Gina Tan

Based in Singapore, Gina Tan started off as a first assistant director working on features, television series and commercials. Her short film, Pencil has screened in international festivals and won Best Film and Best Screenplay at the Singapore National Youth Film Awards. Another short film she produced, The Drum, was in competition for the Clermont Ferrand International Short Film Festival. Her films put focus on the moral compasses of people. She relishes in exploring characters and the difficult decisions that one makes in such scenarios. Her experience with different genres has proven her to be a versatile director-producer with a sharp sensibility. She is currently working on her first feature film project titled 1708.
