Next New Wave Competition

This award aims to not only discover new and emerging filmmaking talents in Malaysia, but pulling apart the words “Next”, “New” and “Wave” in the name of the award, we also hope to show unique and strong directorial voices; to encourage undertakings that are brave, sensitive and challenging... in order to continue on our search for our own voices in cinema...

Our current Jury members (out of 3 in total) for the Next New Wave Award are Mira Lesmana (Indonesia) and Liew Seng Tat (Malaysia).
