Another significant milestone for Cambodia Burning this week…the first OFFICIAL SELECTION in a major film festival! The film will be part of the screenings at the largest environmental film festival in the world, the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital.
Thank you to everyone who has continued to follow the story this year. This project has already become one of my most wide-reaching projects and the feedback I have received from you all has continued to encourage me.
The inclusion of this film in the DCEFF’s line-up is another fantastic opportunity to amplify the story and the threats facing Cambodia’s forests.
The film is dedicated to those conservationists and activists who are risking their lives to protect what is left of Cambodia’s biodiversity, in the face of harassment, intimidation and violence from those seeking to exploit the country’s forests.
“The Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital (DCEFF) is the world’s premier showcase of environmentally themed films since 1993. Each March in Washington, D.C., we host the largest environmental film festival in the world, presenting 100+ films to audiences of more than 20,000. Collaborating with over 110 partners, including museums, embassies, universities, and theaters, the Festival is one of the leading annual cultural events in Washington, D.C”
