Film Immersion Programme, SGIFF 2019

Adopt a School

Our Film Immersion Programme has impacted hundreds of students by exposing them to diverse storytelling methods, cultivating media literacy, building appreciation of the film medium and the creative process. Donate $3,000 on and adopt a school today!

We Create Access

Cinema is for everyone. There is magic when the lights dim and you are transported to a different place. It is also a springboard to share important issues and spark timely discussions. With your help, we are able to bring the best of cinema to our shores.

Bring Cinema to All
Despite rising costs, SGIFF has continually looked to subsidise instead of drastically increasing ticket prices as we believe film is for all. Each ticket barely covers bringing the film to cinemas so every donation is crucial in allowing us to keep ticket prices manageable for as wide an audience as possible! Head to and donate today!
