The Open Forum of Cambodia (OFC) was formed in 1994 and is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to promote dialogue in Cambodian society.

It provided the first e-mail service in the country in 1994 to encourage dialogue and address social concerns. Its programme includes paper-based publications, in Khmer and English which according to its website included until January 2007 the editorialized weekly overview of all local newspapers reflecting the diverse points of views on political and social issues; electronic communication." It also promoted its website, and advocacy through research. OFC has also played an important role in the localisation of Free Software into the Khmer language.

OFC's Nobert Klein edited a weekly press review of the Cambodian language press in English for 10 years. It was a 16-page publication. OFC has faced a funding crunch in recent months.
