With many amazing scripts and stories submitted from 28 March until 24 April, indeed, it was tough and it took the judges many rounds of deliberations before we selected the Top 22 stories for the Born of the Galaxy Stars short film competition. We are delighted by the sheer number of participants in this round of the competition as we see your ideas and imaginations in awe and wonder – proving there’s a wealth of local storytelling potential and film talent.


We are excited to announce the 22 shortlisted candidates who will go forward in the exciting short film competition, ‘Borderless with Nightography’. Besides, we are proud to have such a vibrant and talented filmmaking community, and we can’t wait to see what you create next! The 22 emerging filmmakers will go on to the next phase of the competition, where they will receive the Galaxy S22 Ultra to bring their stories to life.


The final production will then be in the running to win an award in July at the Malaysia International Film Festival (MIFFest) opening ceremony; but for now, we are delighted to name our 22 shortlisted aspiring filmmakers!
