Cinema in Singapore


It was after the advent of independence in 1965 that Cinema in Singapore received a great set back. One of the main reasons behind the decline of film industry was the policy of the then government. It was during the period when the government paid utmost attention in strengthening the economic condition of the nation. There were a few films set in Singapore and the cast comprised of Singaporean actors. The films were Saint Jack and They Call Her Cleopatra Wong. However, these cannot be truly considered as Singaporean products as the films were not released in Singapore.

1991 saw the release of the first Singaporean film Medium Rare but it failed to make a great impact at the box office. The next movie was released in the year 1995, Bugis Street. The tight budget movie Mee Pok Man was also released in the same year and was a critically acclaimed film. Mee Pok Man worked as an inspiration for promoting experimental and independent filmmaking.

Army Daze released in 1996 continued the tradition of reaping high profits at the box office level. 12 Storeys came out in 1997 and was the first Singaporean cinema to be featured in Cannes. The other popular films released during 1997 and 1998 are Glenn Goei's Forever Fever, A Road Less Travelled, God or Dog, Tiger's Whip and Teenage Textbook Movie. The incredible success received by Money No Enough released in 1998 encouraged movie making in Singapore in a wider basis.
In the recent past Cinema industry in Singapore has done comparatively well and came out with a number of hit movies that boosted up the revenue earned at the box office. 2005 proved to be a mini-boom year for Singapore film industry and produced relatively good film both commercial and less mainstream offerings.
