Now into its second year, the Panasonic-MDA Digital Film Fiesta celebrates the newly crowned winners in the definite High-Definition Short Films and National Scriptwriting Competition. The event was held at the National Museum Gallery Theatre which has, since its inception, fast become the heart of Singapore film and film heritage.

This year, the theme of Free Your Ideas saw both new and slightly seasoned filmmakers attempting to tell their stories with renewed conviction, while shooting on the indie fave AG-HVX202. No two stories are alike, no two treatments and approachs are the same. This year’s HD short film competition has its humour (Superdong), its horror (Blood Ties), its nostalgia (Happy Birthday, Ah Ma) and its very own “bedtime” story (The Mole). No longer are we plagued by the usual gloom and doom tales of the early independent shorts.

Perhaps, the independent scene is fast maturing and the quality of work has improved leaps with improved and accessible technologies. Perhaps there is renewed hope and talent in the independent cinema scene.

All eleven finalist can be seen on the official site, leaving you, the Sinema audience, to judge the works for yourselves. Here are the winners:
