The 16th edition of the FreedomFilmFest is a call to action to “Mend The Gap”. Despite progress in science, technology and democracy, the gaps between the rich and poor, the have and have nots, the powerful and the powerless are getting deeper and wider.

This year’s 8-day festival programme in Petaling Jaya consist of a total of 53 films and 15 thematic talks, workshops and masterclasses. All of the film screenings will be followed with a Question and Answer session with the filmmaker, the protaganist or an invited resource person. Admission to any event is via a Pass.

The Festival Schedule below will give you the complete overview of the festival programme. You can also check out the details of each film and thematic talks in the Film List. Under Events you will find details of the workshops, masterclasses, Virtual Reality and Bicycle Powered Cinema programmes. A selection of the programme will also be brought to different cities in our Travelling Festival.

Our festival would not be possible without the support and collaboration of all our partners listed below.
