After being virtually obliterated by the Khmer Rouge, Cambodia’s artistic and cultural traditions are gradually seeing a revival, thanks largely to the few performers and instructors who survived the regime. See the Phnom Penh Post and Friday’s Cambodia Daily for full details of what’s on. The city is also showing interest in cinema – after the years of repression 2010 saw the launch of the first annual Cambodian International Film Festival (cambodia-iff.com), with screenings of 120 films from thirty countries at theatres and outdoor arenas throughout the city. Now in its fourth year (and held annually in December), the festival is going strong. Galleries, meanwhile, hosting changing exhibitions of art and sculpture, proliferate; check the magazine Asia Life to find out what is coming up.
