SINGAPORE — Nine local filmmakers and 10 production companies comprise the largest Singapore delegation yet at Marche du Film.
Singapore sends 20 pics to the market this year, including Jack Neo’s “I Not Stupid Too” and Kelvin Tong’s “Love Story”; last year, three films nabbed international sales representation.
“The Marche du Film 2006 is a key platform to showcase the cinematographic creations of Singapore’s relatively nascent but highly talented media industry,” said Singapore Film Commission director Man Shu Sum. “The international exposure that local filmmakers and production companies gain from the event is invaluable.”
The island state is the only Asian country this year to be invited to unspool pics in Tous Les Cinemas du Monde — a festival event dedicated to world cinema.
