A little background of CMPA.. It is a short film competition created to fulfill Cathay Organisation’s conviction towards the development of Singapore’s film industry. Expending its assets in cinema exhibition as the platform for aspiring filmmakers to showcase their talent, Cathay Organisation pioneers the path as the first and only movie exhibitor in Singapore to organise its own short film competition.

My top 3 favourite would be 'Poppie Pop', 'Memoirs' and 'A Part From Me'!
It's really interesting to see how creative they were in their videos & I have to say that their filming/editing was DAMN GOOD!!!
