A new place to watch independent films in Singapore will soon open.
Starting September 2012, film buffs will be able to catch a wide array of feature films and shorts created by Singaporean filmmakers as well as foreign directors at the centrally-located Golden Village cinemas at Great World City.
GV Grand will apportion a dedicated four-hour time slot from 6.30pm to 10.30pm, every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month for regular programmed screenings by indie film enthusiast group Sinema.
Sinema had been operating at Old School on Mount Sophia since 2007 and was a popular and favourite haven among film enthusiasts for its various film festivals and arts events. The independent movie theatre closed its doors in December.
Sinema's co-founder, Nicholas Chee said that he hopes to drive higher levels of awareness and patronage among the local movie-watching community to the line-up of films that will be showcased at the new location.
This collaboration between Sinema and Golden Village is expected to promote works of Singaporean independent filmmakers and directors and help improve the local creative film making industry.
