The Malaysian delegation to MIPCOM this year, led by His Excellency Dato’ Sri Kamaruddin Siaraf, Secretary General of the Malaysian Ministry of Information, Communications and Culture, comprises of more than 40 strong Malaysian content companies consisting of broadcasters, distributors, feature film, television and animation producers, with 200 new programmes on offer for distribution and acquisition—double the number of completed programmes compared to last year.

Some of the featured new programmes to be announced in MIPCOM for the first time will include Animasia Studio’s Bola Kampung The Movie, Inspidea’s Akis, Giggle Garage’s Boeing The Play Ranger, and Funcel’s Satria: The Warriors of 7 Elements.

H.E. Dato’ Sri Kamaruddin Siaraf, said, “Since the Malaysian Government has identified the Creative Content Industry as a high impact economic growth area to its GDP, the commitment and support from the Government and financial institutes have gradually risen on an annual basis. Creative Malaysia has certainly proven to the world that its creative economy and ecosystem have one of the best synergies to accelerate growth in content development, which is complemented by various funding and incentives, leading-edge studio facilities, strong creative talents, culturally-adapt multi-racial society, supportive government and a competitive economy.”
