If you're in the mood for a Thai comedy with a musical twist, then "A Gift", a well-received omnibus film by four Thai directors will do the trick, as the film was granted royal permission to feature music by the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
The other three films screening during the festival are, "One Day" a romance drama starring Chantavit Dhanasevi and Nittha Jirayungyurn, "Mr. Hurt" a comedy starring Sunny Suwanmethanon, Mashannoad Suvalmas and Pongsatorn Jongwilak and "The Crown", a drama film by Ekachai Srivijaya revolving around the Nohra, a traditional dance of the people of Southern Thailand.
The best part? All of these Thai films will be screened for free! With Cinema Online being the official media partner of the Thai Film Festival, to redeem two free tickets per person (while stocks last), present this article at the ticketing counters of the GSC cinema locations mentioned above.
