The Singapore Film Commission (SFC) was formed in April 1998 to support and develop the burgeoning film industry in Singapore. As of January 1st, 2003 the SFC became part of the Media Development Authority (MDA) of Singapore, and is spearheaded by 10 members from the private and public sectors. It works in four main areas: funding, facilitation, promotion and training. The SFC also encourages local producers to work with international partners to create and distribute strong, compelling films with both international and local appeal.

In recent years, Singapore has seen resurgence in filmmaking activities. In 2008, 17 new local films were released theatrically, comparing favorably with 10 in 2006. In fact, there were more feature films produced independently and screened at various festivals around the world every year.

SFC continues to grow the local filmmaking community. In 2008, the SFC New Feature Film Fund was launched to support young filmmakers with a unique combination of production financing, marketing funding and theatrical distribution facilitation. Besides funding support, SFC also provides an additional funding for local advertising and promotion with guaranteed local theatrical distribution through this fund.
