ABOUT MINDS FILM FESTIVAL
In the last three years, MINDS (Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore) has sought to broadcast powerful, interwoven stories that spark conversations and create awareness to support persons with intellectual disability (PWIDs) and those diagnosed with autism. The medium of film can powerfully and effectively personifies and conveys the values and beliefs of this community, in a way that no media can.
Tickets are priced at only $6 (Public) and $5 (Singapore Film Society Film Addicts & GV Movie Club Members)
This year, for the first time ever – MINDS Film Festival 2018 is privileged to receive sponsorship for the production of two locally commissioned short films, which will join the ranks of six other international films to be featured during the festival. The two local films are produced by Chuan Pictures and local award-winning filmmaker, Royston Tan. They dive into the resounding world of our own MINDS’ celebrated Taiko drum troupe as well as putting a spotlight on the sobering realities of a caregiver’s demise.
The festival also comprises a travelling exhibition to share many inspiring stories about MINDS’ beneficiaries. The aim is to advocate for PWIDs and educate the public about what an inclusive society that embraces and uplifts the ‘differently-abled’ can look like. Visit us at the following dates and locations!
