Brillante Mendoza Head Jury at 2nd Malaysia Film Festival

Early last year at Malaysia International Film Festival’s first edition, Brillante Mendoza won the best director award with his film “Ma Rosa” “Mendoza’s gritty, powerful socially-conscious films are proof that cinema can play a vital role in illuminating and eliminating the social ills that plague our modern societies,” said Joanne Goh, MD of MIFFest.

Other jurors at the second edition will include directors Dain Iskandar Said (Interchange”), Tran Anh Hung (“Scent of the Green Papaya,” “Norwegian Wood”), Patrick Tam (“After This Our Exile”), actor-producer Lee Lieh (“Jump Ashin!,” “Monga”),  actor-writer-director, Suhasini Maniratnam (Bandhana, Suprabhata”). and Naomi Kawase (Japan)
