Liew Seng Tat was born in Jinjang. He emerged as a young filmmaker with a unique comedic voice soon after he graduated from the Multimedia University, where he majored in 3D Animation. His first live action short film ‘Bread Skin With Strawberry Jam’ won the top prize at the 8th Malaysian Video Awards in 2003. His second short film ‘Not Cool’ won the same award a year later. His 2007 debut feature ‘Flower In My Pocket’ film then swept multiple awards and prizes in numerous international film festivals including Busan, Rotterdam, Fribourg and Pesaro. Armed with a child-like sensibility that reveals deeper truths than his simple stories let on, Seng Tat is regarded as one of the most promising filmmaking talents in Malaysia. He is currently working on his second feature film – ‘In What City Does It Live?’ – a script he developed during his time as resident filmmaker at the Cinefondation Cannes Residency in France in 2008/9.
