With the pandemic still happening, the Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA) has always had a backup plan in case things went awry for live performances. That comes in the form of SIFA On Demand – a video streaming service that allows everyone to experience SIFA from the comfort and safety of their homes after the festival ends.

With the number of audience members reduced for live performances due to the new Heightened Alert measures, it makes sense then that this service would be extended so that as many people can enjoy and experience what SIFA 2021 has to offer. Audiences can now enjoy seven films that were part of the Singular Screens 2021 lineup from the comfort of their own homes from 31st May to 12th June. Celebrating diverse, independent and singular visions from Singapore and around the world, discover a bold palette of cinematic adventures, featuring the ingenious and risk-taking in film. The films include:

• N.P
• There Are No False Undertakings
• If It Were Love
• The Year of the Discovery
• Ouvertures
• The Mole Agent
• Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets

Five concerts from the Compassion Chamber Music Series have also been filmed and newly added to SIFA-On-Demand. Together with seven of 2021’s Festival Commissions and selected SIFA v2.020, these recorded performances will be available from 5th to 20th June to viewers, both here and abroad:

• The Year of No Return by The Necessary Stage
• A Dream Under the Southern Bough: Existence by Toy Factory Productions
