4:30 Bags NETPAC in Hawaii.

Royston Tan's "4:30" bags the NETPAC Award
at the 26th Hawaii International Film Festival

•Press Release 27 October 2006
The Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema (NETPAC) Award was given to director Royston Tan, the enfant terrible of Singaporean cinema, for his sophomore effort 4:30. 

Festival Jury's Quote on 4:30
"An exquisite study of loneliness, alienation and the human connection across the boundaries of age, language, culture and private angst".
Founded in 1990 by Cinemaya (Asia's finest journal of cinema) and
UNESCO, the Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema is an
international not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting Asian
film throughout the world. The prestigious NETPAC Award, presented
annually at international film festivals in Berlin, Cannes, Venice,
Rotterdam, Pusan, Singapore, Taiwan, Yamagata, Amiens and Hawaii, promotes Asian cinema by spotlighting exceptional works and discovering new talent.

We've had to ship the film print to another film festival. In lieu of
an encore presentation of 4:30, please read the comments of the NETPAC Jury President, Dr. Tom Brislin of the Academy of Creative Media, at the Festival Awards Ceremony.

"Your jurors screened 11 films in this competition, representing emerging filmmakers from Hong Kong, Korea, China, Japan, Singapore and the Philippines.

"We noted many of these films are strongly based in music and dance,
and we enjoy seeing the synergy that comes from such artistic blends.
We also noted a strong undercurrent of young love, first love, and
family love that demonstrated a love for the medium.

"Our love and admiration was strongest for 4:30 - an exquisite study of loneliness and alienation, and the seeking of human connections across the boundaries of age, language, culture and private angst. The jury was unanimous in its sentiment that the film lasted long after the screening went dark and the lights came up. The emotional weight of its story was carried out of the theatre by the viewers - the mark of a truly effective films. "We are pleased to present the 2006 NETPAC Jury Award for Best Emerging Filmmaker in Asian Cinema to Royston Tan for 4:30."
