Floating lanterns are launched into the air each year as part of Yi Peng, a festival that coincides with the Loy Krathong Festival in Thailand. This year’s event took place on November 11 and Sony filmmaker Brandon Li was there to document it firsthand. He created this video that captures the magical moments (and also the challenges) he experienced during his trip.

As Li was making his vlog, several members of the Alpha Imaging Collective and Sony Artisan Ira Block were also in Thailand and had the opportunity to attend the festivals. See some of what they've captured of the lanterns below, and catch the rest by following #AICdoesThailand.
