Screening Schedule:

KNOCKOUT / JEANETTE LIM / 6 MIN / 2010 / PG


In a time not to far from the future, virtual reality will no longer be just a dream. But for a few select individuals out there, their world has already made the jump to the matrix. Why trundle and trudge along with the daily grind of life, when an alternative reality exists out there, in its glorious high-definition and saturated colours? Plug in. Knock yourself out.

Jeanette Lim is a 21-year old aspiring filmmaker. Currently majoring in Broadcast and Cinema studies at Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information, Nanyang Technological University, she has directed and been involved in the production of several student films.

STORIES / JAMES HO / 16 MIN / 2010 / PG


Ah Gong (Grandfather) is new to the family and dislikes his grandson, Jim, so he decides to bridge the gap with imaginative, and ficticious, stories of his heroics. Jim is drawn in by the stories but learns that Ah Gong is not what he portrays himself to be. Ah Gong must then earn back the trust of his grandson.

He is now currently in the process of conceptualizing another unique short film.
