The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) has created a fund to encourage content creators in Singapore to create local content for a global audience.
The $1 million fund, named ‘Fast Forward’, aims to provide support to filmmakers, vloggers, media companies and creative agencies to create films, videos and animations that creatively feature Singapore and bring to life STB’s tagline ‘Passion Made Possible’.
“Singapore has a passionate community of content creators and storytellers who are already producing inspiring content and telling a great Singapore story,” said Terrence Voon, director for digital and content at STB.
“As part of our marketing strategy, we want to support home-grown talent and showcase content about our people, spirit and attitude in an authentic way. Through Fast Forward, we hope to turn more of such story ideas and concepts into reality, and bring their work to a global stage.”
Proposals will be evaluated by a judging panel consisting of Voon, Yuni Hadi, executive director at the Singapore International Film Festival, Benjamin Lee, head of digital and social content strategy at Tribal Worldwide, and Wee Li Lin, director at Bobbing Buoy Films.
