The fifth edition of “Watch Local: First Short, First Feature” is back at Objectifs Centre For Photography And Film. From 23 Feb – 4 Mar, film buffs can enjoy free screenings of local Singaporean feature films (you can register here). Each night focuses on a different Singapore filmmaker revealing the creative journeys from their first short film to their first feature.
One of the highlights is Boo Junfeng’s Sandcastle, which was the first Singaporean film to be invited to the International Critics’ Week at Cannes Film Festival. They’ll also be post-screening discussions to give you a better idea of how the filmmakers have honed their craft. Lucy Rees recommends six to watch.
