Screening of 'Behind the Sun' (Brazil)

The stark, tough Brazilian film 'Behind the Sun' ('Abril Despedacado'), directed by famed Director Walter Salles, moved the sizeable audience, including several Ambassadors, who attended the screening. The Brazilian 'Caipirinha' cocktail was much appreciated. In his speech, the Ambassador of Brazil HE Gilberto Fonseca-Guimarães de Moura briefly outlined the history of Brazilian Cinema.

The King of Thailand in World Focus

Now available in soft cover! Only Baht 270 for FCCT members

The FCCT's sell-out publishing success, The King of Thailand in World Focus, a 280-page collection of articles and images from the international press on the life and reign of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Rama IX, is now available in a new, popularly priced soft-cover edition. In addition to making for fascinating reading, the book is the only comprehensive reference work on the current reign as reported over the years by correspondents, journalists and photographers in magazines and newspapers around the world

This large-format, full-color book is identical to the hard-bound third edition which sold out late last year, but with a stiff, varnished art-card cover, and priced to be easy on the wallet. It's available through the FCCT office and at Asia Books around town for the cover price of only Baht 300. FCCT members can get a copy through the FCCT office only for just Baht 270, on presentation of your current membership card.

Don't miss out. Get your copy of this unique publication today!

Attending FCCT Programs

How do you keep up with all the FCCT programs?

Join FCCT and receive e-mails whenever new programs are added. Because news changes fast, FCCT sometimes schedules timely programs on short notice.

FCCT members receive e-mails with "late-breaking news" about programs.

For Correspondents Only?

The FCCT is not just for correspondents-in fact, most of our members are not news people.

A past FCCT president even came up with the slogan, "You don't have to be foreign and you don't have to be a correspondent". We are a very diverse club and welcome all.
