Burned out on big-city film festivals? Then hop a flight to Phuket, Thailand, for Film on the Rocks (December 16–20), a new showcase for art and film, curated by Tilda Swinton (left) and the Thai director-producer Apichatpong Weerasethakul, who nabbed the Palme d’Or at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. Held at the Six Senses Yao Noi resort, the event promises work from emerging filmmakers, with an emphasis on the environment—both in the selections and in the setting in which they’ll be shown: a giant outdoor screen on the rocks of Phang Nga Bay.
