A Day's Reunion
Directed by Png Zhen Yu (Director in-attendance)

In the fast-paced Singapore, everyone is spending more time away from home, seeking for career advancement and ways to earn more money. This has resulted in Singaporeans accompanying their work more than their family. Has being in the workforce led us to forgetting the value of filial piety? Have we taken for granted the very people who have dedicated their lives to raise us to working adults? Nominated for National Youth Film Awards 2017 - several categories including Best Production Design and Best Picture.






The Clock
Directed by Kenny Tan

A young rookie volunteer learns the true essence of end-of-life care and volunteerism from a testy cancer patient who has lost hope. "The Clock" is a commissioned project by Nectar Care Service (Singapore), a non-profit organization - which promotes the awareness of life and death through public education and to train a group of volunteers, who possess the required abilities to provide quality palliative care and services to patients with life-limiting illnesses.
