ROLF hosts one big event every year to enable underprivileged children, youths, volunteers and donors meet and interact. We are excited to announce that ROLF will be organizing The 1st ROLF International Youth Short Film Festival in Kuala Lumpur in September, 2020. “What is Love?” is the main theme. We provide the youths a platform to show love, empathy and inspire life through their lens. Youths often have a very different way of looking at what happens to them and around them. The stories they tell provide us with an insight into what’s important to them, what makes them happy or sad. I think this festival should be all about showing the extraordinary experiences, sharing thoughts and emotions as well as motivating people to engage in cooperative behavior towards some social issues.
Film making is an art, a medium and a tool for social expression. It’s a blessing that film industry goes digital. It gives all of us a chance to witness a rich diversity of views. However, it is hard to work alone in this industry. The young emerging film makers need camaraderie to keep them going.
Areas to explore:
- Love & relationship between humans
- Love & relationship between humans and animals
- Love & relationship between people and their countries
- Love & relationship between humans and our mother earth
