New Waves shines a spotlight on young filmmakers who are making waves through the archipelago, forming an emerging community within Southeast Asia. Join them in a series of dialogues with Singaporean artists, writers and curators from different disciplines, as they recollect their entrance into cinema, their unique and personal approaches in utilising film as a mode of expression, and its convergence with other art forms and everyday life. Come participate in these open dialogue sessions to find out more about this emerging community of filmmakers in anticipation of the 28th edition of the Singapore International Film Festival end-2017.
New Waves is a programme by the Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF), with Programme Partner SCAPE and Festival Hotel ibis Singapore on Bencoolen. SGIFF is an event of the Singapore Media Festival.
