The CityPossible Film Festival

In conjunction with our conference, we have organized a film fest. The screening will take place on Tuesday 4 December from 6 to 10pm, at the SubStation in Singapore.

Our point of departure was: What is the possible city? Today the vision of a city is all too often filled with promotions of placeless architecture at inhuman scales and landscapes of nowhere that relentlessly diminish the public city as it gives way to privatized zones of franchised consumption and corporate management. The CityPossible FilmFestival brings together the stories of people who have joined together to resist the loss of their life-spaces and to remake the city through their own visions of what could be. From the street corner to the metropolis, these films inspire us as we celebrate the human spirit through cinema.
