DILG calls on filmmakers to vie for first women’s film festival
by DILG release

Stepping up its advocacy on women empowerment through visual arts, the Department of the Interior and Local Government has initiated CineMarya, the first women’s film festival in the Philippines to be held annually.

DILG OIC-Sec. Eduardo M. Año invited filmmakers to vie for the P100,000 to be given to 10 grantees to produce inspiring short films about Filipino women.

“Storytelling through films is a tried and tested creative way for the Filipino viewers to better understand and appreciate an issue, inspire them, and engage them,” Año said.

“I call on Filipino men and women film artists to join Ci-neMarya’s first year of competition. Share your talent for the good cause of advancing awareness and education on gender and development (GAD),” he said.

Asec. Marjorie N. Jalosjos, who was delegated to handle the department’s GAD advocacy, said that interested filmmakers can submit their entries starting April to June to the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP).

Together with the FDCP and Philippine Commission on Women, the DILG will evaluate the 10 entries for CineMarya.

The awards during the debut of the film fest in March 2019 will be Best Picture, Best Director, Jury Prize, People’s Choice, and the Josefa Llanes Escoda Film Excellence Award.

“CineMarya stemmed from the DILG’s aim for local government units to mainstream GAD and the Magna Carta for Women into their local plans, programs, and activities,” said Jalosjos.

The CineMarya initiative is an educational and artistic support mechanism for LGUs vying for the DILG Seal of Good Local Governance.
