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 ciNE65 website for more details.

Stories of home and life in Singapore have been explored in film throughout the years and in ciNE65. The identity, culture and lifestyle of Singaporeans depicted in films are often a reflection of the life and times of living in Singapore.

Find out how different local filmmakers have portrayed Singapore in their films and be inspired to make your own short film! Films shown include Priceless and Tireless (dir. Kenny Tan), #12-99 (dir. Jeth Heng), Saga Seed and Ang Ku Kueh (dir. Chong Yu Lun).

The filmmakers will also share the inspiration and process in creating these stories of home.
