MSFF is the first ever virtual Malaysian Student Film Festival scheduled for a livestream showcase in June 2021. For the past years, many Malaysian student societies in universities all over the UK (and Ireland) have participated in Malaysian Night, a theatrical production celebrating traditional cultural art forms such as dance and music. This year, students will have the chance to showcase 15 - 40 minute films in our virtual event. Varying awards judged by external experts in the film and theatre industry will be celebrated on the last day of the festival. It is MSFF’s hope to not only give students a chance to translate traditional MNights into a different medium, but also to let these films be a portfolio of well-made student films relating to Malaysian culture.
