It also features Dennis Davidson, topper of DDA Public Relations, Aubeck Kam, CEO of Singapore’s MDA, and Calvin Cheng, founding director of Lumina-Looque International.

“Our new board members bring with them many years of experience in the pan-Asian film industry, and I believe their contributions would be instrumental in strengthening the Asian focus in which ScreenSingapore has set out to achieve,” said Greg Coote, chairman of the board of ScreenSingapore.

Singapore merged its two premier media exhibitions in March, co-locating Screen Singapore and the Asia Television Forum, and it runs from Dec. 5 to 7.
