Works by Singapore Film-Makers Showing at International Festivals
Film festivals around the world going virtual has not deterred Singaporean film-makers from participating and winning recognition.
Among them is director Tan Bee Thiam, 42. His comedy, Tiong Bahru Social Club, has been picked to make its world premiere at one of Asia’s most important film events, the Busan International Film Festival in South Korea.
The film, Tan’s first full-length feature, has been selected to screen in the Window On Asian Cinema section at the festival, which opened yesterday and runs till Oct 30. It is the only Singapore movie screening there this year. Past Singapore entrants include Eric Khoo’s horror satire Mee Pok Man (1995) and the SG50 anthology 7 Letters (2015).
