Monday, Dec 7, 2020



Sementara, a film directed by Grad Film alumni Chew Chia Shao Min and Joant Úbeda, won the Audience Choice Award at the 31st Singapore International Film Festival.

Amid the noisy spectacle of Singapore’s golden jubilee celebrations in 2015, filmmakers Chew Chia Shao Min and Joant Úbeda conduct casual interviews with people from different walks of life, each with their own set of values and beliefs. SGIFF called the film “a compelling yet sensitive portrayal of Singapore” with “scenes of profound subjectivities and societal structures...punctuated with serendipitous poetic moments.”

The festival marked Sementara’s World Premiere.
