Welcome to the 13th annual FreedomFilmFest, Malaysia’s leading international human rights film festival. We are proud to present 26 of the best Malaysian, regional and international documentaries. The selected films are thematically related in diverse ways to this year’s theme, “Unseen, Unheard, Untold”.
This year’s theme was chosen in keeping with our mission to give voice to marginalised issues and perspectives. We strongly believe in the power of these stories to challenge conventional views about the different issues and cultures showcased in each of the selected films.
We are also proud to present five FFF produced films from Malaysia and Singapore. As part of our mission to support documentary filmmakers in Malaysia and Singapore we awarded five FFF Film Grants to filmmakers in Malaysia and Singapore. The filmmakers also received production support throughout filming. The FFF Film Grant is a part of the festival’s advocacy for good films and films that do good. But more importantly, we hope to foster a conducive environment for bold socially conscious filmmakers to tell their stories.
This would not have been possible without the strong support of our regional partners and friends who have helped to promote the festival to filmmakers from their countries and facilitated the submission of films to us. To the filmmakers, we admire your passion and dedication to your field, and we will continue to support you through our platform.
To our audience, we know you appreciate good stories, so thank you for your support and participation in FFF 2015. Lastly, a big thank you to all our partners and sponsors, without your support this year’s festival would not be possible.
Festival Director, KOMAS
