The 22nd Singapore International Film Festival (April 14-25) will open with Sincerely Yours from debuting Taiwanese feature director Rich Lee. The film explores the plight of illegal foreign workers in Taiwan with a multi-national cast.


第二十二屆新加坡國際影展(41425日舉行),開幕片將是台灣電影劇情片導演李奇的初試啼聲之作《歧路天堂》。此片探討台灣非法外籍勞工的困境,融合多國演員的演出。

The festival will close with Milk from Turkey, a "quietly stunning and poetic film about the relationship between a milkman and his mother" according to the festival.

閉幕片為來自土耳其的《牛奶》,根據影展主辦單位表示,這是一部靜靜讓人眼睛一亮且饒富詩意的片子,劇情關於一位牛奶商和他母親之間的關係。

In total the festival will screen 193 films from 34 countries including 25 world premieres and 34 Asian premieres. It is also launching the inaugural Singapore Film Awards to encourage local filmmakers. The competition nominated ten local films, several in multiple categories.

SIFF is also showcasing in the Silver Screen Awards competition several first or second feature films by Asian directors, including Singaporean Alec Tok's A Big Road.

新加坡國際影展也透過「銀幕獎」競賽,讓幾位只拍過一到兩部電影的亞洲導演在此亮相,其中包括新加坡電影《大道》(暫譯)

The Singapore Panorama section includes new features and shorts from filmmakers such as Boo Junfeng, Sun Koh and Jason Lai, and debut feature film Invisible Children from the prolific multimedia artist Brian Gothong Tan.

SIFF is also adding two tributes honouring 25 Years of the Thai National Film Archive and the Amos Gitai Retrospective from the Israeli filmmaker will include his latest One Day You'll Understand (2008) and Disengagement (2007), starring Juliette Binoche.

Festival director Wahyuni A Hadi commented: "The role of a film festival is to provide a cultural and social context to the films being screened. During this year's festival, we are presenting films from as far back as the twenties. It is important to mark the beginnings of cinema culture while also charting future directions."

Festival guests this year include Amos Gitai, Zhang Yuan, Russell Wong, Ananda Everingham and Nicholas Saputra.

The line-up also includes Still Walking, the new film from Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Koreeda (Nobody Knows), and Dada's Dance from Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yuan. Fans of Robert Pattinson from the vampire hit Twilight can catch him in How To Be, directed by British filmmaker Oliver Irving, while Julia Roberts and Willem Dafoe will be seen in Fireflies In The Garden which premiered at the Berlinale.

電影陣容還包括日本導演是枝裕和(《無人知曉的夏日清晨》)的新片《橫山家之味》,中國導演張元的《達達》。演出《暮光之城》的羅伯派汀森,粉絲們可以在英國導演Oliver Irving執導的《How To Be》中看到他的演出,想看茱莉亞羅勃茲和威廉達佛的影迷則要鎖定已在柏林影展首映過的《花園裡的螢火蟲》。

SIFF is also introducing open-air and late night weekend screenings to bring in more audiences.
新加坡國際影展同時也引進露天放映場和週末夜間放映場,盼能吸引更多的觀眾。
