The Malaysian Film Festival celebrates the very best of Malaysian cinema here in Singapore at the Old Parliament House (the Arts House) for 3 days from 28th September to 30th September 2018 and will run in conjunction with the CausewayEXchange festival. We have the honor once again to have veteran Malaysian filmmaker, Mr Hassan Muthalib, who has been an integral part of the Malaysian film industry for the last 50 years, to curate this year’s lineup.
The festival will also feature panel discussions and talks by the directors of some of the featured films. This is where we encourage dialogue between Singaporeans and Malaysians about their respective film industries.
The Malaysian Film Festival in Singapore is organized by DMR Productions which also organizes CausewayExchange (CEX), an annual arts exchange festival between Singapore and Malaysia that provides a platform for creative industries from both Singapore and Malaysia to share their work, network and explore new possibilities. The festival has been going on for 8 years and has presented over 300 artists across all genres and has attracted an audience of over 35,000.
