Pattaya —

Pattaya Mayor Poramase Ngampiches is planning to host a film festival this year to boost tourism.

The idea was brought up at a City Hall meeting last October by Poramase in an effort to improve tourism in Pattaya. Roughly, the festival will feature the film festival, movies on the beach, and a film camp to teach students from 11 schools in Pattaya to make short films of their interest.

The festival will be held in 2023 likely around July although the exact date is still not released by the authorities.

TPN notes the idea of a film festival in Pattaya has been around for many years and was seriously being organized just before COVID shut down tourism for over two years.
