Dayak Iban language movies, may still be at the infant stage but it will not

stop BFG Media and Entertaiment Production Sdn Bhd to test the global market by

promoting it latest Dayak Iban language action flick "Dunya Gangster" through

the internet soon.

Its managing director, Museh Amba said although the company was a newcomer

in the film industry, it was planning a publicity blitz through the internet

either via Facebook, Twitter, Ebay or the official website.

"Everywhere in the world, people talk about marketing their products via

online. I come to know a few African film production houses promoting their

culture-based films on the internet and it has sparked my interest ever since,

and I was thinking to myself how good it would be if Dayak films could have the

same exposure," he said in a statement here today.

"Online marketing holds a lot of potential for the distribution of feature

films. The timing is good for local Malaysian film distributors and producers to

benefit from the positive impact of internet marketing ," he said.

internet social media providers with the intention of collaborating in promoting

Meanwhile "Dunya Gangster" co-producer Benny Zachariah has appealled to

private television stations to give more recognition to Dayak language movies

hope that I will be the guy that can convince Media Prima Groups to buy my

films,"he said.

"It’s not the question of how much they can pay for the film, but the most

important is that BFG makes history by becoming the first Sarawak film

production house to supply Dayak films to a reputable TV stations like ASTRO or

TV3," said 37-year-old Benny.

He said the first Dayak Iban travel documentary "Jalai-Jalai 1Malaysia" will
