Don’t miss this chance to watch over 20 thought provoking films from all over the world plus the opportunity to meet and talk freely with some of the filmmakers including One Nation Under Lee’s Seelan Palay from Singapore, Indonesian filmmaker Ariani Darmawan (Dragons Beget Dragons) and Malaysia’s very own filmmaker and activist, Chi Too (What Forest?) who’s films will explore issues of culture, identity, race, religion, development and democracy, among many others.

The festival will also have a special screening of the award winning documentary The War on Democracy by critically acclaimed journalist John Pilger.

A special photo exhibition will feature photographs submitted by the public which will challenge and explore the very idea of ‘Democratic Space’ plus various NGOs, filmmakers and local activists will be stationed during the event promoting their organisations so expect to be engaged!
