True Colors Festival is proud to present its inaugural True Colors Film Festival (TCFF), which runs online from 3 to 12 December 2020.

The 10-day digital event offers a feast of about 30 award-winning features and short films curated around the theme “One World, One Family“, each turning the spotlight on the universal experiences of connection, hope, dreams, struggle, and transformation.

The curatorial team is led by Singaporean film director Tan Bee Thiam, whose film Tiong Bahru Social Club premiered at the 25th Busan International Film Festival in October this year.

Opening on 3 Dec — also International Day of Persons with Disability — TCFF will kickstart the festival with 37 Seconds (2019; Japan), a unique tale about a young comic book artist with cerebral palsy, and how she navigates disability while building a career in the adult manga industry. So if you missed SFS’ screening of 37 Seconds previously, now’s your chance to catch it!

The screening will be followed by a live stream dialogue session featuring director Hikari (Best New Director, Asian Film Awards 2020), available to audiences worldwide on Vimeo (live on 3 December, 00:00 SGT).


Some award-winning films include:

Listen (2020; Portugal/United Kingdom), nominated just this week as Portugal’s Oscar Entry for Best International Film and winner of seven awards at the Venice Film Festival 2020. Migrant struggles, judgments and best intentions gone wrong.

Mental (2008; Japan/United States), winner of Best Documentary, Busan International Film Festival, and Official Selection: Berlin International Film Festival. The complex world of a mental health clinic in Japan and the lives of its patients and staff.
