Punna Place on Nimmanhaemin Soi 6 is adding to its already bright reputation as a great place to hang out with a new Wine Factory shop there offering a happy 3 hours of sorts, it was also the site of a wine and food party. A new delivery service was introduced and many of its providers were on hand to offer food, treats and other items. The event was catered by Pasta Paradise, always delicious and Vut Borisuth was on hand offering wines from his wonderful WineDirect stock.
The party filled the place out although the area is already hopping with the new wine shop as well as drinks on the terrace and live music. Many locals and residents popped in to hear about the new delivery service as well as try some of the wines with many vowing to come back to the Wine Factory for a try of their 3 hour happy hour session from 6:30.

RoadRunner Food Delivery launched their new service at the party as well.

2nd Annual Documentary Arts Festival

Visitors view photos of the political and social events around South East Asia as documented by women, including in Thailand.

By Shana Kongmun
Documentary Arts Asia held their second annual and very successful Documentary Arts Festival from February 8-14. The event featured free film screenings at Chiang Mai University Art Center and exhibitions as well as hands on workshops and portfolio reviews, all celebrating the art of documentary both in Asia and internationally.
The opening and closing parties were held at the CMU Art Center and the documentary photos of contributing artists filled the walls. Additionally there were portfolio works of artists. The gritty realism of many of the photos, documenting war and famine around the world were a stark reminder of all that goes on outside our charming town.
This festival included the Asian Women Photographers Showcase curated by Yumi Goto, showcasing women photographers who turned their cameras to cover a broad range of subjects from themselves to women’s issues and the consequences of politics and history of their countries. Greenpeace was also on and to offer the exhibition “Through a photographer’s lens - the environment: problems and solutions”. Stunning and sometimes terrifying photos of climate issues in South East Asia. .’Kashmir’ was also on display at the CMU Art center and was a collaboration between Emaho Magazine and Documentary Arts Asia showcasing contemporary work by Kashmiri photojournalists, a region largely unseen by the outside world.
All in all a stunning festival and one that everyone should anticipate for next year.

Students and visitors pour of the many books on display.

The festival also featured 5 documentary films that were shown
at the CMU Art Center theater.
