We also asked Junfeng what we could do to expose young people to films outside of Hollywood, and how to cultivate an appreciation for the film arts. He raises the issue of an apparent ‘prejudice’ against arthouse films: “We can be a bit more active in promoting these films. Surprisingly, theaters like Picturehouse or GV Cinema Europa see a surprising number of retirees or self-retirees who go because they have nothing else to do. I think sometimes it can be that first step that is important. We can help them take that first step by bringing these films into the heartlands and allowing folks to see these films without prejudice. . . Singapore theatre is actually very successful in drawing the public into the theatres. I think cinema has that potential.”
