Singapore's second-longest running film festival is back for its 24th year!
I was invited to a media preview of the Academy Award winning Italian film "The Great Beauty" at the School of Film & Media Studies, Ngee Ann Polytechnic. Directed by Paolo Sorrentino, this visually stunning Italian film won an Oscar for the Best Foreign Language Film. It will be the opening film for 24th EUFF.
