Two former directors of the Singapore International Film Festival will return to helm the event's 25th edition this year.

Ms Yuni Hadi, who would be leading the festival as announced last December, will assume the role of executive director. Her co-festival director in 2009, Mr Zhang Wenjie, will return as festival director and take charge of programming.

This was among the announcements made at the Hong Kong International Film & TV Market (Filmart) on Monday, as the Singapore International Film Festival, rebranded as SGIFF, raised the curtain on its new executive team.

The event has not been held since 2011 due to financial and personnel woes.
