30 for 30
On top of the Festival run, the Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF) also conducts several year-long education programmes to support budding filmmakers and nurture film appreciation in youths.
The SGIFF Film Academy supports budding filmmakers with mentorship programmes, cultivates creative collaborations and also conducts immersive programmes to introduce the art of film in schools throughout Singapore.
The SGIFF Film Immersion Programme (FIP) brings prominent members of the film community to educational institutes to expose students to Singaporean and Southeast Asian stories; Stories that are relatable and relevant in their lives. In 2018, we directly impacted over 500 youths and in 2019, we have reached over triple that number (1,500).
As we celebrate our 30th anniversary, we are reinvigorated by the Festival’s purpose and mission. By championing the voices of our youth, we make it possible for the next generation to step up and tell our stories. For our filmmakers today and the filmmakers of tomorrow, we have started our 30-for-30 campaign to raise $30,000 for our education and outreach programmes in 2020.
