Sorok Short Film Festival

Sorok Uni Foundation, Inc., a humanitarian organization working for and with the persons affected by leprosy (PALs) in erasing the stigma on our forgotten neighbors, invites all amateur and professional film makers to join Sorok Short Film Festival (SSFF) – a short film competition that aims to raise social awareness on those that have been prejudiced by the society due to their disease, lack of financial capabilities, and disabilities.

Sorok Short Film Festival AGAIN2NEW

SSFF is providing the youth an avenue for the creative exposition of their talents. The foundation is after the perspective of the current generation in reaching out to the unfortunate as seen through their lenses.

The theme revolves around Kapwang Gawa, based on the Tagalog kawang-gawa, meaning charitable works. Kapwang Gawa, a derivative of kawang-gawa, is simply doing open-handed deeds for our needy fellow Filipinos.

Five judges, who are pillars in the film industry, will judge the entries and will determine who will bag the P100,000 grand prize.

So, if you think you have this genius of an idea and are up for the challenge, gather your friends (or crew), start drafting a storyline and capture it in motion picture now, for you might just be the first SSFF grand prize winner.

Deadline of submission of entries is on August 31, 2014.

The awarding ceremony will be on September 27. The venue will be announced later.

Entry forms can be downloaded here: fb.com/sorokshortfilmfest or sorokuni.org/ssff

Dulaang UP’s Measure for Measure/ Hakbang sa Hakbang

One of William Shakespeare’s best-known plays, Measure for Measure, opens Dulaang UP’s 39th season and celebrates Shakespeare’s 450th birth anniversary. This staging also features Ron Capinding’s Filipino adaptation Hakbang sa Hakbang, and is under the direction of Alexander Cortez who is known for his deft handling of Shakespearean plays (DUP’s Macbeth and Richard III).

Dulaang UP’s Measure for Measure

What constitutes justice? Morality? Love? Power? Forgiveness? In Measure for Measure, one is invited to examine these themes against a backdrop of a city that is in a steady moral decline–a most fitting juxtaposition with our country’s current socio-political milieu.
