ShoutOUT! mm2 Entertainment, AsiaOne, and Cathay Cineplexes Presents Love Within Video Challenge Competition


Calling on all Singaporeans stuck at home. Create a short film to document your heart-warming stories of family life during the circuit breaker period and perhaps you will get to see your creation on the big screen! The best videos will also take home cash prizes totalling S$12,000. 

mm2 Entertainment, in collaboration with AsiaOne and Cathay Cineplexes, is organising an online video challenge, where members of the public are invited to act, direct and create a short story around the theme of love at home during the Circuit Breaker. Entitled Love Within, the challenge is about sharing stories of the unconditional love that families share, and what gets them through their struggles during this difficult time. 

“We are looking for messages of hope, positivity and love – all the things that the world needs right now,” says Ng Say Yong, Managing Director of mm2 Entertainment. “We know that everyone has a story to share; and since everyone is staying at home it might be a good opportunity to capture that story on video for posterity.” 

All video entries must be shot within the home with only the people residing in that home. This is in compliance with the social distancing measures put in place by the government. Entries can be shot on any video capture device, as long as the video output is a minimum HD quality, in landscape format, and within three to five minutes in duration. The video challenge is open to all residents of Singapore. 

Entries will be judged by a panel of well-known Singaporean directors and filmmakers including Wee Li Lin, K. Rajagopal, Sanif Olek and Gavin Lim. "So much has happened since the start of this year and whatever stories and perspectives come out of these happenings will be very interesting to see," says Love Within judge, Wee Li Lin. 

There will be two separate categories for submission, a Professional category meant for members of the media community and an Open category for everyone else. Three top winners from each category will receive a cash prize of $2,000. Closing date for entries is Friday 5 June 2020.

The best video entries will be presented to the Singapore public in an awards ceremony to be held in July at The Cathay Cineplex. Subsequently, the Love Within videos will be converted to digital cinema format to be screened for the public at Cathay Cineplexes. Cinemas remained closed during the circuit breaker period. 

Additionally, registered participants can participate in a series of free masterclasses hosted online by the judges. In these classes, the judges will go through some filmmaking basics as well as share their experiences in storytelling and creating a positive viewing experience. Schedule will be posted online.
