This not only reflects the co-production strategy of financing, but also the increasingly international experiences of many up-and-coming Southeast Asian filmmakers,” said Purin Pictures fund director Aditya Assarat.


He added that Purin Pictures has a partnership with post house White Light Studios to offer the post-production grants: “Similar to the previous session, most of the applications we received for post-production support were documentaries. While we are happy to be spoiled for choice with strong documentaries, we also want to encourage more fiction projects to apply.”

Directed by our director Kornpat Pawakranond. The Lost Princess is a documentary exploring the daily life of Chao Duangduen Na Chiang Mai, a princess without kingdom. The Film was shot during a complete month in Chiang Mai, the largest city in Northern Thailand.

The first part of the shooting was shot during a complete month in Chiang Mai, the largest city in Northern Thailand.


For the second part of the shooting, the approach will be quite different. We would love to explore other methods that will allow us to continue to develop the project in a sort of Cinematic Essay. These new parts of the film will be mixed with the Cinema Vérité ones that we already captured in order to make the film more poetical.
