Viddsee is honoured and privileged to be participating at the Singapore Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai to share Singapore’s culture and identity through stories, on a global stage. Viddsee will be showcasing Singapore as a resilient and vibrant city through Viddsee Originals, which are all led by local filmmakers. Viddsee will also be bringing a piece of Singapore’s rich heritage and culture abroad for a cultural interchange through its participation.
Specifically, through the social documentary series 0 and My Kosong Plan (the latter made in partnership with WWF), Viddsee hopes that more individuals will be inspired to come together to support a shared vision towards building a more sustainable world for our people and communities.
As storytellers, Viddsee tells stories by making films. As a representative of Singapore, Viddseewill be featuring the Singapore Story through the content they have created:
Anthology Of Short Films: Scene City
Viddsee worked with local filmmakers in this anthology of short films to bring their stories to life in entertaining ways, enabling viewers around the world to peek into Singapore's people, culture, and places.
Memories On A Plate
Synopsis: Beyond subsistence, food serves as an important medium to understand our world. This documentary series sheds light on the people, relationships and memories we associate food with and celebrates how food brings people together. Featuring diverse profiles, the series guarantees a memorable and gastronomic journey as it delves into their personal and authentic stories while also exploring the cooking techniques applied.
Synopsis: What is 0? It could be a zero, a number that all our profiles are obsessed with in their own way. From someone who aims to spend zero dollars, to someone who aims to generate zero waste – 0 is the number that all our profiles eye. It could also be the idea of a circular economy, where one buys instead of repairs – or even scavenges – to reduce unwarranted production, and its burden on our planet.
My Kosong Plan
Synopsis: My Kosong Plan was done in partnership with WWF's Earth Hour 2021. Ever since filmmaker Eileen Chong did a documentary on reducing waste, she learned that Singaporeans use 820 million plastic bags from supermarkets each year. This piqued her curiosity about the environment, leading to her creation – a Kosong Plan to help Singapore reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Through her journey, she meets experts that teach her about climate change, tips on reducing waste and building lifestyle habits that have low environmental impact.
Viddsee will continue to drive efforts around promoting sustainability and are always open to collaborate with other like-minded partners and organisations to generate more impact.
