"Open World Cinema"

The Office of Contemporary Art and Culture, Thai Film Archive (Public Organization), and Chiang Rai Film Club, proudly introduce a special cinematic experience: “Open World Cinema”, at Thailand Biennale, Chiang Rai 2023. This unique cinema will showcase a curated selection of films, as well as the forum to capture the essence of Chiang Rai through the eyes of Chiang Rai and international film directors. Rare and valuable classic Thai films will also be screened at the event.

The Open World Cinema aligns with the main theme of Thailand Biennale, Chiang Rai 2023, titled 'The Open World.' This theme celebrates diversity, a defining characteristic of Chiang Rai, and the films presented at this event offer perspectives from both local and international filmmakers, fostering a deeper understanding of Chiang Rai.

The program aims to introduce Chiang Rai's film directors to audiences and promote appreciation for the artistry of international filmmakers. The specially designated theater will be open to the public from December 9, 2023, to January 28, 2024, at two locations: Chiang Rai International Art Museum (CIAM) and the Old Chiang Rai City Hall (Outdoor Cinema).

The general public is invited to attend the Open World Cinema at Thailand Biennale, Chiang Rai 2023, from December 9, 2023 onwards.

All programs are available to the public free of charge with advanced reservation.
