Ton Nithiwat’s feelings after Teacher’s Diary has been submitted  for the Academy Awards 2015 – the Best Foreign Language Film

Ton Nithiwat, Director of Teacher’s Diary said… “I am thrilled.  This is a great honor.   It’s a chance in a lifetime that a film I directed is being submitted to compete for the Academy Award.  It feels like I got a national team uniform on… I am running into the field carrying our flag.

I have to thanks GTH, p’Geng – Jira Malikul, Wanrudee Teem-ngarn and the cast, Bie-Sukrit Wisetkaew, Ploy Sherman and the kids, including others actors and actresses who helped made this film a success.  

Thanks the film committee for selecting Teacher’s Diary  to represent Thai Film at the Oscar.  I am very proud to be able to present a story of Thai people, specially from teachers’ view  points for people around the world to see and learn about us.”
