This year's Bangkok International Film Festival will go ahead in July, organisers said yesterday, dispelling rumours it had been cancelled.
The 10-day festival would open at SF CentralWorld Plaza on July 19.
However the budget had been cut to only 60 million baht, well down on last year's 180 million baht budget.
Organisers hope to showcase about 100 titles, with a team of Thai programmers responsible for film selection.
Festival director Chattan Kunjara na Ayudhya said this year's festival would be geared more towards Asian films with organisers hoping to attract a larger Thai audience than the festival had in previous years
