Cake Project offers an opportunity to the creative community to make possible ambitious projects for future development. This bi-monthly events aim to build a strong, generous and diverse network of local art practitioners and audiences. Public participation and discussion encourage the success.

How it works?

• At the event, every person will be asked 
to donate a minimum of RM15, which goes to the prize pot. In return, you’ll share a piece of homemade cake and coffee/tea, at the same time eligible to vote for ONE proposal you think has the best creative idea.

• Each participant who has submitted proposal is required to make a brief presentation on his/her submitted idea. Occasionally, there may also be performances or talks by special guests.

• At the end of the event, votes are counted. The winner receives the prize pot (the evening’s donations) and will be invited to present the outcomes of their project at the next event.

So, you can participate by sending in your proposal, present your idea, hear the other ideas and vote on your favourite;


You can join as a voter, listen to new ideas, enjoy a piece of cake and coffee/tea and vote on the idea that you like most to see it happen.

Either way everyone gets to vote.

Film Screening - “IF IT'S NOT NOW, THEN WHEN?” 电影放映会-“如果还有明天”

Date: 1 November 2012
Time: 8pm
Venue: Toccata Studio--19B, SS2/55, 47300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor. 
Admission: minimum donation RM5

Feature length, Family Drama, 86 minutes, Chinese dialects with English subtitles
Written, Directed by James Lee

The movie is supported by Krishen Jit Astro Funds and Hubert Bal Funds of Rotterdam. All screenings are accompanied by a Q&A session with the director & casts.

If It’s Not Now, Then When? mostly takes place in an apartment inhabited by three members of a family (though never at the same time): mother Pearlly Chua (from Tsai Ming-liang’s I Don’t Want to Sleep Alone), daughter Tan Bee Hung and young son Kenny Gan. Their father seems recently to have died. The mother leaves early and returns late, out on long walks in the park with a lover whom the daughter and her best friend try to spy on. The daughter pecks away at a computer at work and has a desultory affair with her married boss, which he carries on between his business and family phone calls. And the son breaks into cars and “recycles” the electronics he finds.

Lee’s characters are superb at indicating, despite their placid, seemingly calm exteriors, that tension inflected with despair lurks just underneath. With precise control, Lee circulates the three characters through ever-overlapping spaces, as they seek ways to connect with each other. When the final eruption occurs, it is all the more fierce, disturbing, despairing—and quite possibly (even controversially) somehow satisfying.

— Shelly Kraicer, VIFF

In addition to the feature film, three new short films by James Lee will be presented prior to the feature presentation. The shorts are:
1.) Birthday Lunch, 9 min
2.) Family Portrait, 6 min
3.) The Last Supper, 5 min
