Objectifs Lovin' Local Film Fund: Unlucky Plaza
Death by box office is a perennial bugbear of local film directors. There are many reasons why a local film might struggle in the box office, including the surge of alternative entertainment options, and the small advertising and promotion budgets of local films. Many independent films also find that they need to overcome the stigma that a "made-in-Singapore" film is not as good as one from another country.
The Objectifs Lovin' Local Film Fund is our attempt in saying, "give a local film a shot"! We're putting aside our own funds to purchase 50 tickets for every independent local film made over the next year. Our only request is that after you watch the film, please help us spread the word about the film, by sharing your movie-going experience or thoughts on the film on any social media platform (e.g Facebook, Twitter, Instagram).
This week, we are giving away tickets for:
UNLUCKY PLAZA, DIR. BY KEN KWEK. Screening will be at Shaw Lido, 7pm, 29 Apr (Wed) (Film is rated M18). Please note our T&Cs below.
We hope to eventually grow this humble effort and get more individuals to watch Singapore-made films, as well as corporate donors/groups to organise bigger film screenings. We also hope to be able to extend free tickets to charity organisations. If you'd like to get involved, drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Terms & Conditions:
1) You must pre-register for tickets. Each registrant is allowed a max. of 2 tickets. Tickets will be given out on a first-come-first-served basis.
2) If you can't make it, please cancel your registration or give us a call at 6293 9782 so that we can give your tickets to others. You can transfer your tickets to another person.
3) We will be there 30 min before the screening time (i.e. 630pm for this round!) and will leave 10 min before the screening time (i.e. 650pm). We will not wait for latecomers. Please look out for Objectifs staff standing by the entrance/near box office area for ticket collection. We will be holding a sign "Objectifs".
