The KLEX committee, Da Huang Pictures and SA Media proudly present the 1st Kuala Lumpur Experimental Film & Video Festival 2010 (KLEX). Experimental cinema has regarded as an important art discipline in contemporary art. The organizers hope that KLEX will create a better picture on experimental cinema, and thus clear out some usual preconceptions and confusions about the genre.

KLEX consists of 2 categories: Open Call Programs and Invited Guest Programs. To encourage the interaction and exchange between experimental filmmakers and video artists in Asia, especially in South East Asia; and to provide a platform for artists to develop an Asian experimental cinema that is unique in this region, KLEX has invited guest curators from Indonesia, Taiwan and the Philippines to each curate a screening program of works from their countries. As for the Open Call, we have received over 180 works from Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Japan, China, Canada, USA and Europe. The KLEX committee, together with a local guest curator has created 3 Open Call Programs out of the 180 submissions.
The KLEX committee hopes that the KL Experimental Film & Video Festival 2010 will serve as a platform for art exchange and education, to provide the Malaysian audience an opportunity to see experimental cinema from all over the world, to learn and to be informed with the development of this contemporary art form.

Admission: RM12 / day; RM5 /screening

KLEX aims at introducing both historical and contemporary experimental cinema to the Malaysian audience, nurturing the experimental film and videomakers in the region, and developing experimental cinema communities in Malaysia. KLEX will be a venue for a discourse on critical issues related to the edge of cinema art.

What would be experimental cinema in Malaysia and is there a chance for development of this genre in Malaysia?
