CCCL Panorama: Mekong serves as a forum for young Thai filmmakers to explore and discuss the impacts on communities in the Mekong River basins and other important and relevant issues. In this forum, filmmakers will meet local environmental activists and experts, get exposure to international climate films, and learn about filmmaking from professional filmmakers.
The first edition of CCCL Panorama will be a 2-day event, with a film screening, climate change conversations, a filmmaking workshop, and a pitching forum. It is designed for professional and non-professional filmmakers who would like to explore climate change filmmaking. The participants, selected from the open call, will be exposed to issues about the Mekong crisis and climate change in Thailand, as well as to knowledge about film production and film business. Each participant will also have an opportunity to pitch their short film project to a judging panel that consists of CCCL staff, professional filmmakers, and environmental experts. One promising project will receive a film production grant of 20,000 Baht.
The application for the CCCL Panorama: Mekong is open until October 15, 2021.
First-round selected teams will be contacted. All teams will be notified the result in early November.
