14th International Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Fest – Make Films, Make Changes!

[FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE]

10th March 2021, Kuala Lumpur – The Kuala Lumpur Eco FIlm Fest (KLEFF) is back for its 14th instalment!

Malaysia is home to South-East Asia’s first and longest-running homegrown environmental film festival for the past 13 years; EcoKnights is proud to announce that the 14th International Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Fest (KLEFF) has launched its call for film submission on the 10th of March 2021 via FilmFreeway, a global digital platform for filmmakers to submit their films to hundreds of film festivals.

 

With KLEFF’s strong advocacy in climate change, the theme this year is, ‘Climate Change (Yourself)’; whereby the festival seeks for thought-provoking films that explore self-initiated changes that we can make on different levels and capacities, with the right mindsets and habits.

Returning from the 2020 pandemic phase that marked a new beginning for KLEFF as a digital film festival, KLEFF is continuing its role as a media platform for filmmaking, story-telling and knowledge-sharing in the global transformational journey towards sustainability, in society, economy, and environment.

Festival Director Fadly Bakhtiar quoted, “The decision to go on with KLEFF despite the pandemic is motivated by our firm beliefs that environmental advocacy to fight climate change must go on, and the call for climate action never stops, even amidst a global pandemic. Last year’s debut as a digital festival was a huge milestone with a steep learning curve for the team. We received encouraging response and support from our loyal supporters, thus proving that we need to be innovative and dynamic to keep our mission going now that the festival has evolved digitally.”

He also shared his views on this year’s theme, and believes it will shine a spotlight on the important issue at hand for the general public and audience by highlighting the importance of behavioural change in societies, as societal norms are a key factor in addressing climate issues.

Submission is open on the 10th of March until 25th June 2021, whereby the films will stand a chance to be screened in the festival as well as run for various awards in the KLEFF Film Competition, after going through an evaluation process by the festival committee and film panel jury. The festival accepts films of different genres which are long documentaries, feature films, short documentaries, short films, animation and Public Service Announcement (PSA). Chosen films will be screened during the festival via its online screening platform, KLEFFlix.
“For the past 13 years, we have been receiving films with inspiring stories that advocate for various sustainability topics and the call for action to make changes for a better world. That’s the beauty and strength of the filmmakers, they are educators and advocators through their lenses and story-telling. Meanwhile film festivals like KLEFF are the right platform to showcase the filmmakers’ magic,” commented Nabila Shohimi, Festival Manager.

Interested or aspiring filmmakers can submit their films in FilmFreeway: KLEFF 2021 within the timeline and film submission deadlines.

The festival has previously collaborated with the International Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition & Conference Malaysia (IGEM) for 5 years in sharing outreach platforms to educate more people about sustainability. Other than that, KLEFF has worked with a few partners to award and recognise winning filmmakers – River of Life (ROL) for the ‘River of Life Award’; and United Nation Development Programme (UNDP) and Malaysian Public Work Department (JKR) for the UNDP x JKR Energy Efficiency in Buildings Award.

THE INAUGURAL DIGITAL FESTIVAL OF THE 13TH KLEFF AMIDST A GLOBAL PANDEMIC

[For Immediate Release]

Media Kit Link: http://bit.ly/Media-Kit-KLEFF2020

16th September, Kuala Lumpur – The show must go on; the 13th International Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Fest (KLEFF 2020) set sail towards a digital course as the coronavirus outbreak continues.

The inaugural digital KLEFF festival is set to run week-long from the 19th to 25th of October, with yet another feast of sustainability-driven activities catered for all walks of life. With the theme “Climate (in)Justice: Pick A Side”, the festival received 118 film submissions from 44 countries, with 53 films confirmed to be screened during the festival.

“The decision to create a digital platform this year is motivated by the belief that environmental advocacy to fight climate injustice must go on, and the call for climate action never stops, even amidst a global pandemic,” said KLEFF Festival Director, Fadly Bakhtiar.

“The public confidence and partnering support by stakeholders in the last 12 years have been incredible thus far, hence strengthening our commitment and determination to execute a digital festival,” he continued.

With more list of program line-ups to be announced, KLEFF 2020 is set to showcase the flagship KLEFF film screening and award ceremony, the School of Sustainability (workshops and talks), Act4SDGs (SDG-driven initiatives), Green Vibes (live performances), a Digital Fundraising campaign and more.

“As the committee gears up to organizing yet another enriching eco-themed film festival, we are hopeful and driven to continue the environmental advocacy by any means necessary,” said Fadly.

KLEFF hit its 13 years of milestone with a stronger aspiration to bring climate- and eco-themed films to the national screen. In line with its mission to provide equal access to environmental education and implant the concept of sustainability into Malaysian consciousness – this year, KLEFF introduced a nationwide call for 10,000 public signatures to bring KLEFF films (past, present and future) into the mainstream media (national TV broadcast).

“KLEFF will continue to honour the stories, experiences and movement centered around sustainability and the environment to the highest standard,” echoed Fadly.
