The 16th Thai Short Film and Video Festival will begin tomorrow at Bangkok Art and Culture Centre and runs until Aug 26, with Thai and international shorts and a series of lectures on topics ranging from digital storytelling to the ordeal of Chinese film-makers. This year, the festival received nearly 500 entries, virtually all of them shot on HD. In a rare and generous gesture, the festival screened every film sent to them an unusual practice for any movie festival in a so-called "marathon screening" last month. The organisers made the cut, and about 100 finalists will be shown this month. All screenings are free of charge. More information, call 02-800-2716.
