MSFF is the first ever virtual Malaysian Student Film Festival scheduled for a livestream showcase in June 2021. For the past years, many Malaysian student societies in universities all over the UK (and Ireland) have participated in Malaysian Night, a theatrical production celebrating traditional cultural art forms such as dance and music. This year, students will have the chance to showcase 15 - 40 minute films in our virtual event. Varying awards judged by external experts in the film and theatre industry will be celebrated on the last day of the festival. It is MSFF’s hope to not only give students a chance to translate traditional MNights into a different medium, but also to let these films be a portfolio of well-made student films relating to Malaysian culture.

by London School of Economics Students’ Union Malaysia Club
Logline: LSE Malaysian Society presents a short film following four friends as they reminisce about the experience they’ve had during the coronavirus pandemic.
Adam and his friends Bella, Christine and Daniel have all finally managed to get together on zoom and hangout as friends after so long. The lockdown since March has made it hard for them to plan an online meet-up since half the group is in Malaysia and the other half, London. The four use the call to catch up and dive into their own stories about how the lockdown has been for them. With each story bringing laughter and showing that not much has actually changed, it seems that only Adam is one to disagree.
