The Lapis Sagu Film Contest is a film-making experience like no other. All you have to do is submit a story idea on Singapore’s cultural diversity and local-foreigner relations. If your entry is chosen by one of our four celebrated filmmakers, they will work closely with you to bring your idea to life.The Brief
“The power of film is incredible. There's so much you can do and say.”
“This project is a collaboration not just with filmmakers, but also like-minded people in the public. It’s going to be very exciting.”
“I'm looking forward to meeting people who have an original mind. It could be the same story, but they have a new way of looking at it.”
“I'd like to see their honesty in telling stories that will connect, that have a heart, that speak to the audience.”
As if a chance to work with one of Singapore’s leading directors isn’t amazing enough, each of the four winners or teams get to walk away with $5,000 in cash too!
Singapore is a melting pot of cultures. Rich in flavour and unique in character, we’re bound together like intricately crafted layers of Lapis Sagu. Project Lapis Sagu is a creative springboard for open conversations on cultural diversity and social integration in Singapore.
