Film mak­ing sem­i­nar and Cordillera cou­ture fash­ion show

Sun.Star Baguio - - Live! -

We be­lieve that films, short or long, have a great im­pact in the cul­ture, ed­uca tion, en­ter­prise and so­cio-eco­nomic sta­tus of the coun­try. It seems how­ever that the ma­jor­ity of Filipinos sup­port for­eign rather than lo­cal films, es­pe­cially in­de­pen­dent / in­die films. There­fore, this “Film Mak­ing Sem­i­nar” was or­ga­nized by the CCSSI to in­spire and to show the cur­rent and as­pir­ing lo­cal film mak­ers that Filipino film mak­ers are in­deed win­ners and are glob­ally ac­claimed”. - CCSSI

The “Cordillera Cen­ter for Sus­tain­able Solutions Inc.” (CCSSI), a so­cial en­ter­prise or­ga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cated to the im­ple­men­ta­tion of holis­tic com­mu­nity-driven de­vel­op­ment pro­grams and peo­ple em­pow­er­ment will be host­ing a film-mak­ing sem­i­nar this De­cem­ber 17, from 4 PM to 11 PM at the Opal Hall, Ho­tel Supreme. Ex­perts in the field, Dex­ter Macaraeg, an Abre­nian, ac­tor/di­rec­tor, who started mak­ing short films in 2016, a Na­tional and In­ter­na­tional awardee (In­ter­na­tional Film Fest Man­hat­tan 2018), will talk on “How to be a Suc­cess­ful Film­maker”; and Luis Li­wanag, who will talk on “Shoot­ing Sto­ries with Im­pact”. Li­wanag is a prom­i­nent and re­spected photo/video jour­nal­ist in the coun­try whose works were pub­lished in dis­tin­guished in­ter­na­tional pa­pers. Also worth men­tion­ing is a re­cent co-di­rected short film “Duterte’s Hell” which has won him a first prize in the World Press Photo Dig­i­tal Sto­ry­telling Con­test Short Form Cat­e­gory.

The very first screen­ing of “Tata Pilo”, a documentary film on Na­tional Her­itage by Dex­ter Macaraeg will also take place. Ac­tors in this film, Ray­mond Ri­noza and John Remel Flotildes will grace this spe­cial oc­ca­sion.

Adding to the ex­cite­ment is a Cordilleran Cou­ture Fash­ion Show of lo­cal de­sign­ers (Glory Payangdo, Jerome Bagni and An­drew Visaya Jr.). Fea­tured Mod­els are Team Lakay, Kim Basali (Mutya ng Pilip­inas North­ern Lu­zon 2018), Rox­anne Bas­tian (Ms. Benguet 2017), Weyn­del­ruth Wa­sit (Ms. Sum­mer Cap­i­tal 2018), Keanu Fer­nando (Man of the World Philip­pines 2018), Dex­ter Cawaing (Mr. Kabayan 2018 and 3rd Run­ner-up Mr. Benguet 2018), and the Scin­tilla Mod­els.
