Bandar Seri Begawan, 24 August 2014 – Baiduri Bank held two exclusive movie screenings of Brunei's very own Yasmine for its Smart Executive members and Corporate Banking clients on Thursday, 21 August as well as its Prestige members on Sunday, 24 August. The film represents many new firsts for Brunei’s film industry: Yasmine is not only the nation’s first ever box-office film but also marks the big-screen debut of many of its stars.

The film, four years in the making, showcases the directorial prowess of Brunei's first female director, Siti Kamaluddin, and follows the story of a girl who aspires to be a silat champion. Baiduri Smart Executive members from the Belait district as well as the capital thronged to Times Cineplex @ Empire on Thursday's evening screening whereas the Prestige members were given an afternoon screening on Sunday. Baiduri Prestige members also received official Yasmine merchandise.

Ms Alvina Chung, Regional Manager, Branch Network, spoke on the benefits of being a Prestige member. "One of the many privileges of being a Prestige member is that they will receive special invitations to events such as this movie screening." Hjh Maripaz, the Programme Manager for Baiduri Smart Executive further went on to state that "We believe in supporting our local talents and what better way to show this support than by treating our members to a movie directed by a Bruneian female director and headlined by our very own Liyana Yus."

Also present at the film premiere were Pg Azaleen Pg Dato Hj Mustapha, Head, Retail Banking and Branch Network and Ms Leila Zainal, Assistant Manager of Corporate Communications and Marketing as well as other senior officials from the Prestige and Smart Executive programmes. Speaking on the activities under the Smart Executive Programme, Muiz DP Hj Adnan, Marketing Communications Officer for the Programme said, "This is the second time that the Smart Executive Programme has held a movie screening for its members and has proved to be a success."

Baiduri's Smart Executive Programme was launched last year and offers a multitude of benefits geared towards the busy, working professional, such as smart banking solutions, special rates across a range of banking products as well as other benefits.
