Key Events

Singapore Chinese Film Festival

Launched in 2013, the Singapore Chinese Film Festival (SCFF) is co-founded and organised by the Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS), and the Singapore Film Society (SFS). SCFF is held in April/May of each year, and its objective is to promote the appreciation of Chinese cinema, culture, and values.In particular, the organisers aim to showcase the diverse cultural aspects of Chinese communities around the world

SCFF films are selected predominantly from Mainland China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, and Taiwan. These films are screened in their original languages, including the different Chinese dialects. In addition, SCFF also screens non-Chinese language films that are made by ethnic Chinese filmmakers.

Key Events

MINDS Film Festival

Since 2016, MINDS has sought to broadcast powerful, interwoven stories that spark conversations and create awareness to support persons with intellectual disability (PWIDs) and those diagnosed with autism. The medium of film can powerfully and effectively personify and convey the values and beliefs of this community in a way that no media can.

Over the years, the annual MINDS Film Festival has become a unique platform to showcase the meaningful narratives and uplifting possibilities that PWIDs experience. It hopes to build an inclusive community for our differently-abled friends with the support of the community.

Key Events

Ethics Film Festival

First launched in 2017, the ACCA Ethics Film Festival aims to bring together a community of like-minded professionals to discuss and address ethical issues and challenges embedded in the finance industry. The festival will advocate ethics and how professional accountants are custodians of trust in an increasing digital age.

The festival aims to promote conversations amongst the public and private sectors about Ethics – an integral principle of any finance professional. It will influence and shape the accountancy profession – as economies evolve in this digital age.

Key Events

SHIRKERS

In celebration of our 60th anniversary, SFS collaborated with Netflix to organise the premiere of Sundance Award-winning SHIRKERS.

SHIRKERS was exclusively released on Netflix, and we’ve had the amazing opportunity to organise a physical screening of this film (one of only two theatrical screenings in Singapore, both organised by SFS).

The film premiered in the historic Capitol theatre, coupled with an outdoor exhibition, musical performances, and appearances by the director Sandi Tan, and the cast and crew of the film.

Key Events

ROMA

In 2018, in collaboration with Netflix, SFS organised a theatrical screening of ROMA in Filmgarde Cineplexes, with internationally renowned director Alfonso Cuarón, who flew into Singapore for a dialogue session with the audience.

Local director Boo Junfeng moderated the Q&A and the audience was able to gain exclusive insight to behind-the-scenes of ROMA. It was a captivating, engaging and educational dialogue session, with many questions from the audiences.
