About KLEX

KLEX is an independent, artist-run grassroots international festival of experimental film, video art and music founded in Malaysia in 2010. KLEX aims to serve as a platform to introduce contemporary experimental cinema and music from the region and worldwide to the Malaysian audience, as well as to introduce works from South East Asia to other parts of the world and vice versa, to cultivate understanding, learning, friendship and exchange among local, regional and international experimental art communities. With the dedication of a volunteer committee with great enthusiasm, the festival has been running for the 8th consecutive year.

  • KLEX 2018:  CALL FOR WORK!

    KLEX Open Programme

    Theme: Translucence

    Release Date: 2 April 2018

    Deadline: 2 June 2018

    The 9th edition of KLEX is looking for submissions for its open film programmes! This year, our theme is “Translucence”.

    “Translucence has issues with clarity. Our eye fights to see clarity as clarity is defineable. Our comfort lies in a definition. The confidence to identify. A translucent facade or a trans-imagery allows a certain amount of light but clarity was never the goal. The image becomes only an essence of exactitude. A remnant of a definition.”

    Use “Translucence” as a hint or a source of inspiration and imagination. We’re awaiting your new work, starting from now!
