National Youth Film Award Conference
The annual National Youth Film Award (NYFA) Conference, organised by *SCAPE, is back!
With escalating news of the COVID-19 outbreak, Singaporeans can use a little bit of uplifting and inspiring conversations to get one’s mind off the crisis – if only for a moment. Hence, the annual National Youth Film Award (NYFA) Conference, organised by *SCAPE, is back!
Aligned with the theme for this year – “Emerging Trends and the Future of Content” – and also as a precautionary measure in view of COVID-19, the NYFA Conference will be going online for the first time. The conference will be streamed live on 17 April 2020, from 1030 to 1900.
Among the list of prominent speakers are:
– Dorcas Tan, Director (Human Capital Development) of the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA)
– Kane Wheatley-Holder, Vice President, Screenwriters Association (Singapore)
– Dexter Ong, Head of Asia, Wattpad
– Kenneth Goh, Executive Director, Association of Independent Producers Singapore (AIPRO)
They will be addressing topics such as media scholarships, the role of crowdsourcing and what it means for screenwriters and filmmakers, as well as emerging trends in terms of production practices.
