CineMalaysia is a festival of Malaysian films in which audiences can find the films they want.
In order to deliver the current situation of Malaysian cinema, with its versatile charms, to Japanese audiences, our lineup was selected from internationally acclaimed art-house films and commercial films which are popular in Malaysia now. There include comedy, action, youth films, romance, and drama.
Our feature screening “Japan Seen by Malaysians, Malaysia Seen by Japanese” introduces recent and premiering films by directors from Malaysia and Japan, shedding light on filmmakers from both countries who have recently improved their mutual relationships.
In addition, the directors and casts of the main films will visit Japan and join our Q & A sessions after the screenings. Small symposiums and talks will also be held in order to get acquainted with Malaysia through film. Also, live performances by Malaysian musicians are scheduled. Why don’t you join us to appreciate the charms of Malaysia, and its interweaving of races, cultures, and religions?
