Producer
15 Malaysia
SeaShorts 2019 Closing Film

Pete Teo is an award-winning musician, actor, and filmmaker. His recent work include principal roles in the Hollywood blockbuster Ghost In The Shell as well as A Family Tour by Chinese director Ying Liang. He is currently co-producing and co-directing a feature film with Liew Seng Tat entitled The Girl With No Head.

“It is easy to forget how much Malaysia has changed in the decade since 15Malaysia was first released. The fear of speaking out publicly against political abuse and bigotry, so insidious in Old Malaysia, seemed to have dissipated in the so-called New one. To the extent that 15Malaysia contributed to this development, I am immensely proud of it. That these raw little political films continue to provoke even now speaks for the universal power of cinema and the talents of the filmmakers who made them. Thank you all for your voices.”

Animator Director
Special Focus: Animation Short Films by Roxlee

Roxlee is an animator, director, cartoonist, painter, and all-around rock star of Philippine cinema. First making his name with cult favourite comic strip Cesar Asar, he then made the foray into filmmaking where his influence is still most keenly felt today. His early works were done in Super 8mm film—divided between hand-drawn, scratchy works like The Great Smoke, and pixellated live-action pieces like Juan Gapang. Both are now considered classics of the independent film movement of the 1980s.
