Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Fest
The Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival (KLEFF) is Malaysia’s first and longest-serving creative platform promoting sustainable living. Organized annually since 2008, KLEFF’s mission is to accelerate mainstreaming of sustainable living and stewardship of the environment through the power of audio-visual materials and activities.
In the month of October, KLEFF hosts the screening of more than 80 films reaching to an audience of more than 5,000. With the collaboration of partners and sponsors, KLEFF is gradually becoming the nation’s celebrated grassroots cultural and environmental event.
Partnering with important sustainability leaders in the country, the KLEFF is steadfastly paving the way to encourage and inspire grassroots communities to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle. Award-winning environmental films, interactive learning workshops, and creative clusters within the Festival help to stress the urgent need to take positive actions today. In addition, the KLEFF also works closely with Malaysian higher institutes of learning with the aim of assisting in the development and progression of environmental communication and innovative solutions to address today’s environmental crises,.
The Festival also offers diverse and unique opportunities such as film screenings, workshops and talks on sustainable living, fun and creative nature craft activities for children, performances, exhibitions and fairground attractions.
KLEFF promotes four main thrusts:
To promote sustainable production and consumption or green consumerism
To activate local activism and participation in environmental efforts through networking, and engagement in the activities lined up in KLEFF
To promote sustainability among businesses through strategic forums and panel discussions
To celebrate the important environmental films that are advocating for changes to protect the planet
