Spotlight on Utain Boonarana + Gay rights in Thailand + My Ride, the series!

A recent casting news for a BL drama series in Thailand is creating plenty of buzz. You see, this is no ordinary series.

Written by Utain Boonarana (or Doctor Patrick Rangsimant, Neurologist), it is a trailblazer of sorts. While most BL stories adapted into TV series are written by female writers, My Ride I Love You, is created by a man.

Interview with Adisorn Hophrae & Piyacha Thongsuk about the short film ‘You Had Me at Hello’

What would happen if Adisorn Hophrae, Piyacha Thongsuk, and the Capture Production team decided to make films full-time? Lucky for us BL lovers! (or any movie lovers for that matter).

Anusorn Soisa-ngim talks about Present Perfect, 2 Moons 2 The Series, actors and more!

About a week ago, it was announced that Soisa-ngim will take charge of the 2 Moons 2 The Series.

Josh Kim Talks about his film “How to Win at Checkers (Every Time)”

I guess even Thais themselves have recognized his passion and dedication as a filmmaker when they chose his movie to be the country’s official entry to the Academy Awards Best Foreign Film category.
