Abra invites students to join film festival
by PIA-Abra

BANGUED, Abra – The province joins the celebration of the centennial of Philippine Cinema with the Abrenian Heritage Film Festival. 

The festival aims to discover, encourage, and support the aspiring filmmakers from the province to  articulate, interpret, and express the Abrenian cultural heritage through filmmaking in short film or documentary.

Open to all teachers and students under the Department of Education in the 27 municipalities of Abra, the festival gives opportunity to aspiring and talented filmmakers to showcase their skills and abilities in cinematography.

Entries for short film should be five minutes long and 10 minutes for documentary.

Deadline of submission of entries is Aug. 31, 2019 at the Abra Schools Division Office, which interested individuals may visit for the mechanics, entry forms, and other information. 

The first provincial film festival is spearheaded by film ambassador and multi-awarded Abrenian filmmaker Dexter Macaraeg and the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) in partnership with DepEd Abra and Philippine Information Agency-Abra Information Center.

Macaraeg described the Abrenian Heritage Film Festival, his brainchild, as a venue and platform that will value their outputs in terms of narrative, characters, and technical aspects; and how these creative elements weaved together into one coherent, whole production using the elements of cinema.

Macaraeg is the founder of Sine Abreño, which is recognized by the FDCP as provincial film ambassador and accredited by the Department of Trade and Industry.

He earlier conducted multiple seminar-workshops on filmmaking in schools in the different towns in the province, hoping that the participants will be able to craft their films with competitiveness and creativity.

Macaraeg also spearheaded a film symposium in Bangued participated by over 100 schools teachers. With support from the FDCP, sessions on understanding film through education, creating film synergy in the student body, and crash course on filmmaking for educators were held.  

“This is the first ever film festival of Abra. It is their chance to exhibit their short films and documentaries in big screens, which has never been done in the past,” Macaraeg said.
