ShoutOUT! : Perspectives Film Festival returns 15th October
The annual Perspectives Film Festival (PFF) explores a new theme for Breakthroughs in Cinema in its eighth edition. The festival will run from 15th to 18th October 2015 at the National Museum of Singapore, with an international lineup of films across various cultures and time periods.
The theme for this year’s PFF is “Transition” — taking a step into the unknown and going on an adventure. The curated films explore various terrains to immerse yourself in, from minefields at the Iraqi-Turkish border to the great Australian Outback. Opening the festival is Canadian director Xavier Dolan’s drama Mommy (2014), winner of the Cannes Film Festival’s Jury Prize. Starring Anne Dorval and Antoine-Olivier Pilon as a dynamic mother-son duo, the unorthodox 1:1 aspect ratio of the film harkens back to Dolan’s previous body of work that explores the complexity of human nature and relationships.
Beyond the cinematic experience, the festival has an exciting range of activities before and during the festival. In particular, acclaimed British director Martin Rosen, of Watership Down (1978), will lend insight into his creative process with a post-screening dialogue and an animation masterclass.
Perspectives Film Festival 2015 is proud to present the following films in its main programme:
Mommy (Dir. Xavier Dolan, 2014)

About Perspectives Film Festival
Perspectives Film Festival — Breakthroughs in Cinema is an annual practicum course run by the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information (WKWSCI), and organised by undergraduates from Nanyang Technological University (NTU). Each edition takes on a fresh theme that unites all screened films with a common thread. Previous themes include brazen explorations of sexuality (2012), as well as the idea of displacement and adrift surroundings (2014).
