ShoutOUT! Golden Village gives you cash, mentors and screen-time with GV25

Golden Village just launched GV25 Film Shorts today , a new grant scheme for aspiring filmmakers to make a short film here in Singapore. Working in conjunction with distinguished local directors Kelvin Tong and Boris Boo, the initiative will see three successful applicants receive a grant of S$ 2,000 each to make a short film, with the Best Short Film receiving a further cash prize of S$ 3,000 and the opportunity to be screened in Golden Village’s multiplexes.

The initiative has been developed as part of Golden Village’s 25-year anniversary celebrations, and requires the film story line to align with the theme Past, Present & Future. Applications will be judged according to a predetermined points system, with filmmakers for the top eight shortlisted films being invited to present their script to a Judging Panel made up of the two directors, Boris Boo and Kelvin Tong, Kenneth Tan from the Singapore Film Society, YouTuber Tree Potatoes and Clara Cheo, CEO of Golden Village.

GV25 Film Shorts is open to all aspiring filmmakers aged 16-years and over.
