dusitD2 baraquda Pattaya to host South East Asia’s first rooftop film festival 2012


Pattaya’s trend-setting & leading design hotel – the dusitD2 baraquda pattaya — in collaboration with the Goethe-Institute and the Embassy of Germany will host what is set to become the first rooftop film festival in South East Asia — “Pattaya Rooftop Film Fest 2012.”  This special event is in honour of the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Thailand and Germany.  Selected renowned German films will be displayed at the hotel’s rooftop lounge during February and March 2012.

The opening ceremony & press conference will be held on Friday 3rd February, 2012, at the Sunset Lounge of dusitD2 baraquda pattaya.  VIPs, including  Mayor of Pattaya, Itthiphol Khunpuem and the director of Goethe-Institut, Dr. Norbert Spitz will attend.

Pattaya Rooftop Film Festival will be South East Asia’s first rooftop al fresco style movie experience.  The inaugural festival aims to help elevate the image of Pattaya City beyond its long-held reputation as being one of Asia’s prime nightlife destinations as well as to promote German Films to German speaking residents in Pattaya and also attract those who are interested in the German language & culture.

The festival is poised to become a highlight for cinema lovers on the Eastern Seaboard, not only due to the trendy setting on the beautiful rooftop lounge of the dusitD2 baraquda pattaya, but also because of the high quality programme of renowned contemporary German films.  Among the must-see films of this 9-week long festive are the acclaimed “Goodbye Lenin”, “Four Minutes” and “Run Lola Run”.

Michael Ganster, General Manager of dusitD2 baraquda pattaya said: “We look forward to seeing Pattaya as another well recognised film destination for those who have creative minds.  Our rooftop – Sunset lounge is a perfect venue for a one-of-a-kind movie experience, not just because it’s trendy and beautiful, but the venue itself also offers a sense of exclusivity.  You can be assured that this is going to be an outdoor movie experience to remember.”

The Pattaya Rooftop Film Festival starts Friday 3rd February and runs until Friday 2nd March 2012 on every Friday night.  No admission fee, guests can simply enjoy a selection of drink packages available on each night.
