ScreenSingapore by numbers
Tom Hanks has left, the red carpet has been rolled up and the curtain has come down. The inaugural ScreenSingapore officially ended yesterday after an eight-day run that kicked off Jun 5. Host Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA) and organiser Experia Events also confirmed yesterday that the film and trade event will be returning in June 2012. Here’s what went down at the first edition, by the numbers. GENEVIEVE LOH
