KAMPONG FILM FESTIVAL (article first published : 2003-09-10)

In collaboration with the Singapore Film Commission (SFC) and the Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA), Media Hive Pte Ltd is putting together a Digital Film Festival that will showcase not only great local works but also films flown in from all over the world. The Kampong Film Festival will run from November 27 to December 3.

Films will be divided into three categories. Both feature and short films are welcome for the "World" and "Asian" categories. The "Singapore" category will boast a competition for all short films within the group. Exciting prizes will come in the form of film grants from the SFC, high quality Canon digital products and a Film Incubator Project, a programme kick-started by Media Hive Pte Ltd which will equip the winner with cash, facilities and expertise to make his or her first feature film. A jury consisting of prestigious industry professionals will be invited to assess the competing short films.

Audience can catch any of the featured films at the community libraries and cinema theatres all around Singapore. Media Hive also plans to bring the films and the crowd outdoors by screening films in the open areas of the residential neighbourhoods and city area alike. The expected turnout stands at around 2,000 to 5,000 people.

Filmmakers interested in showcasing their work of art, should e-mail projects@megamedia.com.sg and cc to juan@mediahive.org for more details.
