Six Senses Yao Noi Film Festival, Thailand
Edgy movies served on the rocks? That's what's on the menu this December at luxury Thai hideaway Six Senses Yao Noi's inaugural film festival, curated by indie darling Tilda Swinton and writer/director Apichatpong Weerasethakul, winner of the 2010 Palme d'Or.
Movies by emerging filmmakers will be screened at night among the limestone cliffs of dramatic Phang Nga Bay. And if the stars overhead aren't enough for you, Swinton and Weerasethakul will be joined by art and fashion-world luminaries such as Waris Ahluwalia, Jefferson Hack, and Olympia Le-Tan. Book one of the 56 villas with private pools, fresh from a refurb, and prepare to bask in the glow.
