With escalating news of the COVID-19 outbreak, Singaporeans can use a little bit of uplifting and inspiring conversations to get one’s mind off the crisis – if only for a moment. Hence, the annual National Youth Film Award (NYFA) Conference, organised by *SCAPE, is back!
Aligned with the theme for this year – “Emerging Trends and the Future of Content” – and also as a precautionary measure in view of COVID-19, the NYFA Conference will be going online for the first time. The conference will be streamed live on 17 April 2020, from 10.30am to 7pm.
Among the list of prominent speakers are Dorcas Tan, Director (Human Capital Development) of the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), Doreen Neo, Chief Content Officer, Mediacorp, and Kenneth Goh, Executive Director, Association of Independent Producers Singapore (AIPRO).
They will be addressing topics such as media scholarships, the role of crowdsourcing and what it means for screenwriters and filmmakers, as well as the emerging trends in the industry.
