- +

Independent Thai comedy-drama "Tang Wong" has been nominated for the Glass Bear award (Gläserner Bär) for best children's film, which will be presented at the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival, Office of Contemporary Art and Culture director Chai Nakornchai said on Thursday. 

He said the movie was part of the We Love the King movie project to mark His Majesty the King's 84th birthday.

"Tang Wong" is about four boys who make wishes before a Bhudda statue and promise if their wishes come true they would perform a traditional tang wong dance, even though none of them know how to dance, nor are they in touch with Thai traditions.
