IMDA Gears Up for Eighth Edition of the Singapore Media Festival


The eighth edition of the Singapore Media Festival is set to take place from November 25 to December 5, hosted by the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA).

The event encompasses the Asia TV Forum & Market (ATF), ScreenSingapore (SS), Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF), VidCon Asia Summit (VidCon) and SG Comic Con (SGCC). The hybrid edition this year is focused on connecting local Singaporean talent to top showrunners from the international market. There will be 30 concepts pitched at ATF with the view to helping local talent secure financing and co-production opportunities.

“Through the Singapore Media Festival (SMF) and other programs, we continue to strengthen Singapore’s position as the region’s most vibrant media hub, to bring global opportunities to our creative talent and media businesses,” said Justin Ang, assistant chief executive for media and innovation at IMDA. “This year’s SMF will see us connecting top showrunners to our creative talents, to ignite opportunities to create exciting content together for the region and beyond.”
