Singaporean Film

Just joined sgfilm.com, an online forum for Singaporean film buffs and filmmakers. (I just lurk, really - haven't said a word yet.) Found this interesting piece on "why cinema is important to Singapore", which carries the reminder that this used to be a thriving film centre back in the 1960s. Here's the sgfilm blog.

Speaking of online forums, one day I'd like to study the sociological relationship between the rise of the Internet and the corresponding expression of the passions of Singaporeans... seems like a lot of people with previously obscure hobbies (always a problem in a country with just 4 million people) can coalesce much better with the Net.
