ShoutOUT!: Masterclasses and Workshops @ Perspectives Film Fest + Free ticket giveaway
At Perspectives Film Festival this year, film enthusiasts will have a rare opportunity to meet an internationally acclaimed filmmaker. Martin Rosen, director of Watership Down (1978), will be conducting an animation masterclass to lend insights on the film’s production process. This event will take place on 17 October 2015. In Bringing Your Characters To Life: An Animation Masterclass with Martin Rosen, Rosen will speak about the birth of his first animation film Watership Down — from adapting it in its stages of infancy as a novel to the final delivery of the award-winning animation.
In addition, after the screening of Watership Down (see film stills above and right-side) on 16 October, festival-goers may stay for a post-screening dialogue with Rosen, who will be present to share his experience and answer questions from the audience.
Other in-festival activities include a talk on how you can learn from the best at the Cannes Festival International du Film. Michael Bremer, Director of Student Programmes at the American Pavilion(AmPav), will speak about opportunities for professionals and students keen to find out more about the industry.
PFF will also be holding a series of pre-festival workshops leading up to the festival. On 3 October, join one of Singapore’s pioneering female filmmakers, Wee Li Lin, in a dialogue about her filmmaking journey and her transition from short films to feature films. On 10 October, join Perspectives for an afternoon of award-winning short films from two burgeoning filmmakers — November by Shane Lim and Last Trip Home by Han Fengyu — followed by a dialogue with the young talents, as well as veteran producer and educator Juan Foo.
The festival will run from 15 to 18 October 2015 at the National Museum of Singapore, with an international lineup of films that meanders through various cultures and contexts, all centred around the theme of “Transition”.
