We are proud to share the achievement of Mary Grace Liew, our Assistant lecturer from the Faculty of Cinematic Arts (FCA) for clinching the Grand Prize for the ‘Born of the Galaxy Stars’ Short Film Competition at the Malaysia International Film Festival (MIFFest) on 10th July 2022. Mary won the ‘Best Short Film’ prize with a film that she wrote and directed entitled “Where Time Stood Still” and received a trophy at the MIFFest’s Opening Ceremony held at Pavilion KL. The film was also supported by two other FCA staff namely Eunice Alexander as the Cinematographer and Chan Teik Quan as the Production Designer. All three of them are MMU’s Permata Dunia.

She attended the MIFFest’s Malaysia Golden Global Night at Istana Budaya together with MMU alumni and students. MIFFest is a public exhibition to showcase international and local films in Malaysia and the filmmakers submitted their pieces in two categories namely MIFFest Project Market 2022 (MPM) and ‘Born of the Galaxy Stars’ Short Film Competition.
