CONTEST: Win Movie Tickets from CiNE65

I remember when I studied in Film and Media Studies in NP, video production was the most fun projects we would do. We enthusiastically write our scripts, find props, loan cameras and shoot. We don’t often get lookers willing to be on-screen though. A pity none of our projects was appropriate for short film competitions. Imagine killing two birds with one stone, winning the grand prize of an overseas learning trip to a regional film festival in addition to cash prizes and Panasonic cameras.

That’s what the winners of the second season of short film competition ciNE65 walked away recently with their entries.

“Priceless” won the “Overall Best Film” and “Best Screenplay” in the Open Category. I must have premonition! I embedded Priceless in my last post and said it was my favourite. Country flag erasers were such a prized possession as a child! How we have forgotten that and this short film brought back the nostalgia. 

For the Student Category, “Going Away” won.  Many of the ciNE65 clips relate to me personally and deeply. Especially the Student winner,‘Going Away’. An unexpected ending, I thought it would lead to her going overseas for education, which many Singaporeans do these days. I did contemplate enrolling into the military when I was 19 and everyone thought I was crazy. I chickened out in the end, heh. 

Short film “Honey.” won the Favourite Film award, which was determined by public voting. The grandfather looks familiar, i think he's a veteran Mediacorp actor no?

The art direction and accompanying music of Honey is beautiful lah.

The theme ‘I’ll be There for You’ sees a bumper season for CiNE65 II with 166 submissions, double from last year.

The Inter-School Challenge Trophy, a new award this season, went to Temasek Polytechnic, which submitted the highest number of quality entries in the Student Category. Is my Alma master lagging? Ngee Ann Polytechnic was the best school for Film and Media before are they still now?

There are 13 other awards presented for Best Direction, Best Editing, Best Screenplay, Best Sound Design, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Favourite Actor and Favourite Actress. You can find them on
So proud of the old lady for winning Favourite Actress voted by the public! Makes me abit sad and reminds me that my own parents are growing old too.

Living abroad first in 2007 (then again 6 years later), while it is refreshing to make new friends, encounter international cultures; nothing beats the familiarity of bumping into another fellow Singaporean. At the workplace or in school, Singaporeans look out for fellow Singaporeans.

The grass may seem greener on the other side, but home truely is where the heart is.
