The 11th International Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival will be held at MAP PUBLIKA, Mont Kiara Solaris from October 22 – 28, 2018.
The international Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival is Malaysia’s first and longest-running environmental film festival. In the last 10 years, the Festival has reached out to approximately 100,000 Malaysians through its film screenings and programs at selected venues all over the Peninsula.
Conceptualized and organized by not-for-profit environmental organization, EcoKnights, the Festival is a platform to facilitate building a nation of ecologically conscious businesses, individuals, and communities through on-ground activities and film screenings focused on critical environmental issues and stories such as pollution, transboundary haze, indigenous people’s rights, wildlife protection, nuclear energy, climate change, sustainable food production, waste management, local environmental heroes and more.
KLEFF promotes four main thrusts:
To promote sustainable production and consumption or green consumerism
To activate local activism and participation in environmental efforts through networking, and engagement in the activities lined up in KLEFF
To promote sustainability among businesses through strategic forums and panel discussions
To celebrate the important environmental films that are advocating for changes to protect the planet
Partnering with important sustainability leaders in the country, the KLEFF is steadfastly paving the way to encourage and inspire grassroots communities to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle. Award-winning environmental films, interactive learning workshops, and creative clusters within the Festival help to stress the urgent need to take positive actions today. In addition, the KLEFF also works closely with Malaysian higher institutes of learning with the aim of assisting in the development and progression of environmental communication, innovative solutions to address today’s environmental crises, and most importantly, the KLEFF provides a networking platform for the youths of today.
The Festival offers diverse and unique opportunities such as film screenings, workshops and talks on sustainable living, fun and creative nature craft activities for children, performances, exhibitions and fairground attractions.
