The Thai independent film scene is thriving, with a new generation of filmmakers coming to the fore. Often carrying undertones of social, political or economic uncertainty and realities in contemporary Thailand, common themes emerge – memory and imagination, love and loss, decay and regeneration. This season features five award-winning debut films from the Thai ‘second new wave’.

Festival Programme

We’ve got a packed month of great films in London featuring five award-winning debut films from the Thai ‘second new wave’ and we’re delighted to be welcoming director of Lee Chatametikool to London for this event. His debut feature will be released in the UK on 26 June and will screen at Thai Indie Fest along with Q&As. Best known as long-time collaborator and editor for Palme d’Or winner Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Lee Chatametikool has been at the heart of the Thai independent filmmaking scene as an editor and post-production supervisor, and has made his mark as a director winning three Thai National Film Awards this year for his debut film Concrete Clouds.
