7 Letters is a 2015 Singaporean drama film directed by seven different directors. It comprises seven short stories celebrating Singapore's 50th anniversary. The film was selected as the Singaporean entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 88th Academy Awards but it was not nominated.
In January 2016, the film was initially flagged by Malaysian censors before it was due to screen at the Titian Budaya Festival. A successful appeal was made by organisers, CultureLink, against the cuts for the vulgar phrase in Cantonese, “curse your whole family”, in Jack Neo’s segment of the omnibus.
Maggie Lee of Variety called it "uneven but mostly poignant". Joanne Soh of The New Paper rated it 4/5 stars and wrote that it "truly is a passion project that will strike a chord with the older generation". John Lui of My Paper rated it 4.5/5 stars and wrote that the film's quality is good enough to call for a reassessment of assumptions about government-funded art.
Time Out Singapore selected it as the best Singaporean film of 2015.
