ShoutOUT! - Submissions for the SGIFF Youth Jury Programme are open
In partnership with Nanyang Technological University’s Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information, the Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF) Youth Jury Programme seeks to nurture a new generation of critical writers on cinema from the region. The workshop will take place one weekend day each week during the month of November, as well as December 6th and 7th. Between 10 to 15 post-secondary students will be educated on the historical and cultural significance of past and present Southeast Asian works, how film theory and close readings of films greatly benefit film writing for a wider audience, as well as different interviewing approaches.
The Programme will culminate in the participants producing a daily online newsletter providing coverage of the Southeast Asian Short Film Competition, in the form of critical writing pieces on the works’ larger significance and interviews with the filmmakers involved. Finally, the Youth Jury will vote on the Youth Jury Prize-winning film during the Silver Screen Awards.
The submission deadline is 15 October 2014, 6pm (GMT+8).
