    At Raffles Film Society, we let you build your own stories. Under the bright lights and high ceiling of the Art Studio, we learn to grapple with the multifaceted process of creating a film. Be it lighting, composition, editing, or scriptwriting, we are presented with a new challenge every week. Instructors who are acclaimed and active in Singapore's film scene are often invited to help train us in elements of filmmaking such as storyboarding, composition or lighting.

    Filmmaking is a fundamentally collaborative process. No film can ever be created alone, and here you will learn to work creatively with a group of likeminded people. Filmmaking is a tedious and tiresome process, with many different elements like lighting, sound and camerawork all coming into play at once. We might be the only CCA to present our works on an empty stage, but the light that spills from the screen to flood the space is often more than enough to fill the theatre with warmth.
