What is UPelikula’s Mission?
UP Cebu’s Mass Communication program launches this year’s UPelikula themed “Lantawa, Paminawa, Pamati-a”.
On its fourth run, the Organizing Committee kept the doors wide open for anyone who aspires to be part of the film-making industry.
UPelikula is a video productions contest that aims to put the spotlight on talented amateurs and video artists who go often unnoticed by the general public. UPelikula hopes to be a stepping stone in bringing Filipino Art to the world.
The theme of this year’s UPelikula “Lantawa, Paminawa, Pamati-a” is a direct Cebuano translation of “See it, Hear it, Feel it.” Films are meant to be seen, heard, and felt, same way to the oppressed, marginalized and underprivileged.
This year’s UPelikula wants to have a purpose: to take time and notice the oppressed the same way we take time to appreciate films. The only way to develop is to face the problem, and to face the problem, we have to see, to listen, and to feel the demanding society around us.
