Three films were rated M18 (Mature 18) and another three NC16 (No children under 16). The event will be held at 7pm on Oct 28, at The Substation.Â
The Freedom Film Fest was initiated by the Malaysian non-governmental organisation, Pusat Komas, as a means to educate the public on the value of human rights.
