To celebrate TIONG BAHRU’s screenings in Sydney and Melbourne, we are giving away TEN copies of the film on DVD. (Details of TIONG BAHRU’s screenings in Australia can be found here).

The DVD includes the film, along with an interview with Joe and Christine shot on location in the TIONG BAHRU market and 19 of the top WHERE THE HEART IS films.

The DVD comes accompanied by a souvenir booklet of beautiful production images by photographers Samantha Tio and Alecia Neo and featuring essays by poet Alvin Pang, playwright and poet Ng Yi-Sheng and journalist Tan Shzr Ee.

The limited edition DVD is NOT available for purchase so this may be your one opportunity to get a personal copy of the film.

For a chance to win, send an email with AUSTRALIA in the subject line to

Winners will be drawn at random on 30th June, and notified immediately after.

Please note: this competition is only available to residents of Australia.

Good luck!
