Perspectives Film Festival 2023

The 16th edition of Perspectives Film Festival: Breakthroughs in Cinema presents – Sound WAVE 

Sound, often neglected, serves as the backbone of a film’s sensory skeleton. Whether it’s a spellbinding silence drawn out longer than expected or a poignant lament resonating with deep sorrow, sound guides our sensibilities and transcends the boundaries of the visual screen to breathe life into an intricately crafted film-world.  

Listen attentively to the rich tapestries of culture, the evocative markers of status and performance, and the powerful voices of hope and frustration in PFF2023’s lineup. These are films that make full use of their distinct soundscapes, be it for defining their own genres or for exploring their characters’ inner psyche. Sound will be both map and treasure, unlocking new dimensions of storytelling in this year’s Perspectives Film Festival: Breakthroughs in Cinema.

Perspectives Film Festival: Breakthroughs in Cinema is Singapore’s first and longest-running student-led film festival. Organised by undergraduates from Nanyang Technological University (NTU), this festival is part of a practicum conducted by the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information (WKWSCI).
