Frequently Asked Questions

 

GENERAL

What is Perspectives Film Festival?

Perspectives Film Festival is the first and longest-running student-run film festival in Singapore since 2008. It is organised by students from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) as part of a practicum conducted by the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information.  

 

When are the festival dates?

23 October 2020 to 1 November 2020.   

 

Where will the festival be held?

Perspectives Film Festival goes virtual this year so you can enjoy film screenings within the comfort of your own home, at your own time. We have partnered with The Projector to bring you our virtual festival, and films in our line-up can be watched on their virtual platform The Projector Plus. For more information, please visit The Projector Plus’ FAQ page.   

 

Who can attend the film screenings?

Each film is rated in accordance with IMDA’s ratings guidelines, and standard cinema age advisories apply on the online platform as well. The ratings for each film are available at www.perspectivesfilmfestival.com.  

 

Is the festival open to film submissions?

Perspectives Film Festival is a curated festival and thus not open to film submissions.

TICKETING

How do I buy tickets?

All ticket purchases can be made at our festival’s page on The Projector Plus. To purchase tickets, simply create or log into your Projector Plus account.  

 

When are films available for purchase?

Films are available for purchase from 10 October. Please check this space for the latest updates on ticket sales.  

 

How much are tickets priced at? 

Each standard ticket costs SGD 8.  Viewers can also purchase bundles of 3 or 5 different films from the line up at SGD 18 and SGD 28 respectively.  

 

How do I collect my tickets?

No physical ticket collection will be required. Films that have been purchased will be available via your account with The Projector Plus during the festival period.  

 

What are the payment methods available?

You may make payment via VISA, MasterCard or American Express.  

 

What time are the film screenings?

Films are available throughout the 10-day festival. You may purchase a ticket and begin to watch the film of your choice anytime, anywhere. All purchased films can be viewed for 48 hours after pressing ‘Play’ on the platform from 23 October, 7pm onwards.  

 

How long may I view the film screenings for?

You may view each film for up to 48 hours. More specifically, this 48-hour window only begins once you press ‘Play,’ not from the time of purchase transaction. For instance, if you purchase a ticket on 23 October without pressing the ‘Play’ button on the film, you have up till 1 November (11.59pm) to watch the film. However, if you purchase a ticket on 23 October and have already pressed ‘Play’ on the film, this film will expire in 48 hours on 25 October.  Viewers are advised to complete watching the entirety of their purchased films before the end of the 1 November 2020, 2359, as no refunds will be made for incomplete viewings.   

 

I am experiencing technical difficulties and can’t view my film on The Projector Plus.
