Diversity and Inclusion

We are Singapore's first fully open and free smartphone filmmaking competition. Any age, any smartphone, any experience level, we want to see your films! Our theme this year is Diversity and Inclusion, and what that means to you!

Smartphones have democratised the art of filmmaking for everyone, and in this spirit of openness and collaboration, the High Commission of Canada in Singapore, the National Youth Achievement Award Council and leading Smartphone Filmmaker, Tejas Ewing have joined hands to launch this competition, that’s free and open to all.

We want to inspire the next generation of filmmakers to embrace the accessibility of smartphones and tell compelling stories that bring us all closer together. Up to ten shortlisted films will be screened live on March 31st (an invite-only exclusive benefit for filmmakers who submit)!

Great Prizes

Up to ten shortlisted films will be screened on March 31st (by invite only), and will receive certificates to confirm their official selection as finalists.

Shortlisted teams will also able to attend and invite selected guests to see their films shown on the big screen (invite only)

The top three films, to be announced at the screening event, will also win these great prizes, generously sponsored by the National Youth Achievement Award Council:

The Theme

You must address the theme in your short film. We want to know what the concepts of Diversity and Inclusion mean to you and the people you care about.

You can make a music video, a documentary, a genre film or even an experimental abstract film, as long as it deals with the theme in an exciting way!

Look at the photos you see on this page - what ideas and imagery do these photos inspire? What thoughts do they bring up? How can you interpret these concepts for a wider audience, in a short film?
