Women Take Centre Stage at the 'Women in Film & Photography' Showcase at Objectifs.

By InCinemas  /  16 Oct 2015 (Friday)

The Women in Film & Photography Showcase at Objectifs is a tribute to the artists, photographers and filmmakers who have created works that tell stories with impact, break boundaries and inspire us. 


In this inaugural edition of Women in Film, the films of Singaporeans Kirsten Tan and Sun Koh, Thai Pimpaka Towira and Japanese Naoko Ogigami will be featured.

These women filmmakers have been creating consistently great work through their careers, winning accolades for their films, and garnering acclaim at international film festivals and in their own respective countries.

These films offer a representation of their works thus far as filmmakers, from their first film to their latest. Ranging from short experimental films to feature documentaries, the films illustrate their unique voices and independent filmmaking spirit.

Some of the film highlights include:

Roxy & Susanne (dir. by Kirsten Tan) - World premiere

Kirsten Tan was featured in CNN International ‘Ones to Watch’ in 2015, and her recent short film is a documentary about Roxy and Susanne and their 40-year old love story. It will be making its world premeire screening at Women in Film!


Singapore Panda (dir. by Sun Koh) - Rotterdam Film Festival 2014, Busan Film Festival 2014

A short film about immigration, Chinese diaspora and the present day globalization of Singapore. Sun Koh is a prolific short filmmaker, who made her debut in 2002 with the widely acclaimed The Secret Heaven.


Megane (dir. Naoko Ogigami) - Winner of the Manfred Salzberger Award at the 2008 Berlin Film Festival

A black comedy about a stressed out career woman who sets out on a vacation to a sparsely populated island where everybody is wearing glasses. With understated humour, the meticulously framed film observes how she learns to adapt to an almost surreal set of rules that govern the otherwise empty inn where she is staying. Naoko was recognised for “broadening the boundaries of cinema today” by the Berlin Film Festival.


Apart from films, don't miss the Asian Women Photographers' Showcase (AWPS) where works for this showcase were selected in an international open call process, and the selection reflects the diversity and complexity of issues pursued by Asian women photographers in recent years.
