Many Singapore celebrities have been leaving Mediacorp in the last several years. In the past month alone, we've seen three of them announcing their departures from the local media company: celebrity couple Andie Chen and Kate Pang as well as Jeanette Aw. Here's a look back at all of the stars who have moved on.
Singapore actress/director Michelle Chong, famous for roles such as Lulu, was on the red carpet for the premiere of FUERZA BRUTA “WA!” at the Stellar Ball, Shinagawa Prince Hotel in Tokyo on Tuesday (1 Aug).
Michelle Chong’s Best Director win at the Canada International Film Festival 2017 has come under fire for not being as prestigious as it sounds. A report about questionable film festivals by Indie Wire, a film industry and review website, stated that the Canada International Film Festival was bought by a Las Vegas venture capitalist Monty Lapica, along with the Nevada Film Festival, Honolulu Film Awards, and Mountain Film Festival. Anyone could buy these festivals for a “price in thousands” and hold their own film festival. Lapica has since sold off the latter two festivals.
