Royston Tan: Something to remember
Jakartans were delighted to see Singaporean filmmaker Royston Tan’s short films at the 9th Q! Film Festival.
His films were screened for two nights before the Islam Defenders Front (FPI) rallied in front of the venues demanding the closing of the LGBT themed film festival.
Tan noted that Jakarta was the only place in which he received long emails from people after his film screenings.
He received emails after the screening of his musical 88 at the 2008 Jakarta International Film Festival (JiFFest), and the Q! Film Festival was not that much different, he said.
