On behalf of the CSFF 2020 Board, I’d like to inform you that our 9th edition will be merged with our 10th edition, in 2021. Despite this announcement sounds like “cancellation”, our festival remains afloat in partnership, among others, with Cambodia National Short Film Festival, Phnom Penh, late 2020.

If you fail to submit your entry to our festival, we encourage you to extend it to such showcases or contests. Our spirit remains to provide (Cambodian) youth with opportunities to exhibit their short films to the public and international film festivals, as our partners, as well as empowering members and volunteers of Sunflower Film Alliance with leadership skills.

This information does not mark the end of our mission. We will see you again next year or till the situation returns to normal, with more and better quality and creative short films. Just because you can always “bring along your stories” to us!

Therefore, we hope you, as the audience and stakeholders of our festival in past editions, will carry on your whole-hearted support of our festival, in order to contribute to the growth of our film community and training of our youth for a more positive and developed society in years to come.

Gratefully yours,

Sithen SUM
Festival Director
