By way of conclusion, this last chapter discusses current developments in Singapore cinema through recent films like Ilo Ilo (Anthony Chen, 2013), Meeting the Giant (Tay Ping Hui, 2014) and To Singapore with Love (Tan Pin Pin, 2014). It also examines the 7 Letters anthology of films (2015) and Eric Khoo’s In the Room (2015) as tributes against the context of Singapore’s fiftieth birthday celebrations. Analysis of these films shows that although the industry has grown, the heartland is still a site of contestation and the existence of other Singaporeans in (an)other Singapore continues to persist. The chapter also develops and expands on my prior argument on Singapore cinema’s position as (an)other cinema in Singapore.

Keywords:   Singapore, Singaporeans, Other, Cinema, Industry, Heartland, Tan Pin Pin, Eric Khoo, Ilo Ilo, 7 Letters
