Last year, Matt William Knowles starring in the film “Poppies,” won our Best Actor Award. Just last month, the film also won the Popular Choice award at the Katra Film Festival and has been shortlisted again at That Film Festival in Berlin. The director, Myles Yaksich said: "It has always been my dream to be able to write and direct "Poppies". I am very excited to have the opportunity to turn it into a movie. The story is about a flight from New York to Shanghai, a frustrated American lawyer was attracted to a wise Chinese woman who was next door, [which] then opened up an emotion that he had long buried in his heart."

We are ecstatic to see the success of “Poppies,” and we hope to further acknowledge and contribute to the success of well-deserving films such as this one!
