Letran film to compete in prestigious Korean fest

Forwarded by ICOMM Professor Ramil de Jesus:

The 2008 De La Salle University Indie Un-film winner of the People’s Choice for Best Film and Best Director awards will vie for the 5 Million Won top prize (approximately 176,000 pesos) as it was selected finalist at the International College Peace Film Festival (ICPFF) held annually at Chuncheon City, Gangwon-do in South Korea.

“Bangar” (pronounced Bang-gar) which casted Bianca Cortez as Anna, a well-off Manila girl who ran away to this La Union province because of neglect from her mother and the absence of his biological father. There she meets Beteng (played by veteran actor Ronnie Lazaro), a simple old man with somewhat a similar fate. Together, they form a special friendship.

Letran Communication Arts student and film director Arianne Ormita will be provided free round trip tickets and accomodation by the organizers, to personally grace the international tilt on November 27 to 30. The ICPFF hopes to ignite appreciation of the art of film and video and break barriers by providing the youth a venue for better understanding of cultural diversity. Sweden, China, Australia, Germany, Japan, Israel, Singapore, and Mongolia are just a few of the countries who submitted entries for the third edition of the said film festival.

  • here's another piece of good news:

    A Filipino college student emerged as the champion for the radio category during the Ibda’a Media Student Awards held Thursday night in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.

    Robert Leeroy Lim bagged the award for the best radio category for his entry that tackled the rampant problems of syndicates engaged in the distribution of pirated digital video disks (DVDs) in the Philippines, particularly in Metro Manila.

    Lim was awarded during the colorful ceremony at the Dubai Media City. He received a trophy as well as an internship at an Arab Radio Network in Dubai Media City.

    “Piracy is also like hijacking in an aircraft. But we’re not going to elaborate on these things because the different kind of piracy is what we are going to investigate,” Lim said.

    The 18-year-old Lim is on his third year as a Bachelor of Arts in Broadcasting student at the Colegio de San Juan de Letran in Manila.

    Before the awards night, there were five Filipinos among the 47 finalists in the 11 various categories. These include journalism, radio, animation, graphic design, analogue at digital photography, print and television advertising, television documentary, film and television feature and mobile film.

    Aside from Lim, fellow Letran student Kathryn Jerry Perez was a finalist in the radio category.

    Their schoolmate Apple Jane Bernardo, meanwhile, was a finalist for the TV documentary. Sarah Bianca Dumaup of the University of the Philippines-Diliman was a finalist for the journalism category while her school mate, Mary Rose Angela Belucas, also shared finalist honors for the animation category.

    Belucas, a student of the Preston University in the UAE, is a child of an overseas Filipino worker.

    Members of the Philippine delegation, including OFWs in Dubai, were elated at what Lim and the other Filipino students achieved in the competition.

    ” ‘Yung award ko po ay para sa lahat ng Filipino, para po sa mga taga Dubai. Salamat po sa Ibda’s and this award is for Letran. Ariba, ariba!” said Lim.

    Philippine Consul to Dubai Vivencio Butch Bandillo, meanwhile, lauded Lim’s success.

    “We’ve done our country proud tonight, and I suppose this is just the beginning. I look forward to even greater triumphs in the years to come,” Bandillo said.

    The Ibda’a Media Student Awards is a competition held every year. It is open to all college students from different parts of the world.

    This year, the Ibda’a Media Student Awards received more than 2,400 entries from various countries.

    Among the other finalists were students from the UAE, Iran, Egypt, South Africa, Pakistan, Malaysia and Singapore. With Dindo Amparo, ABS-CBN Middle East News Bureau chief, Dubai.

    arriba, indeed! :)
