28 March 2011, Kuala Lumpur â€“ A private green screening was held for the benefit of Khazanah Nasional Berhad employees today at the Tanjung Goldern Village cinemas, at the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC).
Initiated by the CSR Department and KVN (Khazanah Volunteer Network) of KNB and also with the encouragement from the Managing Director of KNB, Tan Sri Datoâ€™ Azman Mokhtar, EcoKnights was cordially invited to showcase the 2011 Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival winning films to an audience of about 120 KNB employees.
The objective of this screening is to assist in raising awareness and eco consciousness among KNB staff on local and global environmental issues.
The Malaysia film makers of the winning films were also present to introduce their films and were around for a quick &Q&A session. Among the film makers were Kimberly Yap (winner of Best Young Film Maker Award), Lara Ariffin (film maker of â€śOn Borrowed Timeâ€ť), Elizabeth John and Kanitha from TRAFFIC, and Christopher and Fong from WWF-Malaysia. Watch "On Borrowed Time" below.
The discussion of the issues and matters featured in the films went on very intense as the issue of wildlife poaching and local governmental policies and laws were some of the issues raised by the employees.
