Digital Homelands Film Competition
Places hold powerful keys to some of our most sacred memories. Our childhood home, our old school or even the bus stop overlooking that playground across the road, Ã¢â‚¬” these places evoke some of our stronger emotions and inspire the most profound of thoughts.
Starting from now, the National Museum of Singapore gives you the chance to immortalise these experiences. Digital Homelands Singapore is a nation-wide project launched by the National Museum of Singapore for Singaporean filmmakers to share their special connection with specific locations in the island.
There are no restrictions to genre or number of entries per filmmaker so just let your creativity run free and share your memories and experiences by fleshing out a under-10 minute digital video by April 30. The technical requirements of your submission can be found here. Videos submitted can also appear on the site’s online gallery. An official showcase of the submitted videos will take place at the National Museum in July 2008.
The National Museum of Singapore will also be putting together a series of workshops around the island to inspire and equip aspiring filmmakers. Amongst the lauded instructors are filmmakers local Lillian Wang, Lionel Chiok and Sherman Ong, so this will certainly be an opportunity not to be missed for all budding, new filmmakers out there!
