Eco Film Fest 2009
Eco Film Fest 2009 was held at Palate
Palette every Sunday from 3-6 pm
for the entire month of October.
This was also in conjunction with the Malaysian Environment Week (third week of October). We performed on October 11 and 25 with the help of Henry Tan of the redoubtable Rollin' Sixers and then on 25 Wong Lip Kee of Soft Touch. To watch video of the Oct 11 show go to here
Talking about all things green, this free
film festival showcased a number of international and local films
focusing on environmental issues, as an efforts to draw public
awareness to environmental issues in Malaysia.
This year’s festival featured four award-winning international full length films, ‘Blue Gold’, ‘Garbage Revolution’, ‘The Woven Ways’, and ‘The Waterfront’. EFF 2009 also showcased two short films entitled ‘The Secret Life of Cell Phones’ and ‘The Secret Life of Paper’. One highlighting the harmful effects cell phones have on the world if not properly disposed of, the other providing a message on how easy and important it is to be a sustainable paper consumer.
On top of that, two of last year’s winners for the Best Editing award, ‘Wasiat’ and Best Film award, ‘What Happened To The Green?’ was also screened. Also, complimenting the film screenings were some fun green programmes for the young and old, including some musical performances by Qings & Kweens, Otam, Markiza & Peter backed up by Henry Tan and Wong Lip Kee,
and percussion group extraordinary KL Stompers
