Art in Film Festival at Dusk 2013
On my way to Tanjong Beach Club….
When was the last time you caught a film, with toes in the sand, head in the clouds?
Welcome to the Art in Film Festival at Dusk, where art buffs and curious cats enjoy the freedom to lounge, watch and gorge on film, food and festivity! All on the sandy beaches of Sentosa!
This year’s inaugural event showcased an array of interesting, award-winning art films and documentaries:
Had a delish fish & chips dinner at the TBC restaurant before heading over to the beckoning twinkling lights, where the rows of deck chairs awaited movie-goers.
AFFD is a cinematic experience that fuses film with improvised performances, art and food.
These girls were a human “popcorn vending machine”, give them your ticket and enjoy the little performance as they churn out your packet of popcorn!
The film playing that night:
I’m a huge fan of his fascinating & complex work! Powerful, neoexpressionism in a distinctive graffiti style.
Who needs a mega cineplex when you can do the same thing.. but with the ocean breeze under the stars?
The Radiant Child was a very engaging documentary about the brilliant Jean-Michel, the pulsating art world of New York City in the 90s, his struggles as a black artist…and his ultimately tragic death. I highly recommend you find it and watch it!
If I could, I would have gone down for more screenings of the other docu-films AFFD had selected. All top-notch, critically-acclaimed. And, the beach experience was truly memorable and wonderful. Gold Class in nature I can only wait till next year’s festival! x
