7th Asian Film Symposium
I have been curating the Malaysian section of this event in Singapore for seven years!
Three of us (Yuni Hadi, then of The Substation of Singapore, Chalida Uabumrungjit of The Thai Film Foundation, Thailand, and myself) started S-Express in 2001. We wanted to share the shorts made by each of our countries.
It's a testament to the efficiency of The Substation, a venue started by the late playwright Kuo Pau Kun, that The Asian Film Symposium has developed so well, and now we have many other countries joining in.
The Malaysian programme (4 shorts) is on the night of 9 September, but if you are in town, come for the whole thing lah.
