          In the opening address, H.E. Lada underlined that film is one of the best channels to relate stories, appreciate thinking, way of life and culture, through languages, actions and expression of emotion. It is therefore believed that this event would achieve its objective in strengthening friendship as well as deepening social and cultural bonds between Thailand and Malaysia, as well as other international friends of Thailand, while opening wider doors for more economic opportunities of future collaboration among film and entertainment industry players.


          Her Excellency also added that the Thai Film Festival is an occasion to celebrate the success of Thai film industry, which has been recognised as one of the world renowned hubs for film production. In 2022, a total of 348 movies were filmed in Thailand, generating a revenue of 6.4 billion baht (approximately 188 millions USD). Furthermore, It is a great opportunity to acknowledge Thailand’s creative economy, as well as the creativity of Thai directors, producers, script writers, and the talents of Thai actors and actresses whose skills are internationally recognized.
