Film works

As a film actor, his local debut was as part of the supporting cast for Pesona Pictures’ “Mimpi Moon”, which was followed by his role as the “Interpreter” in the Hollywood movie “Anna and the King”. He played his first romantic lead in Serangkai Filem’s “Soal Hati”, and was honoured with a Best Actor award for his portrayal of “Daniel” at the Anugerah Skrin Panca Delima Awards, 2000. He has since filmed “Soalnya Siapa?”, a continuation of the story.

His screen debut as a writer and director, as well as lead actor, manifested in “Buli”, a film produced by Grand Brilliance. About being a technical savaunt and a social misfit in a corporate and highly socialised world, this film marks the expression of Afdlin’s creativity and insight into storytelling and film-making. During the 2004 Malaysian Film Festival he was awarded Most Promising New Director, Best Screenplay and Best Original Story for this work. Other movies since then include “Gila-Gila Pengantin Remaja”, “Pontianak”, “Biar Betul”, “Baik Punya Cilok”, and “Buli Balik”. Recently, he directed as well as acted in a Thai film, "Brave".

Afdlin is also involved in various direct-to-VCD projects, the latest being “Kelibat”, a profit-sharing venture between the actors involved and Vision Works. For this Afdlin wrote, directed and acted, and it was released April 2004.
