BMW Shorties is a cultural initiative by BMW Group Malaysia to provide amateur filmmakers with a platform to express their creativity. This short film competition is a continuous effort to identify, cultivate and support emerging film talents in the country. Since its inception in December 2006, the BMW Shorties has received a total of 540 short film entries, many of which have gone on to screenings at prestigious international film festivals such as Cannes, New York, Rotterdam, Oberhausen, Rome, Clermont-Ferrand and more. In 2014, BMW Group Malaysia is proud to announce the return of Malaysia’s longest running and most prestigious short film competition for its 8th BMW Shorties is asking you to challenge your story telling abilities by exploring the meaning of connections which we have to one another, to our nation or to our world, through your own original perspectives.
The theme of “Connections” is derived from BMW ConnectedDrive philosophy, which represents the intelligent linking of vehicle, driver and the outside world in a way which ensures that you are connected with the information and services which lets you make the most of a driving experience.
