Thailand at AFM 2017

Loews – Santa Monica Beach Hotel

Thai Night AFM 2017 to celebrate the talent at the heart of the Thai film industry.

Bangkok, October 29, 2017 – Her Royal Highness Princess Ubolratana Rajakanya Sirivadhana Barnavadi will preside over Thai Night AFM 2017 – Thailand Where Films Come Alive, an event of celebration of Thai cinema and its industry organized during the American Film Market and Conference 2017.

Held in Santa Monica on November 2nd by Thailand’s Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP), the event will showcase the work of eight leading Thai film companies including Benetone Films, GDH 559, Hollywood (Thailand), Imagimax, Kantana Sound Studio, P.L.H. Holding, Sahamongkolfilm International and The Monk Studios.

A prime example of the Thai film industry’s growing confidence is the commercial and critical success of the teen youth thriller “BAD GENIUS” directed by Nattawut Poonpiriya and produced by Thai production house GDH. Thailand’s most successful film of 2017, “BAD GENIUS” not only broke the 100 million Baht mark (US$ 3 million) at the domestic box office, but ended up becoming one of the most successful Thai films overseas, breaking Thai film earning records in several Asian countries including China. In addition, the film received high praise at international festivals, winning multiple awards, including Best Feature at the New York Asian Film Festival and Best Director at the Fantasia International Film Festival. 

Meanwhile, the competitiveness of the local film production and post-production services has translated into an uninterrupted flow of international productions selecting Thailand as their shooting destination. Last year, the number of foreign films produced in Thailand increased by 15%. Over the same period, China lead with 65. Recent films shot in Thailand include “GOLD” starring Matthew McConaughey, Edgar Ramírez and Bryce Dallas Howard, “ALL I SEE IS YOU” starring Blake Lively and Jason Clarke, “MECHANIC RESURRECTION” starring Jason Statham, and “NO ESCAPE” starring Lake Bell and Pierce Brosnan.

The attractiveness of Thailand as a film destination is set to increase thanks to the launch of the Thai film incentives. The new tax rebate program offers up to 20% cash rebate for local production expenditures that exceed US$1.5 million. The first international film to benefit from the tax rebate initiative is “CHANGELAND”, the directorial debut of actor Seth Green, starring himself and Breckin Meyer, and featuring Macaulay Culkin.

TONIGHT FRIDAY! Opening Night! The 20th Anniversary of The Arpa International Film Festival. November 3 – 5 2017 at The Egyptian Theatre 6712 Hollywood Boulevard

Article By: Marcelle - Oct• 30•17

Opening Night will kick off with a special reception and screening of DALIDA a biopic intimately capturing the true story of acclaimed Egyptian-born music icon Dalida
Hollywood, California (October 24, 2017) The American Cinematheque welcomes the 20th anniversary of The Arpa International Film Festival showcasing international cinematic gems in the heart of Hollywood at the historic Egyptian Theatre from November 3 –
This year’s highlights include a diverse range of films that explore themes such as genocide, war, and LGBTQ issues. The festival will also present thought-provoking shorts, as well a critically acclaimed thriller and a French masterpiece on the life of pop icon Dalida.
Opening Night on Friday, November 3 will kick off with a special reception and screening of DALIDA, a biopic intimately capturing the true story of acclaimed Egyptian-born music icon Dalida, who gained celebrity in the 50s, singing in French Spanish, Arabic, Hebrew, German, Italian. Her dazzling 30-year career was marked by tragic events, including her very own suicide in 1987 which forever immortalized her iconic image as a diva and renowned singer.
Our first Saturday afternoon Centerpiece program will feature Nikolay and Sergey Sarkisov’s KRASNY, a Russian-Georgian western set in the south of post-revolutionary Russia. The film tells the story of a noble woman, a red commissar and a Cossack whose paths intertwine in a most unexpected way.
On Saturday evening, our second Centerpiece program and reception will showcase Academy Award-nominated director Joe Berlinger’s powerful documentary INTENT TO DESTROY: DEATH, DENIAL AND DEPICTION, partially shot on the set of Terry George’s epic film The Promise (starring Oscar Isaac, Christian Bale, and Charlotte Le Bon). Berlinger’s film takes an unwavering look at the Armenian Genocide. Historians, scholars, and high-profile filmmakers come together in this cinematic exploration of the tangledweb of responsibility that has driven a century of denial by the Turkish government and its strategic allies.
Following INTENT TO DESTROY on Saturday night is our third Centerpiece program – Stephen C. Sepher’s (The Heist) DEAD ON ARRIVAL starring Emmy-nominated Billy Flynn (Days of Our Lives). DEAD ON ARRIVAL, inspired by the 1950 classic noir thriller D.O.A., exposes audiences to a dark world of sex, corruption and murder with Billy Flynn’s character struggling to save his life within less than 24 hours.
Earlier on Saturday, our festival goers will have the opportunity to see PINSKY, a comedy about ayoung woman who loses her girlfriend and her grandfather in the same day and moves back in with her authoritarian Russian grandmother who is determined to marry hergrand-daughter off to a nice Jewish boy.
The lead character, Sophia Pinsky, ultimately finds her way to a weekly open mic night, where on a whim she gets on stage and discovers there’s actually an audience for her Queer-Russian-Jewish-American sense of humor. The film captures the struggle between Sophia and her grandmother in an effort to define loyalty and love.
Other noteworthy films being featured throughout the day on Saturday are THE LIBERATION OF SKOPJE and H.O.M.E..
Rade Serbedzija’s latest film THE LIBERATION OF SKOPJE tells the story of cruelty of war, poverty and suffering during the occupation and liberation of what is modern-day Macedonia’s capital city of Skopje during World War II. The horrors of war are portrayed through the eyes of an 11-year-old boy whose father is away fighting in the partisan army, while his mother develops a special relationship with a German officer.
H.O.M.E. is a film woven of two stories exploring urban alienation and meaningful encountersthrough the lens of a disconnected city in constant motion. One story revolves around a young man with Asperger Syndrome who seeks refuge in the underground labyrinth of NYC. The other follows a gambling Ecuadorian livery driver & a Chinese woman desperate to get
home to her sick child.
Highlights from Sunday’s lineup include three social impact films- feature film APRICOT GROVES, and documentaries HELENA’S LAW & THE HEART OF NUBA – all of which bring much needed awareness to LGBT issues, atrocities in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan and the essence of good and evil.
APRICOT GROVES is a beautiful LGBTQ-inflected film about family, faith,brotherhood, and love. The debut feature was written and directed by Tehran-based Pouria Heidary Oureh, who masterfully tells the story of a transmasculine young man by the name of Aram who travels to Armenia from the United States where he has lived all his life. Aram finds himself in Armenia to propose marriage to an Armenian girl he met in America. He and his brother hit the road between Armenia and Iran, with the film skillfully layering subtle hints among their words, looks, and deeds.
HELENA’S LAW is a Czech documentary focusing on a police officer, as well as other key players in a case. The resulting film is a mosaic that says less about the case or its background than it does about the people who exist on the edge of the law,and about their thoughts and motivations. Filmmaker Petra Nesvačilová finds herself acting in her movie, leading her to consider questions related to the essence of crime and of good and evil in general.
Kenneth A. Carlson’s powerful THE HEART OF NUBA profiles the courageous and selfless efforts of Dr. Tom Catena, the sole doctor of a million patients in the war-torn Nuba Mountains of Sudan. Last June Tom Catena was recognized as Time Magazine’s Top 100 Most Influential People. The film’s executive producer is Maria Shriver.
