SGIFF Film Club is an initiative to offer an intimate and welcoming space for conversations about cinema for the casual cinema-goer to the film enthusiast. Crane has been delighted to host the SGIFF Film Club since July, and we’re now opening the doors to Crane Joo Chiat for all Eastie film buffs!
Each session showcases a screening of rarely available independent films and encourages participatory discussions facilitated by the SGIFF team. Through these programmes, SGIFF hopes to develop fun and informed ways to engage with our audiences, evoke new curiosities and nurture a deeper appreciation of film in Singapore.
This quarter, join us to uncover new perspectives of a world trapped between politics, diverging ideologies and the innate human condition. Choose from a wide range of films, from an exploration of politics in The Kingmaker, to a critique of capitalism in The Great Buddha+, and a thrilling film in A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night. Moreover, don’t miss your chance to catch a unique Singaporean feature in September and August at our Mystery Film screening.
Ticket: $38 (includes a meal and drink).

An extended conversation about life, relationships, memory - and each other. With an intriguing frankness, this film observes a connection between 2 people as it begins, grows and ends. Between moments of pondering and the simplicity of everyday life, they find themselves wrapped in the strangeness of what we try to call care, romance, or even love.

Pickle is a night security guard at a Buddha statue factory owned by rich playboy Kevin. There, he is frequently visited by his best friend, Belly Button, a recyclables collector, and together they endure the dull nightshift by watching television - until it gets broken one night. Hoping to find some drama, they stumble upon Kevin’s dashboard camera, where they find footage which contain their boss’ ugly secrets that will change their lives forever.
“This ballad of sad losers mixed with satire on parochial politics is convulsively funny yet uncompromisingly bleak, bridging art with entertainment.” - Maggie Lee, Variety
