21st Singapore International Film Festival

Hello friends, it's almost that time of the year again that we get all excited over the lineup of the films screening at the SIFF. Into it's 21st edition, my interest will still be the screenings of locally made films, and this year seems to have a bumper crop, with no less than 14 features and documentaries slated for screening under a new section called Singapore Panorama.

The festival trailer above is made by director Victric Thng, created specially for this year's event. Royston Tan also directed a tribute to local filmmakers, and that can be seen in the video below. If you're not sure who most of them are, perhaps it is time to get acquainted with them during the festival!

For those on Facebook, you can join the SIFF Group for more updates, or tune in to this blog of course.

I've got a list of Singaporean movies for the festival listed here (under SIFF), and over the next few weeks leading to the Festival, I will be posting up some details on them, so keep your eyes peeled!
