Solidarity with FreedomFilmFest

Global film community urges Malaysian authorities to drop all investigations and acts of intimidation on FreedomFilmFest

On 2nd June, Anna Har the festival director of the FREEDOMFILMFEST, and cartoonist Amin Landak, were called in for questioning by the Indonesian police over the production and online screening of a short animated film on police torture entitled, “Chili Powder and Thinner”. On the same day, the police raided the office of FreedomFilmFest and Amin’s home, and confiscated computers, modems and other related equipment. Subsequently, on 6 July, four more activists were called in for questioning. Three of them are members of SUARAM, a human rights organisation that co-produced the film, and the other was a guest speaker at the screening event.

About us

Founded by the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam, International Film Festival Rotterdam and the European Film Academy, the International Coalition for Filmmakers at Risk’s mission is to advocate for and to act in solidarity with filmmakers at risk. The Coalition acts in cases of persecution or threats to the personal safety of these filmmakers and will defend their right to continue their work, by mobilising the international film community.

Ambassadors

The unconditional support of filmmakers is the best support a filmmaker at risk can get. If there could be an institution representing all the world’s famous and respected filmmakers, they could then at any time, support actively and efficiently any filmmaker in danger.
