Sinema Old School opened with a bang yesterday night and I was happy to be there. The opening film was Eric Khoo’s 12 Storeys, and upon watching it again on the big screen, you’ll discover many new things and will agree that this is a classic.
Sinema Old School is the first and only high-definition cinema solely devoted to Singapore films. This powerful indie 130-seater space will also host local band gigs, technology workshops and master-classes, film forums and dialogue sessions.
There’s also a store selling Singaporean Dvds, CDs, soundtracks, magazines, and movie merchandise. It’s located at Mount Sophia Old School (very hip place), about 10mins walk from Dhoby Ghaut MRT (or 20 mins if you walk very slow).
The Substation Theatre was again filled to capacity for the Best of First Take last night, marking the end of the weekend celebrations of Moving Images’ 10th Anniversary. Audiences were able to vote for their favourite film after the screening, and Fai won most votes with his film ‘Bob’.
Zo Gang and Zo Hee received good response, and we look forward to screening it again. An actor from another film said he was crying laughing while watching it.
We also got the audience to say ‘Hosay!’ for the Hosaywood ‘commercial’. Watch out for it soon!
Thanks to everyone who came to the Zo Hee World Premiere at Substation Moving Images’ 10th Anniversary party.
It’s been quite a ride making Zo Hee, and I’m glad everyone enjoyed it! Many of the actors and special cameos from the film were also present, and watching a film at The Substation made in The Substation made it very special indeed.
(More pics to come)
The celebrations continue until Monday, ending with the Best of First Take on Monday night. Zo Gang is one of the films that night, and viewers get to vote for their best of the Best of First Take! And the best winner of the best of the Best of First Take wins a prize.
Film-maker wannabe, Ah-Tan is sick of his day job. Join Ah-Tan on his way to work one day, as he discusses and pokes fun at local film and music, while plotting his path to become Singapore’s next great director.
This comedy on the difficulties of making film and music will leave you wondering about the state of the Arts in Singapore!
