Singapore’s long awaited return to the M-league kicks off next week, and The New Paper will be throwing a launch party on 8 Jan 2012. Kwa Giu (Tribute to the National Stadium) will be screened at The New Paper Sports Bar (St James) from 6pm. The event is open to public and expect to see Singapore footballers old and new!

We recently did a little camera test for our new feature film – Zombiepura, starring Alaric Tay (The Noose) and Benjamin Heng (Eating Air). Finally, a Singapore Zombie movie? More details to come! View more photos and teasers on Facebook.
A writeup on SINdie about local filmmakers’ first films… reviewing Tak Giu:
” The warning sign of a man kicking football at a void deck is interpreted instead as the prohibition of kicking any ball at a certain angle just as the man is drawn.

We laugh hard at this final happy end, because we hardly expect things to be such…”
