Thai Film Foundation

Thai Film FoundationAlthough cinema has been part of Thai culture for over 100 years, it is perceived primarily as a means of entertainment. At the end of 1994, The Thai Film Foundation, a non-profit organization, was established by film activists to promote the film culture in Thailand.

The Foundation works closely with the Film Archive of Thailand to promote the significance of film preservation by organising classical film shows and by publishing a number of publications to encourage in-depth studies of Thai film history.

One of the main activities is the Thai Short Film and Video Festival, which started in 1997 aiming to encourage an independent spirit and to expose hidden creativity. In 2011 the Thai Film Foundation in cooperation with the Film Archive, co-organised the Salaya Doc-Salaya International Documentary Film Festival, an annual event for documentary films.
