Silver Screen Awards

Celebrating our 2020 Silver Screen Awards winners!

Introduced in 1991, the Silver Screen Awards was the first international competition with a category dedicated to Asian cinema. It aims to draw attention to filmmaking talent from across Asia, with a particular focus on Southeast Asia. Many of its nominees and awardees have since established themselves among the region’s most prominent filmmakers.

This year, despite great upheaval and challenges for filmmakers, SGIFF has decided to reinforce the spirit of the Silver Screen Awards, pressing ahead with two film competitions and two programmes from the Film Academy to encourage and keep alive cinematic storytelling, cherishing film as a form of art for better times.
