Chow Yun Fat, Sophie Marceau set for ScreenSingapore red carpet


Hong Kong superstar Chow Yun Fat and French actress Sophie Marceau will walk the red carpet at the upcoming Asia TV Forum & Market and ScreenSingapore 2012, where 13 new local films will be showcased.

These Singapore films are slated to be released next year (2013). At least seven of these films will be featured at Sneak Peeks, an event organised by the Media Development Authority to market Singapore films to international distributors. They include horror film Ghost Child, xinyao drama That Girl In Pinafore and Jack Neo's Ah Boys To Men II.

This is the 13th edition of the Asia Television Forum and the second edition of ScreenSingapore. It is the first time the two are being held together. The event will be held from Dec 4 to 7 at Sands Expo and Convention Center at Marina Bay Sands.

It is a platform for the global TV and film industry to showcase their offerings through a series of activities including red carpet premieres, a TV and film content market, screenings of upcoming releases and conferences. It costs $1,095 for an all-access pass to the market and conferences.
