“A film is such a collaborative medium,” says Singapore-based filmmaker Tania Sng, an ASEF alumna. “It’s about people. And I love people. That’s why I work in film. I have moments where I want to be left alone and I have moments where I crave creativity with others.” ASEF met with Tania, to talk about what she has been up to and what her plans are for the future.

This was organised in partnership with ASEF featuring some of their films followed by roundtables and meetings in Paris and Berlin. This trip to Europe made Tania even more excited about collaborating with people from other cultural backgrounds.
