A Design Film Festival Singapore 2014(DFFSG2014), which has been started since 2010, will be held from September 5th – 14th, 2014.

It features screenings of a curated collection of films dedicated to architecture, fashion, photography, street art, motion graphics, technology and the subcultures of design. Design is a broad subject that continues to evolve and be redefined constantly. The list goes on and on. This year, we’ve poured through over 100 films (up from 70 last year) to select the 12 films presented this year. What makes the cut? Films that are relevant, entertaining and timely.

DFFSG2014’s theme is “On a Scale of Art to Design,” and it derived from an observation of the blurring boundaries between art and design. In recent years, it has become increasingly difficult to differentiate or maintain a clear distinction between art and design with many designers creating art and many artists applying design in their works. To engage the theme, a small selection of the films to be screened, have been specifically chosen to expose the audience to content that directly address the blurred boundaries. The objective of the Curated Shorts is to establish a discourse between Art and Design and provoke a reaction from the audience.
