Thank you for posting this. I wish I had time to see everything you're planning to see. I'm finding it particularly vexing that many of the Southeast Asian films appear to be clustered at overlapping times.

The move back to multiple cinemas this year will also make it a logistical challenge. I actually have to hope the ads before the films are long in order to make a couple of the screenings I'm looking at.

I will be seeing you around.

yes, we must split to collect the movies as much as we can. I will get HERE, The Moon at the Bottom of the well, Huacho, 9808 and The Forbidden Door.

As i see both of your schedule, i thought this may be the first festival that i won't see Filmsick and Madame Celinejulie. So let's meet at the end of the day : )

celinejulie said...

And who will see KINATAY and the new James Lee's film? I want to see KINATAY very much, because I want Coco Martin. I regret that there are many great films I can't fit into my schedule.

I decide that this year I won't run back and forth between theatres, because it is difficult to do that while wearing high-heel shoes, and I'm afraid I will sweat and then I have to put on a new make-up every time. :-)

Filmsick and Vespertine, maybe we can meet at Indra, Pratunam (ห้างอินทรา ประตูน้ำ) each night. After watching the film E SAO UNTARAI (อีสาวอันตราย), Noinong and I don't want to go shopping at Paragon any more, but we want to go shopping at Indra for nostalgia's sake. :-)

FILMSICK said...

i want to see THE SCAR in theatre!!!

WiseKwai said...

I want to see PLOY TALAY. I missed it when it was shown in the Cherd Songsri Retrospective two years ago.

celinejulie said...

Among Cherd's films, I think I like PLOY TALAY the most, because one of the heroines in this film is a "grey" character. She is very human, and have both the quality of heroine and the quality of villainess in herself.
