Watch Local: China Doll & Miss Wonton by Meng Ong


Watch Local is back! This year, we will screen the first short and feature films from an eclectic selection of Singapore filmmakers such as Boo Junfeng, Wee Li Lin and Liao Jiekai. Each night will focus on a different director, giving a unique perspective on each one's creative journey from their first short film to their first feature film. Post-screening discussions will accompany some of these sessions, allowing the audience insight into how these filmmakers have grown in their craft. From comedy to horror to drama, there's something for everyone!

All screenings are held at the Objectifs Chapel Gallery. Go to http://www.objectifs.com.sg/watchlocal2016/ for more information about the programme.

Screenings are free but pre-registration is required. Entry by donation.

Objectifs is a partner of ‘Watch Local’, an initiative under the Singapore Film Commission.
