Part of the upcoming Singapore International Film Festival (which runs from Nov 21 to Dec 1), the organisers have gathered 9 local film and media personalities to put on a multi-media exhibition that showcases their self-portraits inspired by nature. And it’s an impressive group they’ve gathered – names include filmmakers Kirsten Tan (Pop Aye), Yeo Siew Hua (A Land Imagined), actress Oon Shu An, Yeo Yann Yann (Ilo Ilo), art photographer John Clang and playwright and poet Alfian Sa’at.

Nature’s Playground takes place Oct 25 – Dec 1 at Colonnade (Supertree Grove) @ Gardens by the Bay. Admission is free.
