FreedomFilmFestival (FFF): International Human Rights Documentary and Social Film Festival (Malaysia)
September 29, 2018 @ 8:00 am - October 7, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
This year’s theme: Mend the Gap is inspired by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development set out by member states of the United Nations that “No one should be Left Behind”.
Despite the advancement in science, technology and economy, humankind is further than ever from achieving an equitable society, It is reported that “82% of the global wealth generated in 2017 went to the most wealthy 1%.” (Oxfam at the World Economic Forum in Davos).
The Cutural Gap between different groups is no less worrying. Despite the presence of social media and other new ways of communication, many cultural and social groups are becoming more alienated from one another – which some experts claim, is the cause of increasing religious tension, violence and extremism in the world.
FreedomFilmFest would like to harness the power of film and great storytelling to create more awareness and empathy; and facilitate a deeper exchange between groups in order to close these gaps and inspire real change.
