The FCCT presents outstanding documentary films every Monday night at 7:00 PM (except holidays), followed by a discussion, or in some cases a Q&A with the director via Skype. Many of these films have won international documentary film awards. The subjects of these documentaries cover a wide range as the films are for the general public.
The films are provided by the Thailand Documentary Club, which has brought acclaimed recent documentaries to Thailand. A film critic and Bioscope movie magazine's editor, Thida Plitpholkarnpim, came up with a grass-roots way of tapping into the welcome recent trend of documentaries being eaten up by local audiences. She funded her operation initially through crowdfunding. Since then, the Thailand Documentary Club has had great success with their documentaries being shown at various Thailand cinemas and other venues.
The Thailand Documentary Club buys showing rights from international film distributors and then adds Thai subtitles. So all the FCCT Monday night films are suitable for all Thais. These movies are free for FCCT members and 150 baht for non-members. The schedule is available by weekly email (request to subscribe to firstname.lastname@example.org
), the FCCT website at www.fccthai.com, and the FCCT Facebook page at www.facebook.com/FCCThailand/
