MyDocs welcomes Freedom Film Network to the family!
The Freedom Film Network (FFN) is a not-for-profit body established to support and develop social documentary filmmaking within the context of freedom of expression and values contained in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights(UDHR) in Malaysia.
Making films that highlights the unseen, unheard and untold in Malaysia requires much passion and grit. There is almost no support to produce, distribute and self sustain from producing what we call “social justice films” in Malaysia.
Nevertheless, in a national landscape where information and media is tightly controlled, social justice films provide an accessible form of alternative and counter narratives. In many circumstances, it can return the power of representation back to the disenfranchised and marginalised in our society.
Recognising this crucial and strategic role of social films and filmmakers, FFN aims to create a sustainable model for social filmmaking in Malaysia by building a dynamic network of social filmmakers who can support, inspire and work together to produce powerful and relevant films within the constraints of our reality.
