From Local To Global Film Seminar

InnoForm Media is proud to present the From Local to Global Film Seminar by 2 of Singapore’s best directors - Royston Tan and Kelvin Tong. This is the first time ever that the 2 award winning directors are colloborating to share their movie making experiences. The seminar next Saturday is made possible only with the kind support of Crocodile and the National Library Board. This is a rare occasion where 2 of the best local filmmakers share their filming experiences with their fans and aspiring filmmakers. From Local to Global is an addition to the well received series of events “Directing Asia: Insights into Asian Cinema” where the library invites Asian film directors and producers to share their filming experiences on Asian Movies.

Iconic filmmakers in Singapore, Royston Tan and Kelvin Tong have produced films that won awards both locally and internationally. Despite the growing popularity of their works, they have not compromise artistic integrity with the demands of the mass audience.

In support of the local movie industry, InnoForm Media has re-issued Eating Air, the first film by acclaimed winning director Kelvin Tong on DVD and VCD. This is to allow more film lovers the chance to view what some critics have credited as probably the best local movie ever. The DVD version is a Special Collector’s Edition, which includes many extras and even a soundtrack consisting of 18 tracks from the film.

InnoForm Media is also proud to be launching the video release of 4:30, the latest work by director Royston Tan. The movie, which was the opening film at this year’s Singapore International Film Festival and competed at the Berlin Film Festival, was well received by movie-goers and critics alike during its release in June. The film is now available on DVD and VCD.

All members of the media are invited to cover the From Local to Global Film Seminar and the details are as follow:
