Coverage of the opening of the Freedom Arts Festival in Putrajaya, Malaysia.
The KOMAS Freedom Film Festival (FFF) is the first annual documentary film festival in Malaysia. Established in 2003, it adopts the themes encompassed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), pioneering a documentary film competition method in Malaysia which encourages first-time film makers to turn their winning proposals into films. This year the FFF incorporates visual art and music into it's programme, and calls itself the Freedom Arts Festival.
FFF strives to bring socially relevant films and documentaries to the Malaysian public; we believe that the protection of our rights is the foundation for genuine justice, peace, equality and democracy.
Through an annual film competition, video workshops, and film screenings, FFF creates a vital platform to showcase outstanding human rights documentaries, often unseen from the public eye due to little commercial backing and the control of mainstream media.
