Now in its 6th year, the Angkor Photo Festival is the first photography festival to be held in Southeast Asia.
Each year, the weeklong event hosts exhibitions and outdoor slideshows, many at The FCC Angkor, by celebrated international and emerging Asian photographers in Siem Reap. The temples of Angkor become a hub for photographers to gather in a spirit of creativity and sharing.
The strong educational goals of the Angkor Photo Festival set it apart from other photography events.
During their stay, renowned photographers tutor emerging Asian photographers in the free Angkor Photo Workshops, while the festival operates its own outreach program: the Anjali Children's Photo Workshops.
Consistent with the festival's mission of highlighting emerging Southeast Asian photographers, of the 110 photographers exhibiting in 2010, 50 are from Asia. The work is curated by three well-known figures in photography, Yumi Goto, Antoine d'Agata and Françoise Callier, the Program Director of the Angkor Photo Festival.
All events at the festival are entirely free of charge.
The FCC Angkor will hosts multimedia slideshows Sunday Nov 21 through Thursday Nov 25 at 8 p.m.
The Angkor Photo Festival's closing night ceremonies are held at The FCC Angkor on Saturday Nov 27. Begins at 8 p.m., with a big party afterward.
