LASALLE alumna Yuni, who is Executive Director of the Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF) and co-founder of Objectifs Films, was feted for her accomplishments in the Arts and Media category. The SGIFF returned from a three-year hiatus to widespread acclaim in 2014 under Yuni’s leadership.
Yuni, who achieved both the BA(Hons) Arts Management and MA Arts & Cultural Management degrees at LASALLE, is one of the producers behind Singapore’s claim to international cinematic glory — Ilo Ilo — which clinched the coveted Caméra d’Or for Best First Feature Film at the 66th Cannes Film Festival (2013).
