Awards were presented to winners of the Amazing Thailand Film Challenge, in which 56 pairs of film-makers were given $1,000 and ground transport and challenged to make a film in seven days.
The new talent / best film prize went to “Man,” by Charlotte Rabate and Chananun Chotrungroj, while the equivalent prize for professional film-makers went to “Return of the Golden Lily,” by Takashi Hirose and Magnus Orn Thors.
Other awards were made to invited guests, including Chinese actress Bai Ling (pictured, right), and to local celebrities Rhatha Phongam and Sonia Couling. Others in attendance included Gary Daniels and Spain’s Catalina Sandino Moreno.
The festival, now in its second year, is intended to promote Thailand as a destination for international film-makers. It ran 20-29 April, 2014.
