101 THE THIRD PLACE has taken the winners of the short film contest 'My Third Place' to a study visit trip at famous Japanese TV stations and visit 'Third Places' in Japan, helping young Thai moviemakers gain skills and inspiration.

8-12 September 2018, Tokyo – Winners of a short film contest under the theme 'My Third Place at 101 The Third Place' have visited Fuji Television and NHK Studio Park – Japan's leading television stations – and famous 'Third Places' in Tokyo such as Daikanyama T-Site and La Kagu on a study trip by MQDC (Magnolias Quality Development Corporation Limited), a subsidiary of DTGO Corporation Limited and the developer of 101 The Third Place, where you can enjoy a good life every day.

Nicha Srisanguansakul, Senior Vice President at MQDC, said: "The 'My Third Place' short film contest by 101 The Third Place, a new third place for the people of Bangkok, got a strong response from students and enthusiasts of short films. With over 300 entries, we can see creativity and new perspectives that can open up future careers in film production. We focus on learning by doing, helping Thai youths enhance their skills. As part of their prize, the contest winners are getting to a study visit trip at Fuji TV and NHK Studio Park as well as to visit 'Third Places' in Tokyo. We want to give an opportunity to gain experience in TV production and to hear from experts as well as to visit Daikanyama T-Site and La Kagu, Tokyo's 'Third Places', with fashion boutiques, lifestyle shops, and cool working areas. We hope this activity will provide inspiration to create short films for national release."

A 'Third Place' is an environment where people meet beyond home (first place) and work (second place). Ray Oldenburg argued in his book The Great Good Place that third places make a crucial contribution to urban life.

Mr. Thabadee Nakmora, from Nacho Team, Bangkok University, with the winning short film 'The Real World', said: "I am delighted that our work won the director's attention and gave me the chance to join the trip, learning new skills from real-world experiences and gaining new perspectives. Thank you, 101 The Third Place."
