Bangkok Film Market all set

Event to take place July 23 - 25

HONG KONG — Bizzers were reassured that the Bangkok Film Market is on course to take place for the fourth time from July 23-25.

Surasak Sunpituksaree, secretary general of the Federation of National Film Assns. of Thailand, said all 96 booths had been allocated and that the mart will be divided into five sections, including production and animation.

Event, which runs as a sidebar to the larger Bangkok Film Festival (running July 19-29), had been under a cloud caused by budget cuts and a change of man-agement.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), which underwrites the fest but has dramatically sliced its contribution, said that it has had a change of heart con-cerning the seminar program. In the hope that it will attract a significant student aud, TAT has absorbed the cost of the workshops and said admission will be free.

Seminar program includes discussions of censorship in Thailand, copyright issues, cinematography and the unique world view of Japanese clay animation company Okinawa Digital Motion.
