Dearest Fellow Cinephiles
The 8th Singapore Chinese Film Festival (SCFF) is happening now from October 2-11 this year!
COVID-19 has led to not just the postponement of SCFF, but also temporary closure of cinemas island wide that lasted for over three months. Going online became the only way to watch a movie then. Some who have realised the convenience and ease of online film screening, have continued to stay home for movies even when cinemas re-opened. To others, a cinema remains to be the best place to catch a movie.
The same can be said of filmmakers when it comes to the platform for showcasing their works. While some of them do not mind giving online screening a try, other filmmakers prefer the cinema still. To accommodate the diversity of movie goers and filmmakers, SCFF is adopting, for the first time, both online and in-cinema screening. Whichever platform it is, we hope that everyone gets to appreciate their selected movies comfortably and safely.
Also another first, SCFF is hosting all Q&A sessions with filmmakers virtually this year. COVID-19 may have pushed us out of our comfort zone, and what ensue are new possibilities brought about by technology. We will keep our new experience in mind, so as to bring to you an even better SCFF next year.
In the meantime, as you engross yourselves in the story and the cinematography of a film, we seek your support and cooperation in practising social distancing, mask wearing, and other necessary preventive measures. Let us all work towards a collective journey of enjoying a movie together in a worry-free environment.
We wish you the best of health, and a wonderful time at the 8th Singapore Chinese Film Festival!
