Angkor Photo Festival – Schedule of events!

I woke up this morning to find I had received the press kit with the full schedule of events for this year’s Angkor Photo Festival. Thank you Camille Plante!

If you are going to be in Siem Reap between November 20 – 27 you have got to check out this fantastic photography festival. (At the end of the article you will find a link to directly download the press kit which contains a complete day by day schedule.) You will find 10 indoor and 4 outdoor exhibitions at some of Siem Reap’s marquee locations such as Hotel de la Paix’s Arts Lounge, the McDermott Gallery, Angkor Photo Gallery, Angkor Hospital for Children, Blue Pumpkin Cafe, Raffles’ Garden and FCC Angkor. There will also be evening slide shows, events for children and of course the annual tie-in with the fantastic Anjali House for at-risk children. You will have the opportunity to see works from 110 photographers, including 50 from Asia encompassing fascinating themes from across the broader Asian continent.

As I read through the program I am once again sad and disappointed that my annual visit to Siem Reap comes to an end just a few days before the festival takes place. It looks like it is going to be a fantastic event.

For those not familiar with this sixth edition of what has become an important annual event, let me bring you up to speed with an excerpt from the press kit’s introduction:

“Created in 2oo5, the Angkor Photo Festival is the first such event to be organized in Southeast Asia. Each year, and for a week, the festival showcases exhibitions and outdoor slideshows by celebrating international and emerging Asian photographers’ works in Siem Reap. The temples of Angkor become a hub that draws both famous and passionate photographers from around the world in creativity and sharing spirit. The strong educational goals of the Angkor Photo Festival set it apart from other photography events. During their stay, famous photographers tutor Angkor Photo Workshops for emerging Asian photographers and the festival also presents its outreach programs Anjali Children’s Photo Workshops.”
