Now in its 39th year, PIFF includes 97 features and 62 short films from three-dozen countries. Like the Film Center’s Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival, which surveys outstanding new work by our region’s media makers,The Portland International Film Festival explores not only the art of film but also the world around us, no matter the place or the language spoken. For full information about the Festival, check out http://festivals.nwfilm.org/piff39/ This screening brings us: 7 LETTERS DIRECTOR: VARIOUS - SINGAPORE Seven of Singapore’s most illustrious filmmakers, including Boo Junfeng, Eric Khoo, K Rajagopal, Jack Neo, Tan Pin Pin, Royston Tan, and Kelvin Tong, have gathered their creative storytelling and filmmaking talents to create a one-of-a-kind anthology that pays tribute to Singapore’s 50 years of independence. The resulting film, 7 Letters, offers thought-provoking pieces that revolve around tales of lost love, identity, familial bonds, traditional folklore, community, and more. The seven “letters” to Singapore are fascinating vignettes reflecting the personal and poignant relationship the directors—all award-winning filmmakers—have with the country they call home.
