ABOUT THE EVENT

Founded in 1987, the Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF) is the largest and longest-running film event in Singapore. It has become an iconic event in the local arts calendar that is widely attended by international film critics, and known for its dynamic programming and focus on ground-breaking Asian cinema for Singapore and the region.

In its 28th edition this year, the SGIFF stays committed to nurture and champion local and regional talent.

OPENING FILM

Angels Wear white

The Festival opens its 28th edition with the second feature from independent Chinese director Vivian Qu, Angels Wear White. 
Angels Wear White is anchored through the perspectives of Mia, who realises the value of the information she holds; and Wen, a victim who finds no respite from a mother plunged into shameful despair. Constructed as a noir-tinged thriller, the film meanders around the periphery of the police procedural in trace of the act of violence and its trail of resounding affiliations, leading us to its insidious return.

SILVER SCREEN AWARDS

Red Carpet

The Silver Screen Awards aims to create awareness of the rich filmmaking talents throughout Asia and Southeast Asia, and pave the way for a Singapore film industry.

First introduced in 1991, the Silver Screen Awards was the first such international competition with a specific Asian film category; thus charting the rise of Asian Cinema and recognising the talents of new and upcoming filmmakers, many of whom were to become some of the most prominent filmmakers of our time.

The films in competition are previewed by an international jury and screened to the public throughout the Festival period, which culminates in the Silver Screen Awards presentation, held on 2 December 2017 at the Grand Theatre of Marina Bay Sands.
