Tickets to the official three-day public premiere of SG50 film 7 Letters were snapped up within hours upon release. If you didn’t manage to get any, here’s some good news: The film will have additional screenings from 8 to 10 August 2015 at the Gallery Theatre in the National Museum of Singapore (NMS), the filmmakers announced Monday morning at a media preview.
To be shown over the National Day weekend, there will be only one screening at 11am each day and just like the premiere, tickets will not be priced and are available on a first-come-first-served basis at the NMS front desk on 1st and 2nd August, 10am to 6pm. The public is encouraged to donate at the door, with all proceeds going to the seven beneficiaries selected by each of the filmmakers.
Also announced is a limited edition DVD Set of 7 Letters that was designed by Larry Peh, recipient of the 2014 President’s Design Award. This limited edition set includes a DVD of 7 Letters, insights into each of the seven short films, as well as personal mementos from the directors such as old photographs and handwritten notes about the creative process and inspiration behind the films.
The Set is priced at S$200 each and can be purchased during the Gala Premiere screenings at the Capitol Theatre from 24 to 26 July. Only 1,000 copies are available for sale, and all proceeds will again go to the seven beneficiaries.
The seven organisations are: Alzheimer’s Disease Association, Children-At-Risk Empowerment Association, Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore, PERTAPIS Senior Citizens Fellowship Home, Singapore Buddhist Lodge Welfare Foundation, Student Care Service and Transient Workers Count Too.
