Singapore International Film Festival Launches Its First-Ever Fundraising Collaboration With Local Risograph Studio, Knuckles & Notch

19 August 2021, Singapore – Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF) is proud to announce its first-ever Fundraising Collaboration with local Risograph studio, Knuckles & Notch through a Limited Edition Risograph print, titled ‘Air Mata Kucing <3’.

Over the years, SGIFF has become iconic in bringing a vibrant film experience to the city and a deeper appreciation of Singapore’s cinematic culture. Unbeknownst to most, SGIFF is a non-profit organisation that aims to serve as a platform to showcase the best of Southeast Asian and local film, whilst championing the continued growth of cinematic talent through SGIFF Film Academy – the region’s first holistic training initiative to support Southeast Asian film talents and nurture film appreciation among the audience.
Funds will help SGIFF to continue to bring quality independent films with engaging and inspiring stories to our community and its developmental programmes to nurture the next generation of Singaporean & Southeast Asian storytellers.

So with every donation of $55 to SGIFF, one can now support making a difference to cinema and receive a limited edition Knuckles & Notch risograph print that takes you on a visual ride through some of the most iconic Southeast Asian films.

‘Air Mata Kucing <3’ is a commemoration of the Singapore film industry with its amalgamation of iconic film characters and legends. Depicted is a time warp – and merge – of significant moments from each of the 17 films obsessively watched, with a collage of different time periods, different directions, and intentions that takes the viewer back to specific scenes. It’s an immersion of stories, an insight into beloved characters, reinterpreted into a hodgepodge of cultures that mirrors the modern multicultural society of Singapore – all while offering a glimpse of the yesteryears through architectural and humanoid imagery. ‘Captured’ in the perspective of the filmmakers, the narrative, as they say, is up to the beholder. 

All our donations are routed through giving.sg, which means one gets an awesome art piece and a 250% tax deduction receipt!* Pre-orders are being taken & limited prints are available. Each piece will be individually numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
