Chicken Rice Mystery, Lesly and Kimmy on New Straits Times

Some really good quotes too.



“Short films are like poetry; beautiful and short. There were entries that tried to cram in as much information as possible within a short time. Directors need to give space to the audience to think,” he (Raymond Red) said.

Meanwhile, theatre regular Kimmy Kiew's Chicken Rice Mystery bagged the Best Actor Award.

"I am shocked. Honestly, there was no expectation to win anything tonight," said the Flower in the Pocket actress regarding her role as a desperate wife trying to please her husband.

"I felt for her character. She deceived her family for the sake of pleasing them. Most women are able to relate to such situation. She did it beautifully," said award winning-actress Ida Nerina, who was one of the judges.

Chicken Rice Mystery by Edmund Yeo and Sing in the Rain by Mahaletchumi Tavamany were selected for the Honourable Mention Award.

Both recipients will be heading off to the Rome International Film Festival in October as their reward.


Ah. Rome.
