Singapore’s MDA develops initiative to fund local filmmakers
Singapore – The Singapore Film Commission (SFC), part of the Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA), has launched the New Talent Feature Grant (NTFG), an initiative that aims to help up-and-coming film directors start their careers in feature film-making.
The NTFG supports film directors to produce their first feature films in a variety of genres, including those of artistic and cultural value, such as documentaries, festival-oriented works, and films in non-English languages (i.e. Malay and Tamil). The NTFG also supports films meant for theatrical release, festivals and broadcast (i.e. feature-length telemovies).
The NTFG, which allows directors to own the intellectual property of their films, will fund up to S$250,000 or 100 percent of the production budget (whichever is lower) for each feature film. NTFG requires recipients to use at least 40 percent of the grant on Singapore spend – cost items incurred in Singapore or on Singaporeans and Permanent Residents.
