The announcement of shortlisted nominees will be revealed on 2 July.

NYFA is organised by *SCAPE‟s media programming pillar, *SCAPEmedia, in partnership with

Sinema Media, a film project consultancy, management and training company based in Singapore.

The competition is part of *SCAPEmedia’s strategy to serve as a community platform for budding youth talents who have the passion and commitment in honing their craft, by enriching them with knowledge and opportunities to develop their skills, as well as linking them with media partners and stakeholders.

Other activities happening in conjunction with NYFA include a series of *SCAPEmedia SKILL workshops which will be conducted in June by well-known industry names such as Royston Tan (Chuan Pictures Pte Ltd), Nicholas Chee (Sinema Media Pte Ltd) and Kazz Sato (Muse Pte Ltd).

In addition to the workshops, a series of *SCAPEmedia INSIGHT sessions will be conducted by internationally renowned film practitioners such as Matt Siegel for a hands-on Panasonic Varicam 35 master class and a GH4 camera workshop, and Karl Soule for a video workflow workshop using Adobe Creative Cloud.

The competition will culminate in a by-invite only Award Ceremony happening on 2 August with Lawrence Wong, Minister of Culture, Community and Youth, gracing the event.
