We are very privileged to be part of the inaugural Thai film festival, Film On The Rocks Yao Noi which was curated by Tilda Swinton, cultural activist and producer and Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Thai film maker. The festival was hosted by Nat Sarasas and Chomwan Weeraworawit. The objective was to promote film and visual arts and at the sametime, supporting upcoming local artists and film makers. It was a very private and unique film festival which gathered art, film, fashion and music people at the Six Senses Yao Noi resort. Film screenings on different settings each night, one of them was an archipelago cinema designed by Ole Shereen, a screen projected on the limestone outcrops that rise out of the waters of the Andaman Sea as well as screening at a local village carnival on the rice paddy field.
