SGIFF: Sepet & One Two Jaga in Singapore!

EDIT: In case the SGIFF is down due to too many people going in, you can buy your tickets here:

The cast of Sepet will be in Singapore!

Get your ticket for the screening here:

Basic ticket is $12 (excluding booking fees).

It’s been at least 14 years since this movie premiered but it has so much feels.

Catch the screening on 2 DEC 2018, SUN on 2:00 PM at the NATIONAL MUSEUM OF SINGAPORE.

Sharifah Amani and Ng Choo Seong will be at this screening including Yasmin Ahmad’s sister, Orked.

There will be a Q&A session after the screening.

They will also be selling a limited number of merchandise and yeah this is the only time you can get it autographed by them. The only other way to get these books and stuff is to go to Ipoh and it’s not guaranteed that you can find all the cast and stuff again.

If you don’t know what’s the story of Sepet… well, please come watch. I don’t want to spoil you even after 14 years.

For something more contemporary, check out Crossroads: One Two Jaga

The director Nam Ron and his producer will be both introducing the film and doing a Q&A after the screening. This movie is pretty much telling the issues that we face now and I think it’s getting on Netflix too? At least from what I heard.

It’s on at 4 DEC 2018, TUE on 9:30 PM at NATIONAL GALLERY SINGAPORE.

If you guys are coming by to watch them, come by to say hi to me. Especially on the first one, I think I’ll be carrying a bag to carry the books home…

A fan’s hope!

Fancy tickets

It’s the Singapore Design Film Festival 2013 and I managed to catch Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope! Firstly, this was held at the School of the Arts and secondly, woah. Look at the tickets. The one in gold font is the ticket holder. Paper’s by RJ Paper.

I get it yes

Yes,  design film festival, I get it. It was really designerish.


This is presented by Anonymous. Maaan, that’s so designer.

The audience!

Anyway while it wasn’t sold out, it was a packed theatre! And then the movie started and it was just… So good! There was a brief cameo by Here Be Geeks too since they went during the year it was filming.

You had the perspectives of the comic artists to be, the collectors, the fans, the cosplayers, the shop owners! Basically the people who made up Comic Con and it’s just so wow.

If you ever wanted to go there, well then the title is really well named because it really is a fan’s hope! A hope to be in the comic business, a hope to survive it. A hope to make a great show. A hope to make lasting friendships or more! It’s just so AWWWWW.

Hey Papa Palheta's here!

And it finished. The full movie was 1 hour and 26 minutes but it didn’t feel like it and the ending was just so awwwwww. Meanwhile Papa Palheta along with Books Actually were there by the ticket counters. The coffee was priced by how much you tipped! And the books were of course tagged as usual.

Anyway the Japanese Film Fest will be starting on 26 June so check that out if you wanna see non-mainstream movies. They even have RENT A CAT!
