The seemingly distinct lines between music and film are blurred as Film/Music takes centre stage in this programme for the Singapore Night Festival 2015. Come join us for an exciting night as we explore the synergy between both mediums through screenings of music videos by Singapore musicians, video projections and music performances. The musicians will be improvising on their current songs based on their own interpretation of experimental film footage, which will be screened as well.

Curated by Objectifs and Electric Milk, Film/Music features an audio/visual collaborative showcase between filmmaker Yeo Siew Hua and musicians, .gif and Intriguant
