Samsung Malaysia Electronics held an event and a short film competition called Born of the Galaxy Stars to commemorate the launch of the new Galaxy S22 series. The Malaysia International Film Festival (MIFFest) endorsed this competition, which sought 22 aspiring filmmakers from different backgrounds to produce their films using the Galaxy S22 Series.

The competition allowed new and aspiring directors to overcome the barriers of traditional filmmaking by redefining the filmmaking experience and putting it all into one ultimate smartphone series, thanks to the library of camera features available on the Galaxy S22 Series.

The event’s highlight was Nightography Film Teasers, which featured the efforts of four homegrown directors who created four short films filmed completely on the Galaxy S22 Series. The amazing short films covered topics of Fashion, Fitness, Romance, and Music to honour the craft and provide inspiration for aspiring filmmakers during an extensive Q&A session that followed.

The Galaxy Series has a reputation for pushing the boundaries with cutting-edge mobile technology, and the Galaxy S22 Series delivered on that promise with its highly dynamic cameras, AI-powered processing, and colourful displays that go above and beyond the typical mobile experience. Guests were also given a hands-on session in the Nightography Room, where a theatre hall was transformed into an immersive multi-purpose experiential room, where they can not only test the smartphone but also be among the first to feel the complete Galaxy S22 Series experience.
