MINDS has been caring for Persons with Intellectual Disability (PWIDs) and their families since 1962. Grounded in the belief that all PWIDs have innate abilities and talents, MINDS is committed to empowering them and enhancing their quality of life, while advocating for greater inclusivity for PWIDs as a nation. Today, MINDS is one of the largest charities in Singapore, serving more than 5,000 PWIDs and caregivers every year.
With the key focus to expand community-based services, improving the employability of PWIDS, strengthening education, and engendering inclusive community living, MINDS offers a holistic range of services and programmes across the PWIDs’ lifespan. These include schools, employment and training development centres, home-based care services and community-based services to cater to the physical, psychological, environmental and social needs of PWIDs and their families.
The Singapore Film Society (SFS) is the longest-established organiser of film festivals in Singapore. For over 60 years, SFS has conceptualised, curated, planned, programmed, marketed, and helped a wide range of event partners – such as theatrical distributors, cinema exhibitors, diplomatic missions, arts and cultural groups, charities and social service agencies – to showcase a year-round line-up of cutting edge movies from all over the world.
SFS’ flagship events include our European, Japanese, and Singapore Chinese Film Festivals. We also organise national premieres, limited-session showcases, advocacy screenings, public dialogues, and so much more. SFS aims to promote film appreciation, bridge the gap between art-house cinema and the commercial film industry, and advocate for film as an important medium for educating and sparking crucial conversations.
