What is A Design Film Festival?

A Design Film Festival is a film festival on design and its subcultures. It is the first film festival in Asia dedicated solely to design.

Where will it be held?

It will be held in Singapore at Capitol Theatre on 3 and 4 September and Shaw Theatres LIDO on 9, 10 and 11 September.

Who is behind this?

A Design Film Festival is founded and organised by Anonymous, a design studio and the creators of and Bracket.

I can't make it to the Festival, how else can I watch the films?

A selection of films from this year's festival will be available to rent or buy through DFF Video On Demand across Southeast Asia.

How is DFF funded?

Since its launch in 2010, DFF is entirely self-funded with no financial support from government funding or major corporate sponsorships. The Festival's sustainability is completely dependent on ticket and merchandise sales. All revenue goes into the cost of running the event including venue rental, screening fees, film rating fees, shipping fees, print production, manpower and more.

How can I buy tickets?

Tickets are available online at $15 each through our custom ticketing system at There are no booking fees.

How do I collect my tickets?

Simple. Once your order is complete, you will receive an e-mail confirmation for ticket collection during the festival. Bring a copy of this e-mail (either printed or on your mobile phone) to the venue to collect all the tickets you've booked. Tickets can be collected up to an hour before the first show that you are attending.

Do I need a PayPal account to pay?

No, all you need is a credit/debit card.

What happens for sold out shows?

When a screening is sold out, it will go into a Rush Tickets system (also known as last-minute tickets). A stand-by line will form 30 minutes before showtime at the venue. Empty seats from no-shows will be sold first come, first served at $15 each, limited to 2 tickets per person, 10 minutes before showtime.

Do you offer bulk order discounts?

Yes, we do! We offer a discount of 5% for orders of 20 or more tickets, and 10% for 50 or more tickets.
