Raintree Pictures

MediaCorp Raintree Pictures (simplified Chinese: 星霖电影; traditional Chinese: 星霖電影; pinyin: Xīnglín Diànyĭng) is a film production company based in Singapore. The company, a division of MediaCorp Group, was established in 31 March 1996. The company occasionally ties up with other film companies to produce Asian or Western films. The company produced the Singaporean comedy, Liang Po Po: The Movie featuring the cross-dressing Jack Neo, which was an instant comedy hit in the republic. It financed a second film produced by Hong Kong's Film Unlimited, The Truth About Jane and Sam, which was directed by Derek Yee, a respected director in the region. That film garnered a Best New Performer nomination at the 19th Hong Kong Film Awards for its lead actress, Singapore's Fann Wong.

Since then, Raintree has gone on to co-produce many films with other countries, including The Eye, Infernal Affairs II and The Eye 2. Many of its films have won awards, such as the Golden Horse Awards from Taiwan, where child actress Megan Zheng won an award in the Best Newcomer Award category for her performance in the film Homerun. When the Singaporean satirical film I Not Stupid was released in 2002, it held the No. 1 position on the weekend box office chart in Singapore. The film was later shown in a number of countries such as Malaysia, Hong Kong and China. Many films produced by Raintree have also done well at local box offices and most have topped the charts for at least a week.
