Synopsis Droves of men and women from neighbouring Asian countries make up this transient work force and take up low-paying jobs- most men in the labour market, and women as domestic helpers.

You want to craft something, do you not? So practice and develop your craft first. Survival for the filmmaker is conditioned by the fact that film is an industry. Which doesn’t exclude art from happening; art as the true and free expression of self will always originate on its own accord with anyone who struggles and aspires to a better self.

The British Council recently organised a major two-day forum in Singapore looking at community and the arts, in partnership with the National Museum and the Theatre Training and Research Programme (TTRP).

Jointly organised by the Hong Kong Economic & Trade Office and Golden Village Multiplex, the Hong Kong Film Festival (Singapore) will be taking place from the 8th to 11th of April 2010 at Cinema Europa, GV Vivocity.
