#FFF2017 - Freedom of Expression and Documentary Filmmaking Workshop with filmmakers Corrine Egeraat and Petr Lom - in collaboration with MyDocs (Malaysian Documentary Association).

Don’t hurt anyone, work with love and respect and tell a beautiful eternal story....

Petr Lom and Corinne van Egeraat have more than fifteen years of experience making films dedicated to freedom of expression. They will discuss strategies and tools for effective and creative storytelling in countries where freedom of speech is fragile, or not guaranteed. They will use their previous work from Egypt, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Kosovo, Cameroon and Myanmar as case studies, with particular focus on their latest film: Burma Storybook.
