Thiti Sirithanakorn

Thiti Sirithanakorn works in the Science Communication Division, Office of Public Awareness of Science at the National Science Museum Thailand. By good fortune, he started working on the Science Film Festival last year and feels that science films can communicate complicated information in an easily understandable manner. Moreover, they inspire and cultivate imagination. When one sees the eyes of the audience at the screenings, once can see they enjoy and learn from the films and recognize the positive impact of this festival.
