Wee Li Lin, Director at Bobbing Buoy Films, is one of the pioneer female filmmakers in Singapore. Her work ranges from feature films, shorts, telemovies to online/ commercial content, and has a distinct comedic and fantastical touch. She has won several awards locally and internationally such as “Best Director” at the Singapore International Film Festival, and a “Star Award” at the Shanghai International Film Festival for actress Joanna Dong’s starring role in Li Lin’s sophomore feature Forever.
Her films have travelled to prestigious festivals such as the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, the Cairo International Film Festival, the Shanghai International Film Festival, the Hawaii International Film Festival and many others.
In 2011, the Substation’s Singapore short film awards presented Li Lin with an honorary award for her commitment to the local filmmaking scene. Li Lin is a graduate of Brown University (BA in Art Semiotics) and NYU-Tisch School of the Arts (MFA in Dramatic Writing). Li Lin is also a film educator teaching film related studies at various tertiary institutions around Singapore, something she enjoys tremendously.
