Bangkok is getting an open-air film festival with ‘Krungthep Klang Plaeng’ this July

For those who enjoy the vibes of open-air viewing, ‘Krungthep Klang Plaeng’ film festival will be taking place all over Bangkok for the whole month.

The event will be happening in venues around Bangkok, and will feature a total of 25 films that Bangkokians know and love, over the course of four weeks. Each week, a different set of venues is set. There are a couple Western films in the programme, but it’s a great way to introduce yourself, along with your company, to the Thai film industry. This is because the oldest film set to be shown dates all the way back to 1959, and the films are all commercial successes that are a part of many Thai people’s memories.
