Programmer's Note: PBIFF Best Horror Film nominee THE FOREST is the first Thai-language feature from a Western filmmaker. British-born director Paul Spurrier shot the film in the rural Isaan region of north-eastern Thailand, the poorest region of the country. It largely uses the local Isaan dialect. Few films are shot in this region, and a number of the locations were captured on film for the first time. The story is based on the rural belief in the spirit world, with a cast mainly comprising local people.

The Phoenix Incident
BASED ON TRUE EVENTS. Thursday, March 13th, 1997 marks the date of the Phoenix Lights, the largest mass UFO sighting in US History. The night of the incident, four Phoenix residents vanished in the Estrella Mountain National Park, south of Phoenix. Glenn Lauder (28), Mitch Adams (29), Ryan Stone (27), and Jacob Reynolds (28) were reported missing to the Maricopa County Sheriff's office, becoming the longest unresolved missing persons case in Arizona history. Classified military documentation, pilot interviews and first-hand recovered video evidence exposes the military's engagement with extraterrestrial contact, and the collateral damage of four civilians. 17 years after the infamous Phoenix sightings, documentarian David Collins sets out to expose the cover-up behind the most visible UFO sighting in American history. Presenting never-before-seen recordings and material, the film presents incontrovertible evidence that the four men were victims of an extraterrestrial attack resulting from the US Air Force's direct engagement with unidentified craft over the Estrella Mountains. The combined footage, testimonials and the government's continued disinformation campaign are brought to light in this film that will leave you questioning everything you think you know about 'The Phoenix Incident'.
