Mundane History among early titles announced for Singapore International Film Festival

Mundane History (Jao Nok Krajok) is playing at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival and next heads to the Hong Kong fest, and Singapore fans get their chance to see it during the Singapore International Film Festival from April 15 to 24.

Anocha Suwichakornpong's Tiger Award-winning social drama is among the early titles tipped for SIFF. Others are the Japanese comedy Dear Doctor by Miwa Nishikawa (recently screened in Bangkok's Japanese Film Festival) and Jim Jarmusch's existential puzzler The Limits of Control, with cinematography by Christopher Doyle.

There will be "Women-centred films" but a "focus on Southeast Asia films is absent".

SIFF has lost a major sponsor, with Arthouse Films SG noting the absence of Citibank logos and saying "no more Citibank trailers this year".

Tickets are set to go on sale on March 26 at Sistic, with the full lineup hitting the festival website closer to that date.

Until then, check the fest's Facebook page.
