Get Acquainted With Asian Cinema At The Singapore International Film Festival From 23 November

By Adrian Han

Forget about Hollywood for a second and get your dose of cinematic visuals at the Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF), happening at various locations around Singapore from 23 November to 3 December 2017.

Founded in 1987, SGIFF is the longest-running film festival in Singapore, consistently showcasing the best of Asian cinema and the tremendous talent of international filmmakers.

There will be over 100 film screenings, guaranteed to satisfy fans of various genres. From action-thrillers to sombre dramas, SGIFF has got you covered.

Chinese director and producer, Vivian Qu’s film titled “Angels Wear White” will start the festival off with a bang at the Marina Bay Sands. This Golden Horse Awards nominee film gives an insight into corruption, oppression, and injustice in modern-day China.

You can also look forward to masterpieces by our local talents, such as “I Want To Go Home” by director Wesley Leon Aroozoo; a documentary on the overwhelming emotions felt when a loved one is lost. I can already feel the tears coming for this one.

With so many films being showcased, take the opportunity to see what the future holds for our aspiring filmmakers and show some support. Maybe you’ll get inspired too.

For details on the film schedule and venues, visit the SGIFF website for more information.

Dates & Times: 23 November 2017 – 3 December 2017

Prices: From $12
