Lee Chatametikool gets editing nod in 4th Asian Film Awards
No Thai films are nominated for the 4th Asian Film Awards.
Not sure why.
But Thailand is still represented, with film editor Lee Chatametikool nominated for best editing for Karaoke by Malaysian director Chris Chong Chan Fui, who also had Tropical Malady lensman Jarin Pengpanitch as cinematographer and post-production work done at Technicolor Thailand.
The Hong Kong-Chinese martial-arts drama Bodyguards and Assassins and the South Korean thriller Mother lead the AFA nominees with six nods each, including best film. The controversial Chinese drama City of Life and Death has four. Other best-film nominees are Lola by Brillante Mendoza from the Philippines, No Puedo Vivir Sin Ti from Taiwan and Parade from Japan.

The awards will be presented on March 22 in Hong Kong.
