    Zahir Omar is a Malaysian based storyteller who works as a feature film and commercial director. When he is not working on his feature projects, he spends a lot of time travelling the region doing commercials for Google, Nestlé, McDonald’s, and other multinationals. He won his first accolade in the BMW Shorties 2007, with his short film titled K- HOLE (2007). With the prize money, he went on to make his second short, TEDDY & I (2008). Both films screened at International Film Festival Rotterdam 2009 and New York City Short Film Festival 2008. For the next 10 years, Zahir spent most of his time travelling around Asia, earning his stripes by sharpening his craft in the commercial industry before applying those skills to his debut feature, FLY BY NIGHT (2018), a Malaysian production. The film had its world premiere at the prestigious Busan International Film Festival 2018.
