The first edition of the Singapore International Film Festival was held in 1987. It was the first major ‘film’ showcase to take place in Singapore and it was truly independent, created by a small group of passionate people who wanted to expand the horizons of cinema for local audiences. As the 25th edition of the festival looms, this publication takes a clear look back – through articles, interviews and images – on the festival’s past, gathering together histories and memories, stories and insights into how the festival came to be, it’s growth, the spaces and places it inhabited, the struggles that were part of its existence, and the profound impact it had on both cinema-going and film-making in Singapore.

Featuring articles by Ho Tzu Nyen, Sandi Tan, Toh Hun Ping, Jan & Yvonne Uhde; interviews with Philip Cheah, Anisah Hadid, Lesley Ho, Nisar and Nasir Keshvani, Kong Kam Yoke, Lok Meng Chue, Neo Kim Seng, Vinita Ramani, Skip Whitney; an Introduction by Ben Slater and Afterwords by Yuni Hadi and Zhang Wenjie.

Complete your bookshelf with this essential compendium that recollects a slice of SGIFF history and parallels the state of Singapore cinema.
