National Youth Film Awards (NYFA) 23 July 2016
Aspiring youth filmmakers from local Institutions of Higher Learning (IHLs) will take the spotlight this coming weekend, as they compete in this year’s edition of the National Youth Film Awards (NYFA).
Organised by *SCAPE, the annual marquee initiative discovers and celebrates the best emerging talent for technical film crafts in Singapore, and aims to establish and raise a national benchmark for excellence in film. A record number of 260 submissions were received this year, and the films were put through a rigorous shortlisting process by NYFA’s 15-member jury, including award-winning director and screenwriter Lee Thean-jeen, veteran filmmaker and actor Jack Neo, film composer Alex Oh, and Vikram Channa of Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific, among other distinguished industry heavyweights.
Highlighting technical craft:
With the introduction of seven new categories this year to recognise the technical craft that goes into film making – awards for Best Camera Work, Best Colour Grading, Best Lighting, Best Character Design in Animated Film, Best Writing in Animated Film, Best Editing in Documentary Film, and Best Camera Work in Documentary Film – SINdie thought to profile some of the individuals who have contributed behind-the-scenes.
