Pesta Filem Kita was established by Projek Dialog with a simple aim: to use films to bring Malaysians together. We want to explore the power of story telling to forge a better understanding of the challenges that make Malaysia the unique nation it is.

Is 2020 truly a year of change and hope? Have we made enough progress? Are there still “blind spots” in this ambitious vision?

Join us in carving out new spaces for emerging voices as we march on into a new era of filmmaking and youthful ambitions.

Pesta Filem Kita 2020


This year we have a total of 7 grants to give out – 4 grants worth RM10,000 to West Malaysians, and 3 grants worth RM13,000 to East Malaysians.

Submit your short synopses, and wait for us to contact you! 15 shortlisted applicants will have the chance to pitch their ideas to our jury panel, after which 7 grantees will be chosen to receive the grants.

The chosen grantees will have the opportunity to screen their films in our festival, and be featured on our YouTube channel after a year.
