Screen Singapore: How much will it change Singapore’s film industry?
For just over a week in June, major stars — Tom Hanks, Zhang Ziyi, Shah Rukh Khan and Lee Byung-hun — filmmakers, directors, producers and film trade professionals will be gathering for the inaugural Screen Singapore (June 5-11).
This film entertainment event will see premieres of top Hollywood, European and Asian films along with a string of actors and actresses lending the event some star pull.
Tom Hanks will promote his latest movie â€œLarry Crowne,” starring Julia Roberts and Lee Byung-hun. Japanese actress Aya Omasa is slated to appear to promote her new film â€œParadise Kiss.â€
Hong Kong actor Nick Cheung and director Wong Jing will be on hand at the opening night of his new comedy â€œTreasure Inn.” And Singaporean producer Sukee Chew will launch American director Dennis Leeâ€™s offbeat comedy â€œJesus Henry Christ.â€
