Named ”Singapore’s latest film funnyman” by The Straits Times, Jacen Tan is one of Singapore’s most exciting young filmmakers. In the pre-YouTube days of 2005, Jacen’s first short film, Tak Giu (Kick Ball), became a viral hit on the Internet, crashing servers due to overwhelming traffic.
In 2015, Jacen was awarded the POSB Storytellers Grant for his documentary, Homeground.
Jacen combines his love for horror comedy and his experiences from serving in the army to make his first feature film, Zombiepura. The film took 7 years to develop and finance, and premiered at Scream Asia Film Festival in Oct 2018.
