Hello! I am Adora, a Year Four Broadcast & Cinema Studies student at the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information (WKWSCI) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU).
I specialise in film production, film studies and film festivals. During my time here in WKWSCI, I have produced a couple of films, organised Perspectives Film Festival, headed to Busan International Film Festival and produced a multimedia project. I am currently making a short documentary on Pawnshops in Singapore, due to release this April.
During my six months in Europe I visited international film festivals. With what I gathered, I created Eurofilm Collective which consolidates information and reviews about film festivals around Europe.
This June, I was part of the Looking China project, which gathers international student filmmakers to tell a story through film. I was deeply fortunate to meet the local Bouyei people of 水头寨 (Shuitou Village), where everyone has the same surname 罗 (Luo). I documented the daily lives of a winemaking family. You can watch 水头故事 Stories by the River now.
I am also part of the Singapore International Film Festival Youth Jury & Critics Programme. Do check out our Youth Meets Film blog for the latest updates!
I am currently part of the Singapore Film Society, where I organise film events such as MINDS Film Festival and our 60th anniversary celebrations cum SHIRKERS Premiere. I also volunteer at the Singapore Children’s Society and Destination Imagination Singapore. I am also a huge fan of Yoga, and almost any other fitness activity.
Upon graduation, I hope to be involved in film festival and museum curation, as well as teaching primary school children.
I’m an enthusiastic person, so feel free to say hi! 🙂
