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.
