“DancingRains” has been set up to focus on a wide range of film projects such as feature films, TV/web series and movie sales agency. The two co-founders have been recognized locally and internationally. Sithen has been involved in short film production and festival since 2009 and recently graduated from Busan Asian Film School (AFiS). Rithea followed suit in 2010 while mostly sought after for international projects like “First They Killed My Father“.
They have both worked on several film projects, including the current family social melodrama: “Precious Pond” (formerly known as “The Healing Field”). It was developed through AFiS’s course and selected to pitch in Link of CineAsia last October. Rithea is producing “Soul Searching“, an unprecedented horror-comedy winning the top prize from Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival, last July.
Understanding the ongoing needs of a local qualified production team, yet with international standards, “DancingRains” will introduce its new benchmarks to both local and regional markets, with upcoming exciting projects. Other co-productions include: “Late Night Coconuts” with a co-screenwriter of Cambodian action blockbusters “Jailbreak” and “The Prey” and “Egg of Love”, with a Cambodian leading production.
Just for your curiosity, we name ourselves “DancingRains” because this is about life. It always faces ups and downs or rains or sunshine. Yet, if we can even dance in the rains, no obstacles would stop us from achieving our great works (hopefully, with you)!
Happy New Year 2019, through rains or sunshine!

Next month, I am going to graduate from Busan Asian Film School in International Film Business. As my graduation work, this survey is designed to assess the level of interest among Cambodian filmmakers, professionals, and enthusiasts, in a potential film college in Cambodia. Please answer all the questions, if possible, including your email address. I will use them only for our academic purposes.
Do you think Cambodia needs a film college? If yes, join me now to answer this survey here. Instead, if you have friends who may be interested in this topic, please share it with them! Thanks in advance.
