Homegrown hospitality brand Amara Hotels & Resorts is proud to host renowned international celebrities as it is the Official Hotel of the 22nd Singapore International Film Festival (SIFF) held from 14th April to 25th April 2009. This is the first collaboration between the annual Festival and Amara.

As a local and homegrown brand name that is now synonymous with distinctive luxury and alluring comfort, Amara Hotels & Resorts strives to support and nurture local lifestyle and cultural initiatives. Its premier partnership with SIFF is part of its ongoing efforts in championing this endeavour, and hosting festival guests such as Hollywood icon Peter Fonda, actors Russel Wong and Ananda Everingham, and acclaimed director Zhang Yuan solidifies its commitment to support the burgeoning local film
industry.

“Amara International Hotels & Resorts is delighted to be the Official Hotel of the 22nd Singapore International Film Festival. We are extremely happy to be associated with some of Singapore’s most creative and talented film industry professionals. We hope this partnership will be the first of many to come," said Sharon Vu, Marketing Communications Manager for Amara Hotels & Resorts.

The Festival will be presenting cine-enthusiasts and film novices with an opportunity to catch an impressive array of 193 films from 34 countries. In recognition of excellence in local filmmaking, a new award segment titled “Singapore Film Awards” was also added to the Festival’s annual awards ceremony, the Silver Screen Awards. The inaugural Singapore Film Awards crowned the winner in the categories of Best Performance in a film; Best Cinematography; Best Screenplay; Best Director and Best
Film.

As part of the celebrations for this local film event of the year, Amara Hotels & Resorts has also created special promotions that award movie-goers with discounted rates off their dinner or supper when they present their SIFF movie stubs at any dining outlets within Amara Singapore. Movie buffs can now satiate their palates with an entertaining evening at the cinema followed by excellent food within the collection of more than 10 dining outlets at Amara Hotels & Resorts.
