Singapore film Ilo Ilo on track to break even thanks to international acclaim
The film Ilo Ilo is on track to break even and might even garner a small profit, said film-maker Anthony Chen.
The drama made for a relatively modest S$700,000 had done especially well in France, where it has ranked among the most commercially successful of recent Asian imports.
In Singapore, it has just crossed the one million Singapore dollar mark in the box office, making it the best-performing non-mainstream film of recent times.
Chen said this at a talk held at the ATF Asia TV Forum & Market and Screen Singapore event on Dec 4.
