PUFF (Pineapple Underground Film Festival) is back this year, celebrating indie filmmakers and writers from around the world through a series of programmes, screenings and after-parties. This year, the event will take place from 6 to 16 July 2017 where three PUFF Indie Awards will be given out at the end of the festival.
Organised by independent filmmaker Gina Wong, PUFF is all about filmmaking at its best with edgy brilliant stories. The films selected for PUFF showcase filmmakers who are passionate about their craft and mostly are done without a need for big budgets or explosive effects. At the same time, PUFF aims to encourage female filmmakers to submit their films for selection by giving them initiatives and production support.
The festival kicks off with The Rebel Female Filmmakers Screening where audiences will be shown several films throughout the night by female filmmakers from around the world, like a Patch of Mud by Cheh Yang 18minutes, The Utopians by Swetlana Sukhanovwa, 30mins, Noreyonce by Elaine Wong, 10mins, The Scope of Seperation by Chen Yue 1hour 13mins, Road to Day Dream Mine by Gina Wong 10mins, Melanie by Susanne Helmer 1 hr 12 mins, Memory 111 of a city by Gloria Chung, 11mins 50sec and Phantom of 20C by Elaine Wong, 3 mins 22 sec).
