Yes, there is a short film section:
Since its creation in 2010, the new section entitled Cannes Short Film has grouped the Short Film Competition and the Short Film Corner in a complementary dynamic that aims to offer an overall view on the worldwide production of shorts.
These are supposed to be real films with real actors with a real plot. Not some typical Thai Tourism video showing temples, markets, and elephants.
The Minister of Tourism and Sports will be lucky if the Cannes Film committee accepts this commercial, but if not, I see you have a plan:
Professor Apinan said the decision to produce sequel films is now underway. The film will also be shown on planes, at schools and hospitals in France.
Keep in mind that even though the article headline is “Cannes Film Festival to feature a Thai film to promote tourism” nowhere in the article does it say whether the film has actually been accepted at Cannes. I doubt it.
Watch and judge for yourself:
So, Thailand’s Minister of Tourism and Sports continues to show her incompetence globally.
