You read about an award-winning short film by a local film-maker - but then have no idea how to actually watch it. But fret no more. A new channel on YouTube was launched today that offers short films by local directors for free.

The SGFilm Channel will also show trailers of upcoming local feature films.

Feted director Royston Tan, 36, says: "Whenever I travel to festivals with a new film, people always request to see my other films. I can now refer them to SGFilm Channel where they can watch my films and also discover other short films from Singapore."

His 10-minute-long Sons (2000), about a father seeking to reach out to his son, is one of the works available on the channel.
