Objectifs’ annual series dedicated to showcasing Singapore films turns to the small screen for inspiration. Telemovies commissioned by local television stations have entertained generations of Singaporeans not just in their homes but also on television sets (and, more recently, digital devices) in void decks, community centres and hawker centres across the island.
In Watch Local 2017, a selection of telemovies from the 90s to 2016 will come to life again, on the big screen for the first time. The films range from original scripts to adaptations of short stories and stage plays by local writers.
