Greetings from the 7th Annual Kuala Lumpur Eco-Film Festival!
Things are getting quite busy preparing for this year’s KLEFF and there are plenty of updates to share!
As a reminder, the 7th Annual KLEFF will be held at MAP Publika from October 17th – 19th 2014. For more information, log on to www.ecofilmfest.my.
As October nears, there are copious logistics to work out in preparing for the event weekend. In addition to our usual activities like community screenings, we’re now fully entrenched in planning the festival itself. As such, there are a lot of opportunities to get involved and contribute to a good cause!
Upcoming Community Screenings
Several local businesses and organizations have shown great interest in hosting community screenings as of late. With the award winning films we have to offer, who can blame them?! Here’s a peek at our upcoming community screening schedule:
Shell Refining Company (SRC) Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan 19th June 2014 (Thursday) 12.00pm - 1.30pm
DHL Information Services (Asia-Pacific) Cyberjaya, Selangor 30th May 2014 (Friday) 2pm - 5pm
MPSJ JKP Zone 9 Puchong, Selangor 8th June 2014 (Sunday) 4pm
Sime Darby Property Berhad "Green Office Week" Ara Damansara, Selangor 9th June 2014 (Monday) 1pm - 2.30pm
Thanks to all of our hosts and don’t forget to schedule a screening for your business, school, or community today!
The DiGi WWWOW Awards prides itself as a platform to showcase innovative ideas that demonstrate the power of the Internet for communities throughout Malaysia. This year the 2014 KLEFF has decided to join the action and compete!
The DiGi WWWOW Award’s objective is to, “…recognise people… who are idea generators for Internet greatness, filling the web with high-potential business ventures, powerful people-centric content, (and) community-based creativity…” As an ongoing and annual event, we here at KLEFF feel that we meet that description and are eager to show Malaysia what we have to offer!

Besides the Annual KLEFF, Festival organizers, EcoKnights, provides many other great opportunities for people to get involved with their communities and their environment. That’s why the 2014 KLEFF team is pleased to support another wonderful program, the Sentinels of Time Photography Competition.
This year’s competition is focused on “Urban Nature”; those beautiful and sometimes rare occasions where the modern and natural worlds live in harmony with one another. Anyone can apply, so long as the photo submitted shows Urban Nature in Malaysia.
Much like the KLEFF, the Sentinels of Time Photography Competition aims to showcase the environment for all its beauty and all the problems it faces. We feel that this is a great opportunity for people to highlight their surroundings and with a top prize of RM2,000 it’s also a great way to earn some cash!
To submit a photo, for more information on the competition, or to check out photos from previous competitions, please visit our website.
KLEFF Call for Sponsors and Partners
The KLEFF would not exist were it not for the help and support of our sponsors and partners. Fortunately, the Festival is able to repay such a debt through wonderful and far reaching advertising and branding opportunities!
Apart from the Festival itself (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.
One of the main and most important logistics we need to take care of is keeping our KLEFF guests happy through snacks and beverages. Because the event lasts all weekend and draws people from all walks of life, plenty of culinary variety is needed!
Of course, being an environmental event, we’d love to get some organic or otherwise “green” food and beverage vendors involved. However, we know there are plenty of non-organic providers out there who would love to support an environmental cause and we welcome their sponsorship as well! All we ask is that packaging is kept to a minimum and that non-reusable items are recyclable.
If you’re keen to join our cause and get involved during festival weekend, be sure to sign up for F&B sponsorship today! Remember, you’re not just supporting a wonderful cause, you’re also putting your product in the hands of a large, diverse audience.
Langkawi Eco Film Festival (LEFF)
Plans for the inaugural Langkawi Eco Film Festival (LEFF) are well under way and we have a few updates to share with you!
As you know, the LEFF will take place in conjunction with the Langkawi International Arts Colony (LIAC) on 11th and 12th October, 2014. The LEFF team is excited to work with the LIAC on this project and is pleased to announce additional collaboration with local environmental organization Biji Biji!
The LEFF is also excited to announce that the films The Island President and Sand Wars will be the official selections of the 2014 LEFF. These films were selected because they deal with environmental matters unique to island life, which should be of particular interest to those living and staying on Langkawi Island.
The LEFF team will continue to provide you with important updates, but be on the lookout for our official LEFF website scheduled to be launched sometime this June!
Well, that's all for now folks. For any inquiries, please feel free to contact the KLEFF secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a good day!
