The 8th International Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival (KLEFF) will screen 116 foreign films for three days, beginning Oct 16 at the Publika Mall here.

EcoKnights founder and president Yasmin Rasyid said the festival promoted sustainable consumption and production by pulling together the ecosystem of amazing local and international efforts in highlighting green products and services.

"Like never before, attendees to KLEFF will be empowered to explore the innovation in storytelling of urgent environmental issues," she said after a KLEFF media launch ceremony here Friday.

She said KLEFF would continue to provide a platform for local green initiatives, movements, businesses and arts to pursue their passion to change for a better environment.
