Red shirts push Subhanahongsa Awards to next month

Seeing how Sala Chalermkrung Royal Theatre, the venue for Sunday's Subhanahongsa Awards (รางวัลภาพยนตร์แห่งชาติ สุพรรณหงส์) by the Federation of National Film Associations of Thailand, is in the general neighborhood of a mass demonstration by shaven-headed red-shirted anti-government protesters, well it just wouldn't do to have young stars and starlets in their limos and gowns and tuxedos traipsing around and getting stuck in traffic.

So Sunday's presentation of the Thai film industry 's most prestigious awards has been postponed until sometime in April, says Film Business Asia, which got the news from Suvannee Chinchiewchan, FNFAT's vice president of international affairs.

No other venue for the awards could be found on short notice, she says.

I'm not sure what the rescheduled date is.

(Via Film Business Asia - nice scoop Stephen!)
