Perspectives Film Festival

Perspectives Film Festival is a practicum created to expose students to curating and executing a film programme and is also the first ever student-run film festival in Singapore. The annual arts event features breakthrough films that are thematically curated. Students organise the film festival from start to finish, beginning with developing the initial concept debating as a group about the theme and film selections based on fit with the breakthrough premise, potential audience, sponsorship interests and promotional opportunities. Working in teams, students then source the films, secure sponsors, develop appropriate ancillary activities, manage ticketing and finances, develop written collaterals for a variety of audiences, produce publicity materials and undertake promotion efforts.

In 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Perspectives Film Festival went virtual for the first time in its 13 year history. Centred around the theme, "Truth", the festival showcased a lineup of films that examined potential blind spots in one's perceptions of truth, across 10 days.
