The Freedom Film Fest has become a fixture here in the Malaysian cultural calendar, for highlighting documentaries on human rights and social justice that are relevant to this region.
Usually the festival is coupled with various live events and talks, but the coronavirus pandemic this year has limited a lot of that. So BFM speaks to directors of the Freedom Film Network, Anna Har and Brenda Danker, about the Freedom Film Fest 2020 shifting online, and how the pandemic has affected its filmmakers.
They also discuss the relevance of this year’s theme “Bangsa: Manusia” (Race: Human), and what we can expect from the documentaries being featured.
Produced and presented by Sharmilla Ganesan
