The Manila leg of Cinema Rehiyon Reloaded 2015 will showcase 57 short films from different regions in the country on October 12 and 13 at the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) Auditorium and at Teatro in Fort Santiago, Intramuros.
Cinema Rehiyon Reloaded, a project initiated by the Cinema Committee of NCCA, in cooperation with UPLB Foundation Inc., and pelikuLAB, headstarts in Intramuros before it drives with its other legs in Luzon provinces, such as in Baguio, Pangasinan, Tuguegarao, Zambales, and Sorsogon.
The featured short films were produced in different provinces and cities outside Metro Manila including Pampanga, Pangasinan, Laguna, Batangas, Naga, Cebu, Bacolod, Davao, Cagayan de Oro. This is made possible with the support of the Intramuros Administration and the Ilustrados, an Intramuros-based arts and culture organization.
The event is open to the public for free on a first-come, first-served basis. Audience members who have watched the screening at the Teatro will have free passes to the historical sites of Fort Santiago.
Short film programs will run from 10am to 5pm in both venues. The wide variety of short films tackles on different regions’ social, cultural, and historical milieu such as the Mindanao conflict, indigenous peoples, disaster, environment, children’s welfare, women issues, LGBT, human rights, among others.
Cinema Rehiyon Reloaded aims to expose the audience to the diverse culture of our country through films from different regions. It aims to build a wider venue for the harvest of regional films from the 7th year of Cinema Rehiyon film festival held in Cebu last August 2015.
