"After so many years of making movies, it is my pleasure to play a part in helping aspiring new directors make their dreams come true,” said Gordon Lam.

“I am excited by the idea of this regional competition as I started off making short films. I look forward to the judging and hopefully I will discover some gems along the way,” said Eric Khoo.

The top three winners will be awarded cash prizes and products amounting to over S$20,000. The winning films will also be broadcasted in Singapore on FIC’s Chinese movies channel SCM. In addition, one of the winners will be given the opportunity to produce a feature film with mm2 Entertainment!
