    About the BMW Shorties

    The BMW Shorties is a cultural initiative by BMW Group Malaysia to provide amateur film makers with a platform to express their creativity. This short film competition is a continuous effort to identify, cultivate and support emerging film talent in the country. Since its inception in December 2006, the BMW Shorties has received a total of 607 short film entries, many of which have gone on to screenings at prestigious international film festivals such as Cannes, New York, Rotterdam, Oberhausen, Rome, Clermont-Ferrand and more.

    In 2015, BMW Group Malaysia is proud to announce the return of Malaysia’s longest running and most prestigious short film competition for its 9th year. With the theme of “Change”, this year’s competition is aimed at challenging your creativity in communicating changes through the expression of a short film.

    The grand prize winner of the BMW Shorties short film competition will receive an RM 75,000 production grant. Recognition for film making talent will also be awarded in a line-up of supporting categories, including Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, Best Editing and Best Sound Design as well as the ever popular People’s Choice Award.

    Nominees of the Best Screenplay award meanwhile will also be awarded a Script Development Grant developed and sponsored by Red Films, which includes a RM 1,000 cash prize and script consultancy support from industry experts to develop a professional screenplay for their next project.

    About “Change”

    In this creative world, the only thing constant is change and the challenge for society is to be able to discern, adapt and evolve to the best of one’s ability.

    Communicating change can sometimes be hard, as it is to be accepted. These visions are hardly understood by anyone, other than the ones defining them. So how will you communicate change through the creative expression of a short film?

    The BMW Shorties is now open for entries and you have until the 2nd of November 2015 to submit your short film entry


    Judging this year’s competition is a line-up of experts from Malaysia’s film making industry, including five-time BMW Shorties veteran and commercial film maker Lina Tan; feature film producer Nandita Solomon; executive producer from Reservoir Production Ismail Kamarul; film director from Directors Think Tank Rajay Singh; and veteran film editor Affandi Jamaluddin.
