From Liang Seah to Middle Road - A 'Objectifs' Road Trip
Objectifs is possibly
the birthplace of several ‘moonlighting’ filmmakers and photographers in
Singapore. For people who held 9-5 jobs, Objectifs provided a chance to learn
these skills after dark and even on weekends. Of course, beyond just being a
school with flexible hours, it has grown to become an important institution in
the film and photography community and industry. Since its founding in 2003,
Objectifs has played a pivotal role in the development of contemporary
photography, video art and film in Singapore, with many artists learning,
teaching or showing at the centre. Famous directors like Yasmin Ahmad and Pen-Ek Ratanaruang have swung by and
lent their presence within the walls of Objectifs.
Thanks for the memories Emmeline!
