About the Festival

Perspectives Film Festival 2015: Breakthroughs in Cinema is all about “Transition” — taking a step into the unknown and going on an adventure. From child refugees at the Iraqi-Turkish border to the drag queens in the great Australian Outback, the characters of this year’s films will trigger something in you, even if their worlds are nothing like yours.

Now in its eighth year, Perspectives Film Festival is an annual practicum course run by the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information (WKWSCI), and organised by undergraduates from Nanyang Technological University (NTU).

Festival Directors' Message

Life is a _____ journey.

While we invite you to fill that blank with an adjective, Perspectives Film Festival 2015 is all about this adventure. Take the three zesty characters in The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994) who traverse the desert seeking answers. Or the single mother in Mommy (2014) who shows us strength in every facet of the struggle, and a life worth living for.

These are just some of the films in our exciting lineup for Perspectives Film Festival this year. From the landmark British animation Watership Down (1978), to essential works of world cinema like Ballad of Narayama (1958), we promise an unforgettable journey with the medium we love.
