Francis Lau has worked extensively on different forms of media, including commercials, brand stories, broadcast programmes, and dramatic films. His work has traveled to festivals in different parts of the world and won critical awards. The Postman, a multiple award-winning short film, has the rare honour of having its world premiere in Romania and has since competed in two of the oldest and most important festivals there: DaKINO International Film Festival and Bucharest International Film Festival, of which the Prince of Romania is a patron. The film was also part of the celebrations for the Romanian Centennial in 2018.
As a filmmaker, Francis hopes to explore the human condition with a poetics that is identifiably Asian yet universal in its narrative sensibilities. He views such endeavour as an artistic extension of his first love – the written word. As a writer, Francis has presented his work at international literary festivals, notably Asean Universities Arts Festival, and Asean Writers’ Conference. He is an alumnus of WritersLab, a screenwriting initiative jointly run by Infocomm Media Development Authority [IMDA] of Singapore, and LaSalle College of the Arts to hothouse script development for film, web, and television.
Francis has an Honours degree in English Literature and professional qualifications in education [PGDE, Gifted].
