[Upcoming Event] Malaysia International Film Festival (MIFFest) & Malaysia Golden Global Awards (MGGA)

Kuala Lumpur, February 2018 – Malaysia International Film Festival (MIFFest) and Malaysia Golden Global Awards (MGGA) is making a comeback this year with “Humanity” as the main theme and key message.

The 2nd MIFFest will run from 25th February 2018 to 2nd March 2018, while the 2nd MGGA is set for 3rd March 2018. A new design concept was created to represent the 2 faces of humanity, which are ‘Despair’ and ‘Hope’.



Hope is a common theme in films, as hope means to bring joy and excitement that is arguably the most basic desire people long for. It is the most life-affirming aspect that people share, a common hope. At the other end of the spectrum is Despair; all our lives are touched by moments of loss, grief, tragedies and despair. Films educate everyone on how to handle these moments of extreme loss and despair, and how to move on from these moments with empathy and fortitude.

These two elements will be presented in all the movies chosen to be displayed at the MIFFest. Film enthusiasts can look forward to the film festival as forums and workshops will be conducted by renowned filmmakers at MIFFest.

To discover talents of the creative arts, cinematic and entertainment industry, 2nd MIFFest is bringing in a new category: ‘Southeast Asian Film Focus’. This will open the doors for filmmakers from Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam and Singapore to showcase their films in the film festival.

MIFFest created ‘Southeast Asian Film Focus’ to highlight the diversity of cinematic creation and the richness of films in Southeast Asia, as well as to stimulate the creativity of Southeast Asian filmmakers. 




With the support of National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (FINAS) and Tourism Malaysia, MIFFest will showcase 20 local and international films from around the world. Whereas MGGA will have 2 new award categories this year; ‘Best Supporting Actor‘ and ‘Best Supporting Actress’ in addition to recognizing the achievements of 8 different categories as previous year; ‘Best Actor’, ‘Best Actress’, ‘Best Director’, ‘Best New Director’, ‘Best Film’, ‘Best Screenplay’, ‘Best Cinematography’ and ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’. Winning recipients are rewarded based on their commitment to humanitarian efforts and selfless contributions to improve the lives of others.

“These events celebrate uniqueness and champion humanity. To recognize and honour human excellence through films that inspire, enlighten and uplift the human spirit. MIFFest and MGGA help to promote tourism and diversity of Malaysian arts and cultures to the global audience, it also aims to strengthen Malaysia’s position as a major leading creative hub of film and cinema within the ASEAN region”, proudly said Joanne Goh, Chairman of MIFFest and MGGA.

Everyone knows of Romeo & Juliet as their names tease thoughts of young star-crossed lovers and their tragic end. Trapped by the feud between their families--the Montagues and the Capulets--their lives seem to tumble into an inevitable and ill-fated tragedy. The apparent “good” coming out of that “misadventured” is that they “bury their parents’ strife”.

KLSP’s unique 100-minute abridgment of this Shakespeare’s play will peel back the layers, and unveil some issues that the tale may be a metaphor of. KLSP will keep its characteristic format of performing the key scenes in Shakespeare’s words and piecing the parts together into a coherent whole with a narrative glue in contemporary English (and with a sprinkling of our local mother tongues). It is during this narration that certain now-exotic words are explained, overlooked issues underscored, questioned raised, etc.

Always innovating, KLSP in its 2017 production of Shakespeare Demystified: Macbeth made music central in its performance. This time, the company will incorporate in SD:R&J not just music but also a more physical performance, driven by the practices and philosophy of physical theatre.   



Underscoring KLSP’s educational mission--each performance will conclude with a question-and-answer session which allows students to inquire, make comments as they engage with the play and the actors. This Q&A is also a favourite part for students attending our performances.

To create this production, KLSP has gathered a youthful cast: Hana Nadira, Ali Alasri, Safia Hanifa, Ivan Chan and Phraveen Arikiah. Soon Heng will play the patriarchal roles. The production is directed by Lim Kien Lee.

KL Shakespeare Players and The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat will present Shakespeare Demystified: Romeo & Juliet from 24 - 29 April 2018 in Pentas 2, klpac; and 3 - 6 May 2018 in Stage 2, penangpac.


Ticket prices: for klpac RM55, RM45 (student-concession) and RM40 each for education groups of 40 and more. For penangpac: RM45, RM35 (student-concession) and RM30 each for education groups of 40 and more.


Extra day shows are available upon request by calling +6012-653-0987. For other inquiries call +603 4047 900 (klpac), +604 899 1722 / 2722 (penangpac) or +603 7880 7999 (ticketpro). Buy online at ticketpro.com.my.
