Singapore Hosts World’s First Fully 3-D Based Film Festival

3DX: 3D Film & Entertainment Technology Inaugural Event Will Commence from November 19 – 23, 2008
Singapore has been named the host city of the world’s first fully 3-D based film and entertainment technology festival taking place from November 19 – 23, 2008. The Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA) will host the festival officially named 3DX: 3D Film & Entertainment Technology Festival. Jim Chabin of 3D Partners Ltd will serve as 3DX executive producer of the five day event taking place in Asia. It is also supported by the Singapore Tourism Board.

Said Dr. Christopher Chia, Chief Executive Officer, MDA: “The development of a world class 3-D festival in Singapore highlighting the creative talent and technology in 3-D film underlines Singapore’s commitment to play an active role to expand the boundaries of 3-D. 3DX will provide a world stage and convergence point for filmmakers and technology companies to showcase their works for audiences and consumers. It will also provide industry players the opportunity to generate discussions on the latest trends and developments.”

In highlighting what will be an international selection of films and properties for 3DX, the first two films chosen for the festival are FLY ME TO THE MOON, an animated family film from Belgium’s nWave Pictures, featuring characters voiced by Kelly Ripa, Nicollette Sheridan, Tim Curry and Ed Begley Jr., and JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH, a live action adventure from New Line Cinema and Walden Media, starring Brendan Fraser, Josh Hutcherson and Anita Briem.

The current list of 3DX organizations and media sponsors includes the Motion Picture Association (MPA), NBC Universal TV Asia, Star TV India and Star Movies. Other Singapore Government agencies backing 3DX are the Singapore Economic Development Board and Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore.

“We are honored that Singapore is the host destination for the first-ever 3DX: 3D Film & Entertainment Technology Festival. The event will augment our position as a thought leader in the media, design and content development cluster, as we continue to work with partners such as Media Development Authority to establish related business events that can bring synergistic value to this key economic cluster in Singapore and the thriving global media industry. Hosting shows such as 3DX: 3D Film & Entertainment Technology Festival will elevate our status as an exchange capital and help cement Singapore’s standing as one of the pioneers in embracing and supporting 3D technology and film production in the world,” said Mr. Aloysius Arlando, Assistant Chief Executive, Business Travel and MICE Group, Singapore Exhibition and Convention Bureau, a group of the Singapore Tourism Board.
