Time Out says

Dive into the world of alternative cinema with Perspectives Film Festival. The student-led event returns with more thought-provoking indie titles and lesser-known gems for its 14 edition from October 21 to 31. Largely hosted on The Projector Plus, this year's edition includes one physical screening too. 

This year's lineup features nine international films, including two Asian premieres and five local premieres, under the theme of 'WHAT THE..?!'. These cinematic experiments defy traditional filmmaking – they make elicit a bewildered scratch of the hand, some exclamation and exasperation, but help you to see beyond technical, narrative and moral conventions. 

Look forward to titles such as Annette, winner of Best Director and The Cannes Soundtrack Award at The Cannes Film Festival 2021, by French director Leos Carax. Starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard, the film is a whirlwind musical that follows the passionate relationship between a stand-up comedian and a world-renowned opera singer – and their mysterious puppet child who turns their lives upside down. 

Others not to miss include Strawberry Mansion – named the Best Film by the Independent Visions Award at the Sundance Film Festival, it's a tender love story set in 2035 where dreams are audited by a surveillance state; Tigers Are Not Afraid, a magical realist film where children abandoned in the midst of Mexico's drug war are forced to fend for themselves; and The River, a 1997 film by Tsai Ming-liang that begins when the protagonist develops a mysterious sore in his neck after filming in a dirty river.

Tickets are available online from $7 per film, with a 48-hour window viewing upon purchase. There are also purchase bundles of three different films at $16. For more information including the full lineup, visit perspectivesfilmfestival.com.
