This season, Singaporeans are invited to create their own short films that reflect on their hopes and dreams for Singapore and how we can make Singapore a home for the future generations. 

Participants can look forward to an exciting and enriching experience in the fourth season of ciNE65. Besides attending a series of seminars and workshops to help hone their filmmaking skills, participants also stand to win the grand prize of an overseas trip to a prestigious International Film Festival. 

This season cadre of judges will include Chen-Hsi Wong (Film director and Assistant Professor, School of Art, Design and Media, Nanyang Technological University); Edmund Chen (Director of Asiatainment and Asiatainment artiste); Jack Neo (Film director and founder of J Team Productions); Jason Lai (Co-founder & director of content at Oak3 Films); Jeremy Sing (Founder and editor of SINdie.com); Kit Chan (Artiste and creative consultant); Lim Ting Li (Sound designer, re-recording mixer and foley artist of Mocha Chai Laboratories); N. Mohamed Yahssir (Film director and founder of Millenia Motion Pictures); Sanif Olek (Creative director and owner of reeljuice); and Wee Li Lin (Film director and co-founder of Bobbing Buoy Films).

ciNE65 participants can draw inspiration from the commissioned films of well-known filmmakers Sanif Olek and Wee Li Lin. Both filmmakers were inspired by their childhood experiences at the hair salon and, by pure coincidence, chose to set their films in old-school salons! 

Sanif Olek’s film “The Usual” was inspired by his fond memories of his National Service days, when he served as a Commando in the Singapore Army, while Li Lin’s “The Perm” tells a relatable story of a young girl who experiments with her first perm that turns out very differently from what she had expected.

ciNE65 Season IV will accept film entries from January 2017 to 17 April 2017. In June 2017, the public will be able to vote for their favourite films, actors and actresses via Facebook or via SMS.
