DIRECTOR'S BIOGRAPHY

Remi M Sali has more than 20 years of experience creating long and short works, ranging from music videos to movie features. He is known for pushing boundaries when creating Malay content. His portrayal of Malays on-screen has universal appeal, and his works provide Malays with a rare platform to showcase their individuality rarely seen on mainstream media.

Pre-millennium, he passionately contributed to the budding Singapore film scene together with his long-time collaborator Dzul Sungit. Their short film 'eddy' was Special Jury Prize co-winner at Singapore International Film Festival 1994. They proceeded to win the Best Director Award for their short film 'INfluence' a year later. In 1998, they made their first feature movie 'OffCentre’, an adaptation of the acclaimed play from one of Singapore's most successful theatre companies, The Necessary Stage.

Remi was an award-winning Trailer Producer with Singapore's national broadcaster before he returned to his first love: directing. Effectively bilingual in English and Malay, he has directed popular dramas, telemovies, info-ed programmes and art series for local television. He was a nominee for Best Director Award at Pesta Perdana 2015 for the telemovie ‘Abah’.

His experience in the industry was evident when he was invited to be one of the mentors for ‘AKSI!’. The joint production between Singapore Mediacorp Suria and Radio Television Brunei featured him leading a team of aspiring film-makers to produce a short film.

Remi's fervour for telling inclusive stories of race, language and religion resonates in his latest independent films - Konpaku (2019) and Not My Mother's Baking (2020).
