Experience VR first-hand through showcases and games with Helloholo and Meshminds.
If you have missed the Singapore Media Festival (SMF) pop-ups at Tampines and Raffles City earlier this month, fret not! In an effort to bring the festival closer to the public, this year’s Festival Village is open to public and will feature an exciting slate of activities such as workshops, performances and film screenings.
Held at the Read Bridge at Clarke Quay from December 1 to 3, visitors can learn coding through card games at workshops with Codomo’s Potato Pirates and experience virtual reality (VR) first-hand through showcases and games with Helloholo and Meshminds.
In addition, there will also be performances by local artistes like ShiGGA Shay on Saturday (from 8.45pm) and Sam Rui on Sunday, as well as free outdoor screenings of short films and animation such as Princess by Andre Quek, Bunga Sayang by Royston Tan and Oddbods’ new Christmas Special daily between 6pm to 10pm.
This year, the Asian Television Awards, which celebrates the best talents in Asia’s TV industry, will be screened ‘live’ at the Festival Village on Dec 1 at 8pm. Gather with your friends and family to cheer on local stars like Zoe Tay and Felicia Chin, who are in the running for Best Actress, as well as big names such as South Korean star Kim Jong Kook, Taiwan’s Bii, and local songbird Joanna Dong, who will be performing at the event.
The Singapore Media Festival Day Out takes place at the Festival Village at Read Bridge, Clarke Quay from Dec 1 to 3. Admission is free.
