The Danish movie Teddy Bear, directed by Mads Dinesen, will be screened at Thailand International Film Destination Festival.
This will be the first ever Thailand International Film Destination Festival and is held to bolster credentials as a desirable shooting location.
The event is from April 1 to April 10 and will comprise a mixture of film screenings, seminars and location visits. It will also contain a short film competition with shorts to be made on the theme of Thai exploration.
Backed by Thailand’s Ministry of Culture and the Thailand Film Office, the festival expects to screen ten foreign films that have used Thai locations.
One of these films is Teddy Bear from Denmark. The movie is originally titled “Ti timer til paradis”, meaning Ten Hours from Paradise.
The 38-year-old bodybuilder Dennis wants to find true love. He has never had a girlfriend and lives alone with his mother. When his uncle marries a girl from Thailand, Dennis decides to try his own luck on a trip to Pattaya, as it seems that love is easier to find in Thailand. The intrusive Thai girls give big bruises to Dennis’ naive picture of what love should be like, and he is about to lose hope when he unexpectedly meets the Thai woman Toi. The movie is based on the 2007 short film Dennis by Mads Dinesen.
