Freedom Film Fest


Dates: August 20th – 28th, 2016
Place: Saitama, Malaysia

FreedomFilmFestival (FFF) is Malaysia’s most established annual human rights film festival. We adopt the themes encompassed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We believe that the protection of basic human rights is the foundation for genuine justice, peace, equality and democracy.

The FreedomFilmFest was launched in 2003 with the festival tag line, “Dare To Document”. This tag line represents the spirit of the festival – to encourage filmmakers to document and share their stories without fear or hesitation.We started as predominantly a human rights documentary film festival whereby documentary films take centre stage together with a smaller selection of short fiction or feature films with strong human rights themes. This focus on documentaries is a response to the lack of support and promotion of documentaries/non fiction and social filmmaking in Malaysia compared to the more popular and commercially viable feature and fiction film making.
