Suara Community Filmmaking is a year-long capacity building programme where we work with indigenous and local community filmmakers from all over Sabah to capture and communicate their stories, experiences and worldviews related to Borneo's biocultural heritage. This is the heart of BEFF's community filmmaking journey.
The principle material outputs of the Suara community filmmaking programme include the completion of SUARA FILMS and their screening to the general public during the festival. Films were shot on location in the participants’ communities, and represent the culmination of efforts undertaken throughout the year-long Suara training.
Exciting, engaging and educational, SUARA PUBLIKA sessions are designed to be casual and fun learning experiences where we can discover the inter-connections between filmmaking and environmental conservation through stories of some of the best organisations and individuals working in Sabah, Borneo and Malaysia.
