In its 36th year, the Business Management Society (BMS) of De La Salle University-Manila (DLSU) now aims to bring everyone one step closer to the cinema with their event entitled Cine 36: Pagsibol. The BMS Project Heads Atheena Lastimosa, Ralph Saavedra, Sophie Rendon, and Frances Yu aim to reignite the audience’s appreciation for Filipino-made films while simultaneously giving others a sneak peek at the entrepreneurial aspect of the film industry. Hitting two birds with one stone, this 4-day event aspires to bring everyone one step closer to the cinema, a place we all miss while ensuring that the proceeds will be given to the organization’s beneficiary, Jaime Hilario Integrated School La Salle in Bagac, Bataan.
The event will feature a workshop that aims to impart knowledge on the local film industry, specifically its business and entrepreneurial side. It will feature a talk from Cathy Garcia-Molina, a TV & film director and actor whose films include “Seven Sundays” and “Hello, Love, Goodbye”. The workshop will take place on May 25, 2022 (Wednesday) at 4:00 PM via Zoom. Those interested can pre-register at https://tinyurl.com/Cine36PagsibolWorkshopPreReg.
To show greater appreciation for locally made films, the event will also have a 3-day virtual film showing which will feature several Filipino films. All proceeds from ticket sales will go to the organization’s beneficiary. It will happen on May 26-28, 2022. Tickets can be purchased through http://tinyurl.com/Cine36PagsibolTicketPurchase.
Cine 36: Pagsibol is opening its doors to participants in and outside of DLSU-Manila. If you’re the kind of person who immerses themselves in Filipino-made films or just simply want to reignite that love for cinematic experiences, then feel free to visit the event’s social media pages for more information regarding the workshop, film showing, and registration – facebook.com/cine36 or @cine36.bms on Instagram.
So grab your popcorn, sit back, and let’s admire the works of our Filipino filmmakers!
