Shane Lim


Shane Lim (b. 1993) is a filmmaker and photographer. In 2020, he graduated from The National Film and Television School with an MA in Directing Fiction. His debut short film November premiered at the 25th Singapore International Film Festival and was nominated for the Golden Reel for best short film at the 31st Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival. In 2019, November was added to the Asian Short Film Archive in the University of Toronto’s Mississauga Library. He has since made numerous shorts, among them a trio of experimental films exploring hybrid forms – together, they reflect the impact of social media in the lives of young people. Vessel premiered on Vimeo's ‘Staff Picks’, #L4L screened at the 31st Filmfest-Dresden and Into the Ripple received a nomination for Best Student Short at the 5th Birmingham Film Festival. His first music video for Rina Sawayama’s Alterlife, conceptualised and shot in 24 hours, premiered on VICE and was later featured on VOGUE, THE VINYL FACTORY and KALTBLUT. As a director, he seeks emotional truth and grounds daring experimentation in heartfelt storytelling. His work aims to provoke questions about culture and society with the hope of creating dialogue to encourage change. His latest short film, 'Dawn', a sci-fi romance exploring class and inequality, premieres at the SciFi Film Festival in Sydney, Australia.
