The ASEAN International Film Festival And Awards furthers the art and craft of ASEAN filmmaking by inspiring and championing the work of screenwriters, filmmakers and all artistes who use the language of film to tell a story.

Our films help promote our culture, tradition and heritage towards united ASEAN.

AIFFA is a platform to promote ASEAN films to the international market. We facilitate collaborations and networking within the ASEAN film industry and provide business opportunities for film distributors and exihibitors (Meetings, Incentives, Conferencing, Exhibitions).

Another objective of AIFFA is to attract tourism and filmakers to Malaysia.

The AIFFA jury will at its own discretion select the films for the AIFFA Awards.

If a film is shortlisted for any of the AIFFA Awards, AIFFA will send an official letter during the first half of March 2017 and will advise of further requirements and next steps.

AIFFA hereby reserves the first right to announce the list of films included in its final line-up. All those associated with the film selected shall in no case, prior to the announcement by AIFFA, publicly confirm that the film is part of AIFFA.

AIFFA’s full screening programme will be announced by the end of March 2017.

AIFFA has the right to use, display, create still images and even recut all entries for private and public screenings, publicity material and anything deemed relevant to the media.

If a film has not been selected, AIFFA will inform the submitter by letter within one week of the announcement of the AIFFA screening programme.

Once a film is selected, the submitter will not be able to withdraw or change the Premiere status of the film at any given time before it is screened at AIFFA.

Only films with Malaysian National Censorship Board rating will be screened in public during the festival. AIFFA will be responsible for obtaining the LPF rating approval. If a film is accepted as a Finalist but if it does not meet the Censorship Board ratings, it will only be available for viewing, without discrimination, by the jury and will not be publicly screened.

Screenings & Scheduling: Selected films will be screened up to two times to AIFFA’s public audiences.
