My first independent short film in 10 years is an experimental film for grad school. This is going to be my most personal film to date and it feels great to work on something new (aside from going back to my roots) after working on mostly branded shorts during my indie hiatus.
I read this post, alongside the many news reports about the 2019 Academy Awards lobbying for the qualification of the Alfonso Cuaron film “Roma,” being a Netflix film with minimal theatrical release
This term’s Filmmaker Focus in Forum (FFF) is entitled “One Shot: A Forum on Shooting Your First Feature Film” featuring Pepe Diokno and his first feature, the Cinemalaya film “Engkwentro.”
Indeed, Mr. Eric de Guia whom we dearly love as Kidlat Tahimik Jr. (because he said his son is the Sr.), lives up to the name he is best known for — two somehow contrasting but very powerful Filipino words rolled into one to create an even more powerful energy for its bearer.
This event entitled “CinePHlix,” features a Q&A for the featured films and filmmakers and a film forum about “the blurring line between cinema and television and the rise of online distribution.”
It would be great to celebrate by reliving that wonderful moment via a presentation nearest to my point of view as the bride — one of the three major videos for our wedding — the entire wedding from preps to ceremony to packup through the chronicling of my GoPro bridal bouquet in a 30-minute video.
In celebration of the 100 years of Philippine Cinema, Filipino film workers organized the “Sandaan: Philippine Cinema Centennial Conference” at the University of the Philippines Film Institute (UPFI) and De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (BenildeFilm) this September 2017.
This free event entitled “It’s More Fun in the PhiliFILMS” is open to the public. It kicks off with the screening of Ice Idanan’s critically acclaimed CineFilipino film “Sakaling Hindi Makarating,” followed by a forum on film tourism.
Some people tend to say, the best kind of work you can get is working with your passion and not treating your work as a job. Motherhood, a very fulfilling and miraculous experience one can have, is not a job and a mother doesn’t get paid for it in any of the world’s currency.
I couldn’t agree more when someone said that more woman filmmakers should be included in the syllabi of academicians, whether in major subjects of film students or any related media subjects and electives, especially those of mass communication and communication arts students. Academic papers, journals, books, and even blogs and vlogs that are easily accessible by everyone, should be able to find many female names to feature. These initiatives will further help level the playing field for anyone — to the point when gender issues as we know them would simply become a thing of the past in the Philippine film industry.
