Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia 2010 in Malaysia
(October 01~03, 2010)

Producers of SSFFA 2010 in Malaysia

We are very privileged to be involved as Producers for “Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia 2010 in Malaysia.” Our involvement in this festival started with our first MasterClass for Scriptwriting at FINAS which took place in February 2009. Through four other classes we had since then, we discovered that Malaysia has a wealth of materials and stories to tell and share with the world. It is our aim to help the film industry to achieve global recognition.

Our lectures in Japan are managed by Pacific Voice Inc., the Official Organizers for “Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia,” (SSFF & Asia) a prestigious short film festival which celebrated its 12th anniversary this year. The strength of SSFF & Asia is that since 2004, its “Grand Prix” winner is eligible for an Oscar nomination in the following year. Every year, SSFF & Asia receives thousands of submissions worldwide out of which about 100 are selected for competition. The quality of these short films is of international level.

The opportunities to view short films of such quality are limited to individuals who get the chance to attend film festivals. One of our main objectives is to bring these quality short films to Malaysian filmmakers and students in the hope that together we will learn from these films and propel the level of short films in Malaysia to greater heights.

Last but not least, we would like to extend our appreciation and thanks to FINAS personnel especially the Main Secretariat who have shown us nothing but kindness and support in working together to make this festival a success.
