Film Arts in Thailand – initial comments

Some initial responses regarding:

Dear Joachim,

Thank you so much for sharing your field research with me. You’ve captured the overall picture of the independent filmmaking scene in Thailand nicely. Congratulations!

(By the way, my film “Railway Sleepers” is going to Berlinale this coming February, 2017. I would be great if you can see it!)

Dear Joachim,

Thanks very much for sending me the link. It is a nice summary of the scene that needs to be expanded.

Hey Joachim!

Glad to hear from you and that your research has yielded a result now. Congratulations!
It looks like an interesting piece. I will read through it.
By the way, I’m in Berlin this week. Would you like to meet up for a coffee somewhere?
Are you in Berlin or Potsdam?


Dear Joachim,

Thank you very much for the links and I will forward to my colleagues in Thailand. Now, I live in Berlin for doctoral research at FU. Hope to have a cup of coffee with you.

Best Regards,
