Ambassade de France (The French Embassy)
One of the main missions of the French Embassy is to support the exposure and promotion of French cinema in Singapore. To do so, the Embassy is co-responsible with Alliance Francaise for the programming of movie screening at Alliance- including the jointly organised screenings with SFS.
The French Embassy is also supporting the screening of French movies, as well as movies co-produced by France and French-speaking countries, in festivals such as the Singapore International Film Festival. The Embassy is also aiming at building a reciprocal exchange between French and Singapore film industries, supporting tie-ups, commercial releases of French films in movie theatres, on TV or DVDs and VCDs, as well as co-production projects.
The British Council
Promoting cultural, educational and technical cooperation between Britain and other countries. Our longest-running film festival partner.
Embassy of Japan
The Embassy of Japan in Singapore has been the Singapore Film Society's partner in co-organizing the Japanese Film Festival since 1983. Japanese movies remain among the most popular of the Society's repertoire. Mutual enrichment of cultural understanding has developed greatly over the years. Highlights include the visit of renowned film critic Tadao Sato to Singapore in 1995, when he gave two lectures as part of the Festival that year.
The unique 'cultural-entertainment partnership' between Singapore's longest-established cultural film organization and Asia's leading multiplex operator started in 1994 when the Film Society was approached by Golden Village to work together on the National Speak Mandarin Campaign.
A new paradigm in local arts management was established, with Golden Village offering not only its state-of-the-art multiplex cinemas as film festival venues, but also its marketing expertise and operations infrastructure, with the result that the Film Society's attendance and membership base, previously limited to a more select 'elite' group, grew steadily by as much as 35% per year.
On September 21, 1996, the Film Society co-organized the official opening of Golden Village Marina with Ann Hui's The Story Of A Stunt Woman, graced in person by lead actress Michelle Yeoh, and marking the Society's historic move to its new permanent home.
Golden Village, apart from being the market leader in film exhibition in Singapore, is truly the Singapore Film Society's benefactor, partner, and very special friend. Synonymous with The Best Cinemas In The Entire World, Golden Village now hosts Singapore Film Society at its flagship location - offering The Widest Choice Of International Movies At The Most Beautiful Cinemas In The World!
