5th Pandayang Lino Brocka Film and New Media Festival
Indeed, it is an experience to cherish being one of those blessed person to be a part of this open forum/ film showing / film festival at the University of the Philippines- Diliman film center from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm.
The 5th Pandayang Lino Brocka Film and New Media Festival held last August 29, 2013 having its theme " Pelikula at Pulitika; Diskurso hinggil sa relasyon ng U.S. at Pilipinas sa Pelikulang Pilipino" is a real eye-opener...
The event featured Dr. Roland Tolentino, Dean of College of Mass Communicatio of UP Diliman and Dr. Bienvenido Lumbera, a national artist for literature. I remember that i asked them about their perspective about "filipinized" hollywood movies featuring western way of living shown at television. For me, doing such things, is just like introducing
their ways nearer to the Filipino households.
Two films burst out of the big screen of the film center...
"Supremo", a political and historical film of Andres
Bonifacio featuring National Sovereignty.
Next is "PX", a Lino Brocka's Film and a masterpiece of it's
writer, Ricky Lee, who is present at that night.
