cinema & Paragon Cineplex, in Bangkok, Thailand.
About the festival:
In the past 2 years, the film industry worldwide has suffered greatly from the Covid-19 pandemic. The outbreak has forced the industry to adapt its practices and strategies while trying to revive its cultural and economic importance in order to prepare for the post-Covid world.
The Bangkok ASEAN Film Festival 2021 is not only a declaration of confidence in the potential of Southeast Asian filmmakers, but also a showcase of creativity, ideas and contents that are shaping and re-energizing the region’s film industries during our uncertain times.
