Celebrating Peru’s Bicentennial at The Peruvian Film Festival 2021
Following the success of an inaugural collaboration in 2020, NUS Alumni Relations is proud to have partnered with the Embassy of Peru in Singapore for the second year to host Peruvian Film Festival 2021, at Shaw Foundation Alumni House.
The film festival was also a celebratory opportunity to commemorate Peru’s 200 years of independence.
Kicking off with an Opening Night on 23 November 2021, the event was organised with strict implementation of safe management measurements to ensure a responsible get-together for all. In attendance were His Excellency Carlos Vasquez, Ambassador of the Republic of Peru to Singapore, and Mr Bernard Toh (Architecture ’84), Director of NUS Alumni Relations, who both gave welcome addresses before guests were treated to the selected film of the night, El Bien Esquivo (The Elusive Good).
From 24 to 26 November, guests and attendees of the public screening nights got to enjoy the best of Peruvian films, which showcased the country’s unique and intriguing culture. The film festival came to a fruitful conclusion as the NUS community looks forward to building on 41 years of friendship and diplomatic relations between Singapore and Peru.
