SIM University Signs MOU With Singapore Film Society 新跃大学与新加坡电影协会签署谅解备忘录

On 10 April 2013, SIM University (UniSIM), through the UniSIM Centre for Chinese Studies (UCCS), signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Singapore Film Society (SFS) at a ceremony held at The Arts House, with Professor Eddie Kuo, Director of UCCS; and Mr Kenneth Tan, Chairman of SFS, as signatories.

Under the MOU, UniSIM and SFS will cooperate to organise an annual Singapore Chinese Film Festival (SCFF) with the objective of promoting Chinese films and culture as well as fostering dialogues with artistes and film-making talents from Chinese-speaking regions. According to Professor Kuo, UCCS aims to advocate the concept of Cultural China through the SCFF and to introduce to the Singaporean audience a Chinese-speaking world that is culturally-diverse, sophisticated and contemporary.

Some 30 representatives from UniSIM and the media were present to witness the MOU signing ceremony as well as the press launch of the inaugural SCFF.

The film festival, co-organised by UCCS and SFS will run from 26 April to 5 May 2013 at the Cathay Cineplex Cineleisure Orchard and The Arts House, showcasing a selection of 10 Singapore premiere films from Hong Kong, Taiwan and China. 

Complementing the festival will be two talkies panels featuring local and overseas filmmakers.



新跃大学与新加坡电影协会签署谅解备忘录


新跃大学属下的新跃中华学术中心于2013年4月10日与新加坡电影协会假艺术之家举行了谅解备忘录签署仪式,由新加坡电影协会主席陈继贤先生和新跃中华学术中心主任郭振羽教授签署。这次签署谅解备忘录的目的在于加强双方的合作关系,并共同致力于将新加坡华语电影节打造为我国的年度盛事之一。

郭教授表示:“新加坡华语电影节的推出同时也标志了新跃中华学术中心又朝具体呈现“文化中华”这个概念走了一大步。中港台这三个地方的电影都以华人社群为主,可是口音有些不同,关注的课题也不一样,呈现出来的风格更是各自精彩。放在一起,它们呈现了同中存异,异中求同的多元“文化中华”性格。”

约30名新跃大学代表和媒体工作者出席并见证了这场谅解备忘录签署仪式兼新加坡华语电影节新闻发布会。

以“两岸三地狮城聚,十天十片华夏情”為主题的第一届新加坡华语电影节将于4月26日至5月5日假国泰乌节电影娱乐城及旧国会大厦艺术之家放映。十部来自中港台的独立电影将在新加坡首映。配合电影节,主办单位也将推出两场华语电影面对面座谈会,提供一个平台让本地的电影人和来自大中华地区的导演互相交流。
