Educators' Workshop
Introduction to Singapore Cinema
This workshop will introduce educators to the history of Singapore cinema and its industry spanning the last 100 years (1900s – 2000s). It will provide an insight on how Singapore films are relevant in the teaching of prevalent historical, political, socio-economic issues and the representation of the Singaporean identity. Using footage from Singapore films and case studies of different genres of films, participants will learn to decipher the perspective of the filmmakers and how their films have been shaped by the country’s ever changing environment.
