The 2nd Toronto-Singapore Film Festival

If I tell people I know Toronto, I feel like I should be able to name every film festival in this city. Turns out, there are still festivals I never knew existed. In this case, a one-day, 8-movie showcase of cinema from Singapore on Saturday, March 17 at the University of Toronto in Innis Town Hall. For $5, any and all films can be viewed and to get fully into the spirit, Singaporean food will be sold.

More information can be found on the TSFF site, along with odd but useful Program Notes that go over what to expect at the fest. Here you'll find some political history of Singaporean cinema (useful) and an analogy involving bodily fluids (odd).

Based on the film description and this trailer, I'm most interested in Leonard Lai Yok Wai's feature, The High Cost of Living, an action film about hit men from opposite sides of the law.
