Good news everyone! We have found the new venue for our MESYM Documentary Nights, and it’s as centrally located as it can get – in Plaza Sentral, right beside KL Sentral. This means that the event will be accessible by many forms of public transportation (Kelana Jaya LRT, KTM, Monorail, KLIA Transit/Express, as well as buses), and if you drive the parking is RM4 per entry after 6pm, in Plaza Sentral.

The new address:
Incubation Centre (MSC Malaysia)

We will start the MESYM Documentary Nights again from March, every second Friday of the month (note that we have changed it from every second Tuesday of the month to Friday). Stay tuned for the announcement of our next film soon!
