CCCL in collaboration with the U.S. Embassy Bangkok and the American Film Showcase (AFS) organizes the second edition of CCCL Panorama: Gulf of Thailand, a climate storytelling forum for emerging filmmakers to develop their knowledge about climate change issues around the Gulf of Thailand and shape their storytelling in the process of developing a short film. At the end of the program, participating filmmakers will have an opportunity to pitch their projects (fiction or non-fiction). One promising project will receive a film production grant of 30,000 Baht. The program is set to take place from June 2-4, 2023 in Bangkok.
CCCL Panorama: Gulf of Thailand aims to support emerging Thai filmmakers (under 25 years old) to develop quality short films on climate change themes with a particular focus on impacts on lives in the coastal areas in the southern part of Thailand. It is designed to provide them opportunities to enhance their understanding of a wide range of climate change issues in these important coastal areas in order to ensure that the content of their short films is consistent with actual impacts experienced by the communities and tell inspiring stories of local efforts to fight climate challenges The filmmakers will have opportunities to share and receive feedback on their respective film projects on both the content and filmmaking aspects.
Participating filmmakers will also learn from climate experts, activists and community leaders through in-person workshops, roundtable discussions, and site visits during the forum.
