11 October 2018 – The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) today launched Fast Forward, a $1 million fund to encourage Singaporean and Singapore-based content creators to create local content for a global audience.
Through this Fund, STB is seeking to support films, videos and animations that creatively feature Singapore and bring to life the Passion Made Possible brand or Passion Tribes. Applications will be open from 1 – 31 January, 2019, and content creators based in Singapore – such as filmmakers, vloggers, media companies and creative agencies – are welcome to apply.
Mr Terrence Voon, Director, Digital and Content, STB, said: "Singapore has a passionate community of content creators and storytellers who are already producing inspiring content and telling a great Singapore story. As part of our marketing strategy, we want to support home-grown talent and showcase content about our people, spirit and attitude in an authentic way. Through Fast Forward, we hope to turn more of such story ideas and concepts into reality, and bring their work to a global stage."
