The Perspectives Film Festival is an annual event organized by students of the Nanyang Technological University’s Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information. This student-led festival is part of the new curriculum in the school, which aims to expose students to a more practical approach to the syllabus that goes beyond the classroom. Last year was the inaugural year, and it featured some of the first, classic films produced in Singapore, highlighting the glorious past of our local film history,
This year’s theme is more fun, entitled ‘Monster Mania!’, which aims to introduce and reacquaint Singaporean audiences with iconic monsters such as Godzilla (vs King Ghidorah) and the Mighty Peking Man. A highlight of the festival is the specially composed selection of original music for the silent classic film Nosferatu that promises to enhance the aural experience of watching the movie. In addition to the four specially chosen movies (the last one being Little Shop of Horrors, the festival will also feature an opening address by Singaporean film auteur Eric Khoo.
