Award-winning Malaysian film Abang Adik has recently picked up 3 more awards to add to its collection.  At the Sea Okinawa Pan-Pacific International Film Festival, Abang Adik, the first feature film of Perak-born director Jin Ong, won Best Lead Performance, Jury Award and Audience Award, beating 8 other films in the competition division.

The awards were given by a jury committee of experts from Japan and other countries and are the seventh international film festival win for Abang Adik this year.

“I didn’t expect the Japanese to love this film,” said the 48-year-old veteran producer of the Malaysian Chinese entertainment industry.

“I’m happy to receive the audience choice award because it’s quite difficult to win it, you don’t really know what to expect from the audience.”

“During the Q and A, a member of the audience was crying as she kept asking questions,” said Ong, adding that her reaction affected him profoundly.

Abang Adik is scheduled for release in Malaysia on December 14 with its premiere in Taiwan on December 1 and Hong Kong on December 7, respectively.
