After three consecutive years as Presenting Sponsor to the Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF), Marina Bay Sands reinforced its commitment to help nurture a vibrant Singapore film industry by welcoming SGIFF onboard as its newest designated charity in 2017.
The integrated resort has rolled out “In Conversation With” sessions, featuring renowned film practitioners, creating opportunities for budding film critics and writers under SGIFF’s Youth Jury & Critics Programme to learn from industry experts such as filmmaker Darren Aronofsky and actor Adrian Grenier.
This year, we introduce the Marina Bay Sands x SGIFF: Youth Film Project and ArtScience Museum Collaborations.

Clara is a trophy wife ‘tai tai’ who one day forgets to take her medication and ends up lingering on for days in the welcoming walls of her favourite space – shopping centres. There she crosses paths with a childhood flame, a latchkey kid and a cosplaying young man, and realises that she is far from alone as a creature of the mall. Gone Shopping is a tale of love, loss and liberation in the only heart Singapore has ever known.
