Freedom Film Fest
In the Name of the Cup

Film festivals have been criticised for lacking curation, but not the Freedom Film Fest (FFF), Malaysia’s premier human rights documentary film festival, which returns with the theme ‘Unseen, Unheard, Untold’. The line-up is no less impressive this year as the festival showcases 20 films on contemporary issues including multiculturalism, violence against women, urban planning, caring for the elderly, and – the greatest dilemma that has struck a chord with Malaysian media practitioners recently – freedom of the press.

The FFF not only functions as a springboard for local independent filmmakers to debut their work, but also as a platform to discuss about the notion of freedom or even filmmaking ideas with regional experts in the Southeast Asia Video Activist Forum. Make sure you catch these film screenings at the festival: ‘Question Mark’ (Sep 11, 7.30pm to 10pm); ‘Citizen Four’ (Sep 13, 7.30pm to 10pm) as well as ‘In the Name of the Cup’ (Sep 18, 8pm to 10pm).
