DHL, the world’s leading express and logistics company, is the proud recipient of the Associate of the Arts Award 2008, presented by the National Arts Council Singapore under the banner of Patron of the Arts Award, for its contribution to the Singapore International Film Festival (SIFF). DHL has been supporting the SIFF for seven consecutive year since 2001, providing cash contribution as well as acting as the Official Logistics Provider. At the recent SIFF in February, DHL transported over 200 film reels and digital videos from 40 countries across North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia for screening at the Festival in Singapore. As in previous years, the film reels and digital videos were transported safely and on time between the various countries and Singapore through DHL’s reliable and unparallel global logistics network and specialized delivery systems.
Herbert Vongpusanachai, General Manager, DHL Express Singapore, said, "We are very proud to lend our logistics expertise to support a festival that has been instrumental in revitalizing the community interest in the arts scene and film industry in Singapore. We are delighted to receive this Award, but feel more accomplished to see that the Festival has grown over the years in popularity and diversity.”
Each year, the National Arts Council confers the Patron of the Arts Award based solely on nominations made by the Arts community, in appreciation of the contribution by organizations and individuals to the local arts scene.
