During the festival 35 body of works by photographers from Australia, Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Cambodia, India, South Korea, Myanmar, Germany, Italy and Poland are exhibited in the international section of this festival.

The 2014 Xishuangbanna Foto Festival is themed as “Another Side of the Water”, which will continue the clue of the motif “Water” of the first exhibition “A Great River”. If we look back to the context in the Book of Songs, the source of the sentence “Another side of the water”, we will interestingly discover that “water” has become a medium of separation for a long time, acting as a watershed between two kinds of reflecting spaces (simulation and reality) by making use of the leaping effect of literature. This cluster of exhibits always focus on the big context of making “water” as the subject of discussion, turn “water” into media and materials, and conduct presentation and discussion on three-tier spaces of implication of “Another Side of the Water” through exhibition.
