Government bans political films

In 2002, 3 Singaporean filmmakers had their film pulled from the Singapore International Film Festival, when it was found that their film was about an opposition candidate. Despite the filmmakers' claims that the film was not 'political', a rebuke was sent to the institution where 2 of the filmmakers worked as teaching staff. Since then, the 2 filmmakers had left the institution.
