Launched in July 2011, ciNE65 aims to capture our Singaporean identity through the lenses of local budding film-makers. It encourages aspiring young film-makers to share what Singapore means to them. This seminar is part of ciNE65 2019. Share your Singapore story and submit a 3-min short film before 18 March 2019! Visit the website for more details.

How do you convey your ideas and identity through the short film medium? Singaporean filmmakers Gladys Ng and Ivan Tan share the inspiration, challenges and the process of making their short films. They will screen their short films The Pursuit of a Happy Human Life (commissioned film for Singapore International Film Festival 2016) and Tadpoles (Jury prize at the 66th Locarno International Film Festival).
