The works from the class of 2020/2021 from LASALLE College of the Arts, Nanyang Technological University, and Temasek Polytechnic will be spotlighted at the showcase.
Sinema Showoff!, which ran as a programme under Sinema Old School, Singapore’s first high-definition theatre set up to showcase local filmmakers and their works, is making a comeback after almost a decade.
Between 2007 and 2012, Sinema Showoff! was a home for local amateurs and industry filmmakers to present and celebrate their works. It featured the likes of Anthony Chen, Nicole Midori Woodford, Michael Kam and K. Rajagopal.
This year, Sinema Showoff! is looking to encourage and enrich future generations of filmmakers.
Graduating classes of 2020 and 2021 from LASALLE College of the Arts, Temasek Polytechnic, and Nanyang Technological University will be given the chance to present their films across four biweekly editions.
This includes four curated programmes, screenings and Q&A sessions with the youth filmmakers in Sinema Disco(rd) Club.
The first edition of genre films will take place on Tuesday (Aug 17) at 8 pm. Tuesday’s lineup consists of films focusing on social drama and comedies in Singapore.
Lee Si Min’s psychological horror film HUAN EXPRESS narrating a Faustian bargain struck between a struggling student and an enigmatic uncle will start off the evening, followed by Glen Michael’s action thriller TRAPPED about a detective’s mission gone sideways.
The evening will end with Haziq Adam De Silva’s BOOKING which details the lengths a father would take to ensure a better life for his daughter.
A Q&A session with the filmmakers will follow after the showcase.
