the 12th Shanghai IFF

SINGAPORE: The names read off like the global film market’s Who’s Who at the 12th Shanghai International film festival. 

Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle is presiding over a jury for the festival top honours - the Golden Goblet Awards - with American actress Andie MacDowell, Infernal Affairs director Andrew Lau and Swiss director Xavier Koller (Journey of Hope). 

And Singapore’s having a say as well - film-maker Royston Tan is serving time as a jury member for the Asian New Talent Award 2009. 

The youngest jury member in the history of the film festival, which concludes Sunday, Tan joined a panel headed by South Korean film-maker Im Kwon-taek, alongside Chinese actress Yu Nan, Chinese director Zhu Wen and Thai director Nonzee Nimibutr. 

Another Singaporean, Boi Kwong, is up for the New Talent award for his Ah-Beng cautionary gang flick The Days. 

“I think it’s a great honour to be able to pair up with Im Kwon-taek, a veteran director who has made 10 over films!” the 32-year-old director told TODAY. 

“And even though all of us (the jury members) had differences, the fact that we had a common goal to discover new talent is amazing.” 

When asked to share a memorable experience during China’s only international movie competition, Tan said there was one highlight on top of mingling with stars like Boyle and MacDowell. 

“There were tons of Chinese who actually sang along during the 12 Lotus screening. I was really happily surprised!”
