Singapore International Film Festival (SIFF)

What Film buffs are in for a treat this weekend as they can look forward to an exciting lineup of screenings and events curated for audiences of every kind. Not only does this year’s film festival boast works from stellar directors and cinematographers, the narratives discussed pervades the periphery and ventures into difficult realities of the private sphere, inciting a degree of self-reflection and conversations about national discourse. Featuring an array of works ranging from propagandic films in North Korea to the picturesque landscapes of rural plantations in Italy this weekend, the quiet journey of chasing visuals have never been so purposefully insightful.
