Civic Life DVD giveaway

TIONG BAHRU, the short film made last year in and around the famous hawker centre and heritage estate in Singapore, is coming out on DVD and SINdie has 10 limited edition copies to give away to SINdie readers.

The film, which explores ideas of memory, place, and belonging and stars 150 volunteers from the Tiong Bahru community was filmed last year by London-based filmmakers Joe Lawlor and Christine Molloy.

The DVD also features 19 of the shortlisted films from the Civic Life short film competition WHERE THE HEART IS (read our gradings of the films here), and a souvenir booklet of production shots and essays by poet Alvin Pang, playwright and poet Ng Yi-Sheng and journalist Shzr Ee Tan.

The DVD will NOT be available for purchase (it will be available at libraries only) so this may be the only opportunity you will be able to get your own copy.

For a chance to win, send an email to with SINDIE in the subject line by 5.00pm February 28th, 2011.

Winners will be drawn at random and will be notified by email. Good luck!
