BEBASKAN FILEM
Merdekakan minda rakyat

We need to change the film censorship system to create a better future for the film industry and nurture dynamic, creative minds for Malaysian society.

Bebaskan Filem is an initiative towards that goal and we want to change what Malaysians see in cinemas and on public television. The current system which is based on the Film Censorship Act is problematic because:

  • Does not foster a Malaysian film industry that is dynamic, creative and inclusive.
  • Does not give space to alternative and critical voices, including marginalised groups. 
  • Does not nurture the creation of films that help create a thinking public that is critical, progressive and open to ideas which is necessary in today’s challenging digital world.
  • Does not create an eco-system for film workers and arts people that is professional and financially sustainable.
  • Is used by those in political power to advance their narrow agendas.

This system needs to be changed and we invite filmmakers and film workers, civil society, artistes, content creators and the general public to work with us to create a new system that is fair, inclusive, professional and has the public interest at heart.

Sistem penapisan filem dan anda.

Kalau anda sedang, mahu atau minat untuk membikin filem, anda perlu tahu bagaimana sistem ini akan mengekang anda.

Suara pengkarya tentang penapisan.

Dengar daripada mereka yang bergelut dengan sistem penapisan dan kesannya terhadap penghasilan karya tanah air. Ada yang mengatakan kekangan kepada kreativiti itu satu lumrah yang perlu diterima. Tetapi ramai juga yang mengatakan ini tidak benar, adil dan sihat untuk pembangunan industri dan seni filem negara.

Nasir Jani melawan lembaga puaka

Rockers serah rambut untuk dipotong sang pemerintah. Wawasan 2020  menjadi ideologi kebangsaan. Kontrak drama tempatan diberi syarikat luar negara. Ini semua percikan yang membakar semangat pembikin filem, Nasir Jani, untuk bersuara menentang prinsip censorship Mahathirisme. Pengalaman Pak Nasir disusuli dengan suara pembikin filem muda Amanda Nell Yu dan Steven Sarath Baru yang terbeban dengan perjuangan yang belum selesai.
