THE BMW SHORTIES

The BMW Shorties is back for its 16th year running, where emerging Malaysian filmmakers and digital content creators are free to express their creativity. Over one thousand short film entries have been submitted since we began in December 2006, many of which have been screened at prestigious international film festivals such as Cannes, New York, Rotterdam, Oberhausen, Rome, Clermont-Ferrand and more!

Our grand prize winner this year will receive RM 80,000 in production grant. Recognition for filmmaking talent will also be awarded in a prestigious line-up of supporting categories. BMW Shorties 2022 is now open for entries! You have until 28th October 2022 at 6:00PM to RE:IMAGINE your storytelling and submit your short film.
