Aiming to promote Asian cultural to French people, the film festival showcases numerous interesting movies from various countries in Asia, including China, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, just to name a few. In the 9th edition of Deauville Asian Film Festival, held from March 28th to April 1st 2007, Thai movie "Dek Hor" a.k.a. "Dorm" was selected to screen in the official competition among other 8 films. With a team of director and actors of "Dorm"presented at the festival, there were a number of interview sessions with the press from both magazines and televisions. Even though the movie didn't get any award at the festival, the reaction from the audiences and journalists that watched the film proved to be rewarding as they all loved the film. At least, we had shown the world how potential Thai movie is in this age of globalization that language is not a barrier anymore.
