Multi-award winning actor Bront Palarae is honoured to become the face of Malaysia’s very own international festival and award ceremony, MIFFEST and MGGA.
The 3rd edition of Malaysia International Film Festival (MIFFEST) and Malaysia Golden Global Awards (MGGA) is set to kick off in July, introducing Bront as the new ambassador who will be joining current ambassador Angelica Lee, an international award winning actress.
This is the first time that the 41-year-old actor has taken up the role of an ambassador in a film festival, and he is very proud and excited over his new role as he is able to share his journey in filmmaking.
“I’ve attended several film festivals outside of Malaysia, and every time I was asked if Malaysia has any international level festival, I’ll feel ashamed. But now, it seems that I will have my answers,” he told Harian Metro at a recent press conference.
“Such events can become a platform for local filmmakers to introduce and promote their works not only to local audience but also overseas. I am very proud that these programmes existed,” he continued.
Established in 2016, MIFFEST is a public exhibition to showcase various films from all over the world in Malaysia, while MGGA is an award event to give recognition to filmmakers across the globe for their achievements.
The 3rd MIFFEST will be held from 14th to 19th July 2019, while MGGA is set to be held at the Istana Budaya on the 20th July 2019.
