The Covid-19 outbreak has been declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). Since March, the pandemic has severely affected the healthcare systems and disrupted social and economic well-being of countries around the globe. The film industry, too, has been forced to become virtually inactive for months. To play a part in reviving the situation as the outbreak has eased, the Bangkok ASEAN Film Festival 2020 aims to stimulate the economy through the film and video industry, and to lift the morale and spirits of professionals in the Thai filmmaking sector, as well as their Southeast Asian counterparts. The festival represents cooperation among ASEAN members in an effort to revive and drive forward the film industry of the region.
