Film submission for FreedomFilmFest 2021 is now open.

About the Theme

Pandemik Dua Darjat (Pandemic of Inequality) is about how the Covid-19 pandemic has exposed the inequality between the haves and have-nots, and between those in power and the disempowered. People are treated unjustly based on their social status. 

We believe that every human being is equal and should be treated equally regardless of colour, beliefs, class, nationality, age, gender and orientation.
