A scene from the Award winning “Guest Room”

Recently, our very own BluBricks instructor Iskandar Zulkarnain won an award for the Best Actor in an International Short Film contest.

The competition, The “who am i” Short film Contest, received entries from all over the Chinese Speaking world, with Iskandar’s piece “Guest Room” being the only English entry,  by special dispensation. The piece, helmed by Danny Chong, also won best film.

This story of redemption and self discovery also features theatre and film legend Mano Maniam, who shares the award with young up and comer Iskandar.

“I was thrilled to discover I won against such competition.” Said Iskandar, cordially known as Iski, “To have gained such an achievement is proof that i am learning, and teaching the best path for my acting.”

What’s next for Iski? “I will be competing in the Asian Argentine Tango Championship in Tokyo, and I have several film and TV offers, in addition to teaching at BluBricks.”

Another short film this multi talented star was involved in, “When?” also garnered a 2nd prize in the MyHarapan HOPE film festival.
