Faces of SGIFFriends

SGIFF is a charity committed to championing and nurturing Asian cinematic storytelling. We believe in the soft power of film as a tool to discuss historical and contemporary issues, and shape society as a whole.

With ticket sales covering an estimated 10% of our operating costs, SGIFF relies on the generosity and support from individual donors, to continue our mission of nurturing and championing homegrown talents, and to make new discoveries in the art of filmmaking.

In return, donors (of donations $100 and above) become SGIFFriends, who are the first to hear about our latest projects, receive tax benefits for eligible donations, early access and discounted tickets to the festival, festival merchandise, and much more!

Faces of SGIFFriends is a series about individuals who have contributed to and shaped the festival in tangible and intangible ways, through the years. Here, we shine a light on this supportive community of friends and share some of their SGIFF stories.
