"Human ideas are like flowers, the best ones grow wild. Festivals like this make a garden where we can pollinate like bees and spread exotic, courageous, unheard-of seeds far and wide."

-- DBC Pierre, writing in support of the seedling that is the inaugural KWRF.

Countdown to festival

"Let us sow the seeds of peace and kindness through literature and art. A festival where many people can come together to celebrate and share in the highest aspects of humanity. Then let us celebrate Kampot, the beautiful centre of so many artistic activities and so too, Cambodia with her ancient and wonderful cultural heritage.”

--Catherine Louise Geach (Founder, Kampot Traditional Music School for Orphaned and Disabled Children Khmer Cultural Development Institute, Cambodia)
