I know I have been a bit slow with the plugging of this event, but IPT takes its toil on one's aging body. Anyway I digress.
A film mentorship programme by The Substation's Moving Images, Reel Revolution runs from 4th July to 30th August, and this year's theme is "Our Environment". Reel Revolution is a youth filmmaking mentorship programme that centers around social issues, and the introductory seminar starts this Friday. So if you have a burning issue related to the theme, or just curious enough to want to participate and sit in the events, you know what to do!

And of course, now comes the best part: Admission to all events are free and open to the public but because places are limited, you're to RSVP your attendance. Oh, in case you don't already know, Tan Pin Pin says that The Substation Theatre got new aircon, ok? :-)
