Zhang Ziyi joins ScreenSingapore ambassadors

The Board of ScreenSingapore announced today international superstar Zhang Ziyi (HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS, CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN DRAGON, MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA), has formalised her support for the inaugural event, joining a host of distinguished figures within the international film community as an event Ambassador. Albert Lee, Oliver Stone, Wayne Wang and Harold Shaw are among the list of high profile names previously announced along with CJ Group VP Miky Lee and Kishore Lulla of Eros International.

The constantly growing list of such high profile artists and professionals as the event approaches exemplifies the continuing support the multi-million dollar event is receiving from across the globe.

Commenting on her new appointment Zhang Ziyi said, “ScreenSingapore will no doubt prove to be a meaningful event, a platform from where both Asian and Western cinema will flourish together, promoting cross-cultural working relationships and helping bring international projects to an even wider audience. It is an honour to be involved with such an exciting project.”

Greg Coote, Chairman of the Board of ScreenSingapore added, "We are very honoured to have Zhang Ziyi on board supporting our inaugural event. Her international stature and talent are unparalleled and this exemplifies our plans for the event itself. No doubt ScreenSingapore 2011 will be a great success. ”

Tom Hanks will attend this Asia Pacific premiere at the newly refurbished and iconic Shaw Organisation’s Lido Theatre on Orchard Road in the heart of Singapore.

To be held from 5 to 12 June 2011, ScreenSingapore, the first international cinema event in Singapore, aims to bring together movie stars, renowned directors and eminent film industry professionals to exchange ideas, business opportunities and showcase film products. Leveraging on the growing interest in Asian content, the very strong theatrical marketplace and Singapore’s position as a globally connected regional gateway, ScreenSingapore is set to reinforce Singapore as the global media capital of the region.

The Board of ScreenSingapore consists of Chairman of Latitude Entertainment, Greg Coote, who is serving as the Chairman of the Board, Golden Globe-winning Director, Shekhar Kapur, Ashok Amitraj, Chairman & CEO of Hyde Park, Michael J. Werner, Chairman of Fortissimo Films, Wayne Duband of Wayne Duband Consulting, DDA Public Relations Founder and DDA Consulting Chairman Dennis Davidson, Aubeck Kam, CEO of MDA, Cassandra Tay, Director of Communications of MDA and Dr Christopher Chia, Senior Advisor, Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts (MICA).
