The year 2020 has seen many people in Singapore and around the world spending more time at home, and attempting to connect with others while apart. Our Singapore community has witnessed many stories of resilience, selflessness and kindness. One question arises as we attempt to map our way forward in this post-pandemic world: what does the idea of “Home in Singapore” mean to you?

Singapore Art Museum’s (SAM) Project 2020 is an open call for you to document your idea of “Home in Singapore 2020” through a three-minute short film produced in 48 hours. No fancy equipment is required; just use your personal devices to capture your thoughts and experiences. 

Submissions will need to incorporate one of the four surprise elements, to be announced on 8 August at 8pm on Facebook and Instagram.

20 films depicting 20 ideas of home will be selected from the open call for an online showcase. Each selected film will be awarded $1,000! 

Films will be selected by a panel comprising:

  • Mr Royston Tan, Singapore filmmaker 
  • Ms Teng Yen Hui, Assistant Curator, Singapore Art Museum 
  • Ms Dee Chia, Head of Education and Programmes, Singapore Art Museum
