Premier film festival
The ASEAN International Film Festival And Awards (AIFFA) is a premier film festival, which made its debut in 2013. Held in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia, the biennial film festival celebrates the best of films around the ASEAN region. AIFFA 2013 saw more than 200 international personalities including Hollywood and Bollywood producers and directors, ASEAN film stars and those involved in the industry making a beeline to Kuching to ignite the ASEAN film spirit.
More than 300 media exposures throughout AIFFA 2013, valued at more than USD20 million, made its presence felt among the ASEAN public. Come 9 April 2015, a buzz of movie magic will be showcased in Kuching at the AIFFA 2015. It begins with the Tribal Welcome Nite, the unique ‘Movies In The Rainforest’ (a 12 hour movie marathon screened at the Sarawak Cultural Village), an enterprising ASEAN Film Mart for Business to Business networking and seminars for those who want to know more about the latest in film technology. It is also a great opportunity to network among the film fraternity.
The three day event culminates in the glamorous Gala Nite finale where international filmmakers gather to witness the best of the best film productions in the region. The films are judged by an ASEAN Jury and twelve categories of awards are presented. The spectacular show ends with the Spirit of ASEAN Award…a film that portrays the best of ASEAN people, culture and lifestyle. Another interesting award is the Lifetime Achievement Award, presented to an ASEAN film personality who has broken the international barrier.
