FEU short films win IUF awards
Two films made by Far Eastern University (FEU) students under their Cinema Production (CNM2) classes won a total of six awards during the Indie Un-Film Festival awards night held last 21 July at the Bro. Andrew Gonzales Hall, De La Salle University (DLSU) in Manila.
In the Pamana category, “Sa Gabing Tanging Liwanag ay Paniniwala” (Belief as the Light in Darkness) brought home the Best Pamana Film award, Best Production Design for Ron Christian Alos, Best Sound Design for James Manalili and Best Cinematography for Rommel Ruiz. The new Pamana category aims to bring forth stories of Filipino heritage and culture.
Directed by Francis Guillermo, the film revolves around the continuous disappearances of townsfolk, prompting the local chieftain to find out who is behind it and where they are being brought. Upon conducting a search, he and his son came across a mysterious answer.
Meanwhile, Dama directed by Trish Ruedas Antonio, bagged Best Production Design for Reopaolo Nuñez and Best Actor for Rolando Inocencio in the Feature category. Inocencio plays a father who adopts a stray child to cope with his son’s death in a crisis-ridden world.
“Sa Gabing Tanging Liwanag ay Paniniwala” was submitted as a final CNM2 project to FEU Department of Communication chair and Film Society adviser Cherish Brillon while Dama was made under the class of former FEU Filmsoc adviser Seymour Sanchez.
The 15th annual intercollegiate digital film festival, organized by the DLSU Green Media Group, celebrates film by showcasing the competition’s finalists and the IUF Talks involving the country’s renowned filmmakers.
The talks, held at Warehouse Eight in Chino Roces Avenue last 14 July, had award-winning scriptwriter Clodualdo “Doy” del Mundo Jr. and filmmakers Antoinette Jadaone, Pepe Diokno, Ice Idanan and Kaj Palanca as speakers.
