Perspectives Film Festival 2008

The Film Lover’s Guide To Living Well

The festival’s inaugural year was a retrospective exploration of Singaporean films from the 1960s – the Golden Age of local cinema. Opening with Singapore’s first Chinese-language film Lion City (1960), the festival curated films that stand as cinematic landmarks in our homegrown industry. Highlights include P. Ramlee’s Seniman Bujang Lapok (1961) and B.N. Rao’s Sumpah Pontianak (1958).
