De La Salle University Department of Communication, together with Team Communication, will be co-hosting the Cinema Rehiyon Film Festival and Forum of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA). As part of the celebration of the National Arts Month this February, the 10th edition of Cinema Rehiyon will be held on February 25-28, 2018 in Metro Manila, with Day 2 (Feb 26) to be held at the Natividad Fajardo Auditorium, Br. Andrew Gonzalez Hall, from 8:30AM to 6:00PM.

Dubbed as “Cinema Rehiyon X: One Country. One Cinema. One Future”, the festival aims to be the platform for critical conversations for shaping the future of Philippine Cinema and to highlight the value of cultivating regional cinema and its valuable contributions to the development of national cinema. For four days, the festival will bring together delegates and participants from all over the country for a series of film screenings, forums, workshops, and activities. These are all geared towards supporting the flourishing of regional cinema, the continued development of Filipino filmmakers, and the convergence of stakeholders in fostering the growth of the Philippine Film Industry. The festival is expected to be attended by around 200-300 participants from all over the country and is free of charge.

This is an important community engagement endeavor for DLSU as Cinema Rehiyon has served as a crucial springboard of independent film making and regional cinema in the country, one of the thrusts strongly supported by the DLSU Department of Communication.

The full festival program is available from Cinema Rehiyon’s Facebook page. Panelists for the forum will include film makers from the region whose films will be screened during the festival, as well as DLSU Department of Communication Faculty and staunch advocates of regional and independent cinema: Prof Clodualdo Del Mundo, Dr. Miguel Rapatan and Mr. Ed Cabagnot.

Nobel Laureate for Literature Mario Vargas Llosa

Nobel Laureate in Literature Mario Vargas Llosa will be at De La Salle University on November 8 to receive an honorary doctorate in literature, the highlight of his visit to the country.

University administrators, faculty, students, writers, and members of the diplomatic corps are expected to attend the ceremony which will be held at the Teresa Yuchengco Auditorium.

Vargas Llosa studied in La Salle schools in Bolivia and Peru for his elementary education.

In 2010, he received the Nobel Prize in Literature, “for his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual’s resistance, revolt, and defeat” (Nobel Prize Foundation). According to the Swedish Academy, Vargas Llosa is “a divinely gifted storyteller.”

His critically acclaimed novels and fictions include: La ciudad y los perros (1963, Eng. trans. The Time of the Hero), La tía Julia y el escribidor (1977, Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter), La guerra del fin del mundo (1981, The War of the End of the World), El sueño del celta (2011, The Dream of the Celt), El héroe discrete (2013, The Discreet Hero), and Cinco esquinas (2016, Five Corners). His collections of essays include Sables y utopías. Visiones de América Latina (2009, Sabres and Utopias: Visions of Latin America) and La civilización del espectáculo (2012, The Civilization of the Spectacle).

Aside from the Nobel, Vargas Llosa has received many prizes and awards such as the Prince of Asturias Award for Literature, 1986; Miguel de Cervantes Prize in Spanish-language literature, 1994; PEN/Nabokov Award, 2002; and the XII Don Quijote Journalism Award.
