PROJECT: slingSHORT Curator's Notes

I hope you enjoy the selection of short films in this edition of PROJECT: slingSHORT.

They deal with subject matters that are close to Singapore shorts: family, relationship, innocence lost and societal suppression.

They have traveled to Venice, Berlin, Rotterdam, Oberhausen…… Singapore shorts have truly gained wider visibility in the international film festival circuits.

They are made by filmmakers who have developed from making shorts to features -- Ho Tzu Nyen, Boo Junfeng, Sanif Olek.

They are also made by film students: Kirsten Tan (NYU Tisch), Tan Shijie (Tisch Asia), He Shuming (LaSalle) & Tan Wei Keong (NTU). They are the up-and-coming talents who bring new inputs to our creative scene.

I hope Singapore films will get better & better with your support in recognizing film is an art of expression.
