Singapore Panorama

Singapore Panorama is one of the most anticipated and talked about sections of the Festival, enjoying sold-out screenings and extended post-show discussions with the directors in attendance. Introduced in 2008 as a platform for the newest local films, Singapore Panorama has its finger on the pulse of the latest and most exciting developments in Singapore Cinema.

This year, the Festival also celebrates the 15th year anniversary of two iconic films of Singapore cinema – I Not Stupid and TalkingCock The Movie – two irreverent social satires sparkling with originality and confidence as they poke good-natured fun at Singaporeans, their obsessions and local politics.
