About KLEX

KLEX is an independent, artist-run grassroots international festival of experimental film, video art and music founded in Malaysia in 2010 by a cross-disciplinary group of artists. With an independent spirit and enthusiasm, 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, to cultivate understanding, learning, friendship and exchange among local, regional and international experimental art communities.

  • KLEX 2015: “PULSE”

    The 6th Kuala Lumpur Experimental Film, Video & Music Festival (KLEX) 


    Festival Dates: mid November 2015

    Call Release Date: 1 April 2015

    Submission Deadline: 1 June 2015


    ‘Living’ is a kind of vibration and movement. The heartbeat of a new born baby, glowing neon lights pulsating in the city, ocean waves dancing with its unique rhythm… The very fact of our existence, being alive, is manifested through the pulse. These humble and basic vibrating beats bring out the hybrid forms of realities and wonders.

    Fellow experimental filmmakers and video artists, the 6th KLEX 2015 is happening! This year, our theme is “PULSE”. Use it as a hint or a source of inspiration and imagination. We’re awaiting your new work!
