Whether told on a smartphone or on the big screen, we know everyone has a story to tell. That is why we proudly sponsored a workshop to cultivate the next generation of storytellers and invited Brunei feature film director and Origin Films founder Siti Kamaluddin (see Progresif Profiles on page 20) to share her talent and knowledge with our youth.
The “Yasmine” director encouraged students to be progressive and tell their own stories. During the two-day workshop she explored the ins and outs of acting and filmmaking with students from Raja Isteri Girls High School, Sultan Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien College, Pengiran Anak Puteri Hajah Masna Secondary School, Muda Hashim Secondary School and Sufri Bolkiah Secondary School. Apart from the invaluable lessons in film and acting techniques, students were also inspired to explore their own creativity, follow their passions and live their dreams.
