Malaysian Eco Film Fest 2008

We wrote about the Eco Knights previously, and the Film Festival where foreign eco-films will be shown.

Even more exciting is that a competition for local Malaysian Film Makers was held too (closing date of submission was 15th July 2008).

Currently films are being judged for shortlisting and finalists will go through another round of workshops (guidance for our budding film makers! so great!).

You too can watch the shortlisted films – here’s where they are screening :

6th October 2008 : KLMP, Bukit Jalil

7th October 2008 : ASWARA

13th October 2008 : Help University College

15th October 2008 : Taylor’s College

16th October 2008 : Palate Pallete

Be sure to mark down a date in your diary.
