Cinemalaya Film Congress 2009 Slated in July at the CCP

The Cinemalaya Film Congress 2009 will be held on July 21-22 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino. The Film Congress is a major event of the Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival and Competition which is now on its fifth year and billed Cinemalaya Cinco.

The Cinemalaya Film Congress will carry the theme Linking Digital Highways and will assess the output of indie filmmakers in the last five years. The Congress will attempt to gauge the growth of the indie film from a national perspective, so that the value of the artistic achievements of indie films may be properly weighed and so that indie filmmakers may assess for themselves, together with their audiences and sponsors, their prospects for development in the future.

Specifically, the objectives of the Film Congress are to identify the major centers of independent filmmaking in the country, to assess the artistic achievement of the cinematic works of indie filmmakers in the last five years from the point of view of artistic vision, integrity and independence, to invite indie filmmakers from the different regions to speak about the state of indie filmmaking in their areas and to establish a network of indie filmmaking centers all over the country.

Filmmakers, writers, critics, members of the academe and industry will speak at the Congress.

The Cinemalaya Film Congress is presented by the Cinemalaya Foundation, Cultural Center of the Philippines, the Film Development Council of the Philippines and Econolink Investments Inc. Cinemalaya is an all-digital film competition aimed at discovering new Filipino filmmakers.

For information, please call the CCP Media Arts Division at tel. nos. 832-1125 locals 1702 and 1704.
