THE 9TH KLEFF IS NOW CALLING FOR ENTRIES
It’s that time of the year again and we are ready to rock and roll to bring Malaysia’s first and biggest environmental film festival to the forefront of environmental advocacy.
The 9th Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival cordially invites scientists, students, film makers, activists and just about anyone who has great environmental stories to share, to submit your film to this year’s festival film competition.
2015 has been a very interesting year for many Malaysians from the persistent two month long haze, to the recent rampant bauxite mining in Pahang, to the massive deforestation in Cameron Highlands and dwindling Malayan tiger population, Malaysia is definitely not short of environmental stories to tell.
Early bird rates are still applicable up till March 31 2016. Kindly refer to the submission guidelines and submission fee structure here.
BE PART OF KLEFF, SPONSOR TODAY
We are now calling for partners and sponsors for the 9th KLEFF and do hope that you can help us spread the word out.
The Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival is Malaysia’s longest serving environmental platform encompassing film premieres, free community events, industry and hospitality programs, VIP opportunities, and a wide range of performances and events.
With thousands of attendees annually and millions of media impressions, the Festival has become a destination for brands to achieve consumer marketing objectives that only a Kuala Lumpur based edutainment platform can offer. In 2016, the Festival will continue to find new ways to engage with audiences within Kuala Lumpur and around the globe. We look forward to engaging with our partners, new and returning for #KLEFF2016.
