"This in an alternative platform to deal with various issues concerning the community without any political agenda," says member. Local Partner - Otai Manjung, and his friends (they do not have an official group yet) have been working in the local communities there to educate them of their rights.
The FFF is a platform to discuss issues openly without any political influence, something which is important in a tourist destination like Seri Manjung that is currently seeing growing industrialisation, he says.
"When there is massive and rapid development in an area, it is important for the people living there to know their rights as it will affect their lives. The new media is an effective tool for raising this awareness and we have noticed that there is a growing interest in it here."
The other film that will be screened is Senyap.... Tersentak which deals with electoral reform.
