SGIFF 2015 officially kicks off with our Opening Film, Panay, on Thursday, 26 Nov – check out this album for complete coverage of the Panay screening and Q&A session.

Other than the directors and cast of Panay, others who attended the Opening Night include the original cast of Bugis Street, the director and cast of The Laundryman, as well as filmmakers Sanif Olek (Voluptas), Ng Xi Jie (Singapore Minstrel), Nicole Midori Woodford (For We Are Strangers), and more.

Perhaps the most memorable moment of the night: before the Q&A session started, some of the Panay cast members came out decked in traditional Amis clothing – a fitting end after such an emotional, heartwarming film.
