Wow, this is amazing! 

Our local film, Fly by Night made its debut on the global streaming platform, Netflix, on 21st August 2019 after gaining rave reviews in International film festivals, reported Malay Mail.

Even though the crime thriller didn’t enjoy commercial success in Malaysia, it still made it into seven international film festivals including the ones mentioned below:

  • Santa Barbara International Film Festival 
  • New York Asian Film Festival 
  • Macau International Film Festival & Awards 
  • Busan International Film Festival

Making it into one international film festival is already ground-breaking, so reaching seven international film festivals is just astonishing.

Zahir told Malay Mail,

“I’m so stoked to be able to share Fly by Night with Malaysians. The cast and crew put in their best, so again hats off to them. For those who watched Fly by Night and want to watch it again, as well as those that missed the chance to catch it in cinemas, here it is, right in your living room.”

The critically acclaimed movie is about two brothers who both have a second job as taxi drivers whose scheme to “extort a wealthy passenger” goes horribly wrong. Bront Palarae, who played Inspector Kamal, said that he was happy that film has made onto Netflix.

He was quoted as saying,

“It’s a story that we wanted to share with the world. We had a good run at various film festivals and can’t wait to see the response of audiences from different parts of the world.

“And to the Malaysians who missed our theatrical run earlier this year, this is a perfect opportunity to catch the film.”
