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 “Larry Crowne,” starring Julia Roberts and Lee Byung-hun. Japanese actress Aya Omasa is slated to appear to promote her new film “Paradise Kiss.”
Hong Kong actor Nick Cheung and director Wong Jing will be on hand at the opening night of his new comedy “Treasure Inn.” And Singaporean producer Sukee Chew will launch American director Dennis Lee’s offbeat comedy “Jesus Henry Christ.”
