After my 10-year hiatus on independent filmmaking, wrapping up post for my very first experimental film

A young filmmaker’s tale about National Artist for Cinema Kidlat Tahimik

An Epiphany: Philippine cinema’s powerful Pinays + the need for more female presence in film studies, books, and academic endeavors

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.
