MAS launches film contest

Local college and university students will have a chance to showcase their talents in making short films by participating in Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Detik-detik MH short film competition.

The contest, launched yesterday, is aimed at providing a canvas for creative talents to express their personal interpretations of Malaysian hospitality on film.

MAS communications senior general manager Indira Nair said the grand prize winning entry will be broadcast on the MAS inflight entertainment system across its global network.

“Also, the four winning teams (including the first and second runners-up and People’s Choice Award) will receive three return economy air tickets,” she said. The grand prize winners will get three return tickets to any destination of their choice.

The first runner-up, second runner-up and a People’s Choice Award winner will receive return tickets to any Asean and domestic destination. The school of the winning team will receive an award plaque.

“There are some great stories out there and we look forward to sharing them with the world,” said Indira, who is one of the six competition judges. The others are Tourism Malaysia chairman Datuk Dr Victor Wee Eng Lye, TMI Malaysia chief executive officer George Aveling and film directors Tan Chui Mui, Liew Seng Tat and Bahir Yeusuff.

Indira said the competition will be posted on, adding that the closing date for entries is April 16.

Participants can register as individuals or in teams of up to three members. The short film entries can be in English, Bahasa Malaysia or Chinese.
