KUALA LUMPUR, 26 September 2018 - Aspiring filmmakers in Malaysia will have the opportunity to participate in #Alist5 Workshop and gain first-hand, invaluable insights by renowned directors and experts, Ho Yuhang (Malaysia), Dain Said (Malaysia) and Edward Delos Santos Cabagnot (Philippines).

In conjunction with its 5th Anniversary, Astro A-List (CH 456), home to critically acclaimed and award-winning films, is organizing a filmmaking workshop for all Malaysians and a video contest for university students.

The #Alist5 Workshop on 30 September 2018 at Taylor's University Lakeside Campus, will consist of two sessions:

Session 1 (10am - 1pm), titled How to be a filmmaker?', will be conducted by prolific Malaysian film directors Ho Yuhang and Dain Said. Ho Yuhang is best known for his work in Mrs. K (2016), which was nominated for Best Film at the 2017 Five Flavours Film Festival and Best Action Choreography at the 2016 Golden Horse Film Festival, while Dain Said is known for his work in Interchange (2016), a fantasy-thriller movie, which won Best Visual Effect at the 2018 Asia-Pacific Film Festival, Best Art Direction and Best Director at the 2017 Malaysian Film Festival; and was nominated for Best Film at the 2016 Five Flavours Film Festival and Locarno International Film Festival.

Session 2 (2pm - 6pm), titled Critical film studies', will explore the numerous methods of film-appreciation, and will be conducted by Edward Delos Santos Cabagnot, a film expert from De La Salle University, Philippines, who has been on the jury for a host of international film festivals, including the 2013 Amsterdam's IDFA International Documentary Festival, 2011 Berlinale's Forum and 2008 Busan International Film Festival.
