A first-class honored graduate in English from Thammasat University and MA in journalism from Chulalongkorn University, Anchalee Chaiworaporn has spent her professional life in various disciplines, from being a social worker, a journalist, a full-time lecturer at Mahidol University, to a film critic and a film researcher. She started her journalistic career by reporting on social developmental news for a local alternative news agency and two English-language newspapers, Thailand Times and The Nation, before expanding to include the film and its related industry in 1994.

Despite the stagnant state of the Thai film industry, she kept on writing about Thai movies, which were considered “low-grade” by the public. Without any supports, she has, on a number of occasions, spent her personal savings to pursue her love of film. This included the trips to report on the annual international film events in Cannes and Berlin since 1995. Her passion was rewarded when she was commissioned to write for and contribute to the international film journal Variety in 1996.

AWARDS

In 1998, Anchalee was awarded a scholarship to further her second master degree in film studies at Southampton University in England where she met and studied with Pam Cook, one of the noted British film theorist. She completed her dissertation entitled “From Pan-Chineseness to Global Industry: the Transformation of John Woo's Works in Hollywood

Upon the return to home, she wrote her first Thai-language critic piece on Nonzee Nimibutr's Nang Nak. It won Thailand's 2000 Best ML Bunlua Thepphayasuwan Film Critic. In 2002, she was awarded another writing prize named Best MR Ayumongkol Article Writer, where she wrote the articles: The Ballad and Tragedy of Jandara, Nothing New in Postmodern Criticism, and John Woo and Post-Fordism.

In 2002-2004, Anchalee was granted two fellowships from Ford-supported Asian Scholarship Foundation and Nippon Foundation, to do research on women directors in South Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. She is now doing the same research on Singaporean and Thai women directors by her own savings.

With her both academic and industrial background in film, Anchalee has worked in different kinds of disciplines as follows:
