“A Design Film Festival Singapore 2016”, which has been started since 2010, will be held from September 3rd to 11th, 2016.
It features screenings of a curated collection of films dedicated to architecture, fashion, photography, street art, motion graphics, technology and the subcultures of design. This year, From over 130 submissions, 8 films that reflect the zeitgeist of the design landscape have been selected this year.
A Design Film Festival with no branding and no theme is a quiet irony. The creative impulse naturally tends towards abundance and grand designs in its full expression, and chaos and surfeit in its most unskilled. Having no theme and no design is not nihilistic; it is rather to clarify, to let go of the extraneous, to come to the essential and the essence, the silence and emptiness from which creating can be born.
