Cine Saturday is a weekly program that aims at raising awareness on our film archives as well as those of private collections. Screenings are free and take place every Saturday at 5pm, in the Bophana Center’s movie theater. Film directors are often invited to meet the public.
The Cine Club enables young Cambodian film lovers to discover every other Saturday a wide range of movies from all over the world.
