Eat A Film

Welcome to the EAT A FILM programme by Sinema Old School — a platform for film appreciation!

Sinema’s new initiative Eat-A-Film is suitable for just about anyone and everyone which aims to increase film literary through understanding visuals.

Film is a powerful medium for story-telling. However, beyond this medium is a multi-layered complexity which requires skills and knowledge to unfold. Like wine appreciation, we believe that appreciating a film should be a valued lifetime skill as it will often be applied in a developed country like Singapore.

The sessions are conducted by Nicholas Chee, co-founder of Sinema Old School and Sinema Media. Listed Number 1 Top Ten Actors/Directors/Producers in The  MONOCLE Singapore Survey 2009, Nicholas teaches both the Craft and Art of Photography and Filmmaking.
