ActionFest 2011: Awards for Bangkok Knockout, Sahamongkol's Sia Jiang

ActionFest was knocked out by the stunt extravaganza Bangkok Knockout (โคตรสู้ โคตรโส, Koht Soo Koht Soh).

The second annual ActionFest wrapped up over the weekend in Asheville, North Carolina, with an award for best stuntwork going to Panna Rittikrai's Bangkok Knockout, specifically for a massive sequence that gets the entire cast in the frame fighting each other in a battle royale. And if that's one I'm thinking of, it is a pretty awesome scene.

ActionFest also honored veteran producer Somsak "Sia Jiang" Techaratanaprasert (สมศักดิ์ เตชะรัตนประเสริฐ). The chief executive of Sahamongkol Film International, which has been behind such action-cult favorites as Ong-Bak, Chocolate and a dozen or so others, was named Producer of the Year.

TwitchFilm.com has the lowdown on all the awards, which includes the lifetime achievement award for stunt hero Buddy Joe Hooker.
