ShoutOUT!: Directing Actors and a Trip to Infinite Studios

2 years ago, SINdie uncovered a slew of novel short films that told the Singapore story in the most individually personal way. That was ciNE65, a short film competition that invites the public to tell their Singapore story. ciNE65 is back again this year and SINdie will play a part in helping to bring more buzz to the competition. In this second season of ciNE65, the theme is "I'll Be There For You, Singapore".
