There’s a kind of power in documentaries that comes alive with the compassion and courage of filmmakers who yearn to speak truth to power. Good stories have the ability to transcend culture and, in doing so, urge audiences to ask questions of themselves and the world they live in.
This year, Malaysia’s leading international human rights documentary film festival, FreedomFilmFest (FFF), is back for its 15th year with a bold lineup of 40 award-winning films by both local and international filmmakers.

To the average city goer, Cyberjaya may not seem to hold much beyond its glut of tech spaces and development firms. However, this year’s edition of the Cyberjaya Multimedia Festival, or CMF18 (previously known as the Cyberjaya Music Festival) might prove yet again that the town is indeed capable of appealing to a more artistic crowd in its second instalment. Taking place on the 11th and 12th of August at Centrus Mall, the weekend festival boasts an ambitious mix of lineups aiming to ignite a creative burst in entrepreneurs, technologists and artists alike.
