3 More Days to Perspectives Film Festival 2013!

By InCinemas  /  01 Oct 2013 (Tuesday)

The countdown is on as Perspectives Film Festival: Breakthroughs in Cinema opens in less than 3 days, bringing you a weekend of all things bold and independent: five international films, a short-film showcase with local directors and a masterclass on independent film financing!

About Perspectives Film Festival 2013
This year, Perspectives Film Festival: Breakthroughs in Cinema presents Independent Cinema. The curated films went against the conventional mould and were made independently. As Scorsese put it, film is "a declaration" of one's self - telling stories that these filmmakers wanted to tell and filming it the way they wanted to.

Independent cinema has allowed filmmakers the freedom to do what they do best - producing creative films stamped with the directors' individual style and vision, thus providing unique cinematic experiences for the audience. The five features curated this year often had a long journey to the big screen, fighting budgetary constraints and challenging cinematic norms.
