FreedomFilmFest (FFF), Malaysia’s leading human rights film festival is back and proud to announce a diverse host of hard-hitting and courageous documentaries for 2017. Returning to PJ Live Arts, this year’s festival offers a compelling line-up of 40 must-see films, showcasing the very best of local and international talent, boldly uncovering some of the most prominent issues of our time.

FFF is also delighted to announce this year’s program schedule offering festival-goers the opportunity to get up close and personal with cutting-edge filmmakers from across the globe. The festival is jam-packed with brand new interactive workshops, talks, food-tasting events and musical performances – all expertly curated to complement the festival’s film screenings.

This year’s weeklong festival (2-9th September 2017) will focus its attention on the UN Declaration of Human Rights and in particular the recognition that “all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights”. With thought-provoking films and talks, focusing on globally relevant issues such as environmental degradation, ageing, food activism and countering extremism, FFF 2017 caters to everyone.

Be inspired by people power and follow the incredible stories of grassroots activists in Barcelona (“Ada for Mayor” by Pau Faus) and Delhi (“An Insignificant Man” by Khushboo Ranka and Vinay Shukla) as they tirelessly campaign for social justice and succeed in bringing much needed reforms to mainstream politics. Also not to be missed is the internationally acclaimed documentary “Sunday Beauty Queens” by Filipino director Baby Ruth Villarama, which intimately documents the struggles of overseas Filipino workers in Hong Kong and how local beauty pageants are empowering the community.
