Thank You for your support

Thank you for attending PROJECT: SlingSHORT08/2!

Creative [SIN]ergy are delighted to present our 2nd installment of PROJECT: slingSHORT this year. Due to the overwhelming responds of films submitted during our open call earlier this year, a second screening was necessary.

We were able to raise a total of SGD$835.00 from the proceeds of the over subscribed and sold out screening of the last PROJECT: slingSHORT, which was in aid of the Asian Film archive.

We are delighted to announce that PROJECT: slingSHORT has also teamed up with Sinema to create a social initiative called projectION. Proceeds from this screening will be in aid of that initiative.

projectION brings the less fortunate from selected charities to the cinema. The selected charities are voted by the audience from the London screenining of PROJECT: slingSHORT.

Sinema has also agreed to host a screening of PROJECT: slingSHORT08 at Sinema Old School in Singapore to help raise additional funds for projectION.

PROJECT: slingSHORT is an ongoing series of Singapore short films. The selection of short films for each series comes from an ensemble of new up and coming Singapore filmmakers. A different Singapore short filmmaker curates each screening and selects the next curator from one of the filmmakers from the current screening.

Each PROJECT: slingSHORT screening acts as a launch platform for at least two complete unknown Singapore short filmmakers, one based in the UK (where possible) and the other from Singapore.

This screening of PROJECT: slingSHORT08 would not have been possible without the kind support of the Overseas Singaporean Unit, Singapore High Commission in London, Sinema, Thunk and MindLab. Special thanks to the selected filmmakers and last but not least, Victric Thng for all his curating efforts and for putting together yet another enjoyable film selection.

Enjoy PROJECT: SlingSHORT08/2…

Kind Regards,
