The Singapore Chinese Film Festival is back! Jointly organised by the Singapore University of Social Sciences’ Centre for Chinese Studies and Singapore Film Society, the festival is now in its seventh year, and will run from Apr 18 to 28.
The opening film is the Anthony Wong-starring Still Human drama which recently took home three honours at the Hongkong Film Awards, including Best Actor for Wong as a paraplegic who strikes up a friendship with his maid.
The closing film is In Our Time, the 1982 anthology film by Taiwanese New Wave auteurs Edward Yang, Chang Yi, Ko Yi-Cheng and Tao Te-Chen, each telling a story set in a different decade between 1950 and 1980.
All in all, there are over 60 features, documentaries and shorts to catch, including post-screening Q&A sessions and panel talks with select filmmakers. Tix at $13.50 ($10.50 for Singapore Film Society and Singapore University of Social Sciences Centre members).
