Singapore World International Film Festival is dedicated to showcasing the spirit, passion, and skill of the best new filmmakers from around the world for audiences around the world. We are also including and actively supporting not only the finest examples of classic moviemaking, but works that are experimental, breaking ground in new non-narrative forms and crossing over into the video arts. All films will be reviewed as they are  submitted, and the best in each category will be chosen to screen at the festival. A jury of industry professionals will then view the finalists and choose the winning selections. Filmmakers planning on attending should notify the film festival as soon as possible, so their names may be listed in the scheduled program at the venue where their film will be shown. A substantial number of accredited national and international press, TV and film buyers and distributors also participate. Final jurors for the World International Film Festival will come from a selection of industry professionals in film production, distribution, new media.

Singapore is a singular city state, and one of the richest countries in the world. Often referred to as a European City slap bang in the middle of South East Asia, it is as modern as it is beautiful - with a diverse and cultural vain. As the network grows, it becomes more and more prudent for our filmmakers to have their work shown in some of the best markets on the planet. Singapore is home to millions of would be executive producers looking to build connections within the film industry through the exciting investment in talent, that only financing a movie could bring.
