Speakers' Bios
John Lui is a film reviewer with The Straits Times, a job he has held since 2008. For over 20 years, he has held journalist positions in various print and online organisations.

A typical day for Shawne Wang, Deputy Editor at F*** Magazine involves watching a movie (or two, or three), checking Empire Online and Collider.com for the latest casting news, and debating the merits of the latest blockbusters and arthouse releases. Prior to joining the F*** team in late 2012, she had already written almost four hundred reviews over the years. Her thoughts on films reside both at F*** Magazine's online portal (http://www.fmoviemag.com) and on her own review site (http://www.shawneofthedead.wordpress.com).

Stefan Shih started writing movie reviews on his blog A Nutshell Review in October 2004, and developed a keen interest in Singapore movies. More recently he's discovered a passion for mainstream Bollywood fare. Now he averages 5 movie reviews a week, and is also a contributor to online movie sites movieXclusive and Twitch.
