BRUNEI Darussalam will be represented by three aspiring film-makers following their entry into Japan’s annual Asian International Children’s Film Festival next week.
Hailing from Pehin Datu Seri Maharaja Secondary School, the young gentlemen will join their peers from a number of Asian nations as they showcase their less-than-three-minute clip centred upon this year’s ‘My Dream’ theme.
With leeway that allows for genre and format, the Bruneian clip features the participants’ ambitions towards becoming a well-known football player that answers a number of main talking points recommended by the organisers.
As part of the JENESYS 2.0 programme that was announced by Japan’s Prime Minister in 2013, the festival aims not to simply foster closer ties between youths but also highlight their talents.
Personnel from the Ministry of Education as well as family and friends sent the team off at the Brunei International Airport.
