Archifest presents Singapore Stories - five films that capture the zeitgeist of an emerging Singapore, directed by Singaporean documentary talent. From a daily battle with birds on Orchard Road, urban farming, and the art of card flourishing; to a celebration of one of Singapore’s oldest housing estates and the creation of the island nation's first-ever marine park, these topics – told from the filmmakers’ unique perspectives – showcase the new directions that are setting the themes for a brand new Singapore, confident of its next stage as a nation that has just entered its 50th year of independence. Singapore Stories are part of Discovery Channel's on-going First Time Filmmakers initiative, which is targeted at up-and-coming directors.
The screenings are FREE and all are welcome.

MAN VS. BIRDS
This part-science, part-observational documentary offers a quirky perspective on an age-old turf war waged between man and nature.
WILD CARDS casts the spotlight on a Singapore-based collective that practices the specialized art of card flourishing.
This documentary showcases the people behind the urban farms that have been mushrooming amidst the glass and steel towers of Singapore’s concrete jungle.
BIRTH OF A MARINE PARK
Off the shores, away from the glittering skyline of the city, Singapore maintains one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes. Yet its waters hide a little-known secret: a rich bio-habitat harbouring diverse marine life.
Built in 1958, Dakota Crescent is one of Singapore’s oldest public housing estates. It still stands, in spite of an ever-modernising landscape. The vintage design of the blocks and even its old-school playground have attracted a new generation of Singaporeans eager to relive the country’s nostalgic past.
