Hear Me Now!: The Power of Voice in a Digital Age

Black Box

In an age of instantly shareable video and image, with film and TV available on demand, what makes the power of the human voice so enduring? Podcasting, both audio and video, is a format that can have a major impact when it comes to representing diverse voices. Does simplicity account for the format’s success? As the lines between CGI, animation and live action storytelling are increasingly being blurred, is it the human voice that connects machine actors and human audiences? This panel will take a look at the phenomenon of contemporary storytelling and how it’s changed the way we use our voices as social, economic, and democratic tools.

For the first time, an entrance fee of RM10 is charged for admission to the entire festival (5 – 7 October 2018), EXCEPT for workshops and special events, which are charged separately.

The Cooler Lumpur Festival has always been supported by grants, and as we approach our 6th year, a nominal contribution from our attendees will help greatly in keeping the festival sustainable and independent for years to come.
