Most filmmakers start out by making short films. The short film format allows filmmakers to explore and experiment with different storytelling styles. Learn how two prolific short filmmakers, Sanif Olek and Wee Li Lin, have honed their craft over the years. They will highlight some of their past films, and share how they conceptualised and worked on their recently commissioned short film for ciNE65 based on the theme “Home - Truly”.

Sanif Olek is one of the most accomplished and versatile television and film directors from Singapore. Since 1996, he received multiple awards for Best Director, Best Drama Series and Best Magazine Series for his television work. His short films have won awards at international film festivals and showcased at museums such as the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, Singapore Art Museum and the National Museum of Singapore. His debut feature film, Sayang Disayang, represented Singapore at the 2015 Academy Awards in the Best Foreign Language Film category.

Wee Li Lin is one of the pioneer female filmmakers in Singapore. Her prolific filmography boasts 11 short films and two feature films as well as several tele movies and commercials. She has won several awards locally and internationally such as "Best Director" at the Singapore International Film Festival and a "Star Award" at the Shanghai International Film Festival for actress Joanna Dong for her starring role in Li Lin's sophomore feature Forever. Her films have travelled to prestigious festivals such as the Tribeca Film festival in New York, the Cairo International Film festival, the Shanghai international film festival and many others. Li Lin did her undergrad at Brown University in Rhode Island and her graduate studies at NYU-Tisch Asia where she studied dramatic writing.
