Sok Sothun receives Asean Award

LtoR: Sok Sothun, Kulikar Sotho, Nick Ray
Sok Sothun wins Best Supporting Actor at the Asean International Film Festival & Awards 2015 in Malaysia to once again highlight the Cambodian film The Last Reel on the international stage. The veteran actor scooped the Best Supporting Actor award at AIFFA2015 for his portrayal of Vichea in the movie, the directorial debut of Kulikar Sotho. The Cambodia team enjoyed a star-studded Gala Dinner at the Borneo Convention Centre, Kuching, together with celebrity guests Jackie Chan and Michelle Yeoh. Director Kulikar Sotho and Actor Ros Mony were on hand to accept the award on behalf of Sok Sothun. The film was also nominated for two other awards, Best Supporting Actress (Dy Saveth) and Best Editing (Katie Flaxman). A big thank you goes out to the Sarawak Government and the Ministry of Tourism for the generous invitation to join AIFFA 2015 in Kuching and the chance to bring The Last Reel to a wider Asean audience. More recognition for the resurgent Cambodian film industry!
