Veteran action star Steven Seagal, known for movies like “Under Siege”, “Above The Law” and “Hard To Kill” will be making a special appearance in Kuching, Sarawak this month for the 4th Asean International Film Festival and Awards (AIFFA).
Set to take place from 25th to 27th April 2019, Seagal will be joining local and international celebrities such as jazz queen Sheila Majid and former “Asia’s Got Talent” hosts Marc Nelson and Rovilson Fernandez as special guests at the 3-day film festival.
“He will be in town throughout the festival where he will also be meeting fans at the Old Courthouse on 27th April at 3pm,” said Sarawak Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah as quoted by Borneo Post.
Previous international superstars who have graced AIFFA include Jackie Chan, Michelle Yeoh, and Donnie Yen.
“This is one of the events which can promote Sarawak to the tourism and film industries and since Aiffa was held here in 2013, the festival has grown from strength to strength and established itself as one of the premier film festivals in the Asean region,” Datuk Abdul Karim added.
AIFFA is a biennial competition for filmmakers from 10 Asean countries, offering 17 categories covering all major aspects of the creative and technical areas of filmmaking.
