Homeground, the full film, was uploaded on Facebook and has since gotten us many fans. The film has nearly 100,000 views, thank you for your support!
Homeground will be screening at OFFSIDEFEST 2016, Football Film Festival in Barcelona, Spain. This will be the European premiere of our film and we are proud to share our football culture with the homeground of Tiki Taka! Festival details here.
“Homeground is, on instant viewing, visually more polished, colour-graded to perfection, cinematographically refined by today’s conventions and so cleanly-scripted, it could pass off as a national campaign commercial…
…It documents a string of regular soccer games played at several venues in Singapore from Chinatown to Bukit Timah, from Serangoon to Seletar. Through interspersing these different stories with each other, ‘Homeground’ paints an informative cross-section of Singapore demographics. There are racial representations of each kind (even Ang Mohs), women, foreign workers and even seniors like the film’s anchor character, taxi-driver, Steven Wong (photo below). it is almost like a utopian world of soccer enthusiasts of every background who are all united by their love for soccer.”

Many of you have been asking where to watch the film, ever since the Homeground launch in Oct 2015. We apologise for the delay in uploading the full film online, as we have new plans to screen the film elsewhere first. (Original date for online upload was Nov/Dec 2015). We promise to bring you the full film soon! Meanwhile, stay updated on the Homeground Facebook.
