10 films have been selected as finalists for the second Viddsee Juree Awards Singapore, an annual industry pick award celebrating best short films from Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines. In each edition, the countries’ brightest talents and storytellers submit their films to a panel of international judges, who will then handpick the winning entries. 

From experienced independent filmmakers to student filmmakers, this year’s crop of films cover a wide range of subjects, such as family relationships, love, and artificial intelligence told across various genres of drama, sci-fi and musicals. 

“This year’s finalists showed an impressive understanding of the craft and creativity required in creating a well-produced short film. Coupled with filmmakers’ candidness in examining the issues of familial ties, relationships, and cultural diversity, the films managed to both entertain and stare meaningful conversations,” said Viddsee’s Head of Content, Nikki Loke.
