30 Malaysian-made short films will be streamed on Astro Go until 18th of September
From now to 18th September 2022, the BMW Shorties short film and digital content competition showcasing a collection of short films made from 2011 through to 2019, will be available for streaming on Astro Go.
Sashi Ambi, Head of Corporate Communications at BMW Group Malaysia said, “The BMW Shorties is a creative initiative by BMW Group Malaysia that discovers and supports local content creators, which has returned in 2022.”
“The program recognises visionary local talents in their creative career journeys which in turn, inspires us as a brand that shares these same values in the field of
innovation and creativity.”
“This collaboration with Astro is very timely, especially with the Merdeka and Hari Malaysia celebrations taking place, demonstrating that this Malaysian home-grown creative initiative is still a driving force in celebrating local talents and is an inspiration to all in the creative field here, sharing
the many talents Malaysia has to offer.” said Ambi.
Sharmin Parameswaran, Vice President of VOD/PPV International at Astro said, “As the leading content and entertainment company in Malaysia, we strongly believe in delivering content and stories that uniquely resonate with our local landscape.”
“As we approach this very significant time of the year together as Malaysians, we are delighted to be able to work with the BMW Shorties to showcase the works of talented local filmmakers and digital content creators to a wider Malaysian audience. In a way, it is a celebration of our heritage, as we showcase these stories, crafted through the lens of our shared yet diverse experience as a nation.”
