Special Screening of the movie 7 Letters

The Media Authority of Singapore (MDA) is partnering 7 directors, Boo Junfeng, Eric Khoo, K Rajagopal, Jack Neo, Tan Pin Pin, Royston Tan and Kelvin Tong to organise a special free screening of the film 7 Letters, especially for students from communications/media-related courses.

The film is specially commissioned for SG50, and features a  montage of short films by marquee-name Singaporean directors. The 7 short films, each showcasing the lives and stories of Singaporeans, are each symbolic “love letters” to the nation. After the screening, students can interact with the directors through a Q&A session. This is a great opportunity for aspiring film makers and more details on the 7 Letters can be found here and here.
