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.

  • KLEX 2016: SPARK


    Festival Dates: late November 2016

    Call Release Date: 30 March 2016

    Submission Deadline: 30 May 2016


    Hello, friends of KLEX! The seventh edition of KLEX is looking for submissions! This year, our theme is “SPARK”. Use it as a hint or a source of inspiration and imagination.

    A spark could start a light, a fire, an electric current, an enthusiasm, or a relationship. It is the crucial moment when things ignite, take it on and simply “happen”. It could turn out to be no more than little sparkling lights, or it could turn into majestic fireworks. Just as you can’t clap with one hand only, it takes two (or more) to come into close contact to generate a spark. When they strike it up, something unexpected happens, something that couldn’t have existed without them coming together in the first place, exactly as when two tones with close fundamental frequencies are played simultaneously and our ears and brain produce what we call a “ghost tone”: a totally magical moment!

    We’re awaiting your new work, starting from NOW!
