Welcome to the SUARA COMMUNITY FILMMAKING programme.
“Suara” is the Malay word for Voice.
Everyone should have the opportunity to tell their stories in their own words and images.
SUARA COMMUNITY FILMMAKING is a tailor-made training programme for aspiring indigenous and local community filmmakers in Sabah. Through thematic and intensive workshops helmed by leading professionals in the Malaysian film industry, Suara Community filmmakers learn to harness the power of images and sound to tell the stories about their communities, experiences, the environments around them and worldviews related to Borneo’s biocultural heritage.
This is the heart of Borneo Eco Film Festival’s community filmmaking journey.
Each year, indigenous and local community filmmakers from villages across Sabah will converge at the highlight festival to share their delightful and compelling stories with you!
