In these complex and unprecedented times, the safety of each and every one of our stake-holders, our student volunteers and cine-lovers who make the festival what it is, is of utmost importance to us. We intend to continue working closely with our venue partner National Gallery Singapore and return with an even stronger festival next year.”
