Green Vibes Lineup Announced
Green Vibes is back for the 7th Annual Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival (KLEFF) with new and returning performers!
Featuring acts such as the Venopian Solitude and Jes Ebrahim, Green Vibes features some of Malaysia’s up and coming local musical performers. Confirmed acts include:
Green Vibes will take place during the KLEFF on Sunday, 19th October 2014 from 3pm - 9pm. All performances will take place at The Bee in Publika Mall and are free to the public. Green Vibes is supported by Tanamera Tropical Spa Products.
The KLEFF would not exist were it not for the help and support of our sponsors and partners. Though it’s too late to contribute to the 2014, 7th Annual KLEFF, 2015 is right around the corner so now’s the time to think about partnership opportunities!
Apart from the Festival itself (this year being held 17-19th Oct 2014), the KLEFF also offers many additional marketing opportunities throughout the year. From the KLEFF Programme Guide (25,000 copies) to our monthly e-newsletter (that goes out to 7,000 ++ names in our database) the KLEFF provides an abundance of arenas in which your brand can be advertised.
October is just around the corner and details of the 7th Annual Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival (KLEFF) weekend are nearly finalized. As with every year, the KLEFF team is working to provide festival goers and supporters with an all-inclusive 2014 KLEFF Guidebook!
There are still a few details to sort out, but expect to see an assortment of articles, including an interview with EcoKnights President Yasmin Rasyid, a “Festival 101” guide to the KLEFF, information on all film screenings, workshops, musical performers and Eco-vendors, and much, much more.
You’ll also notice that the Guidebook features the wonderful peacock artwork provided by Portuguese artist Maria Baldaia. Although that peacock is now closely associated with the 2014 KLEFF, be on the lookout for a few tweaks to the design!
The Guidebook will be sent to your inbox with our September Newsletter, but be sure to check the KLEFF Website and FB pages for updates and advanced viewing!
