More than 70 films from around the globe come to town in the World Film Festival of Bangkok

Postponed from November following the death of His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the World Film Festival of Bangkok returns to town this month, with screenings running from January 23 to February 1 at SF World Cinema at CentralWorld.

A total of 72 films will be shown over the 10 days of the festival and with a menu that includes new award-winning films to cinema classics and animations, it’s a line-up that’s guaranteed to please.

The festival will open with Studio Ghibli’s “The Red Turtle”, an animation without dialogue that was produced in collaboration with French distributor Wild Bunch. It follows the major life stages of a castaway on a deserted tropical island populated by turtles, crabs and birds. The film won the Special Jury Prize in the Un Certain Regard category at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
