BA-Communication seniors reap awards in an inaugural film festival

Fimilea Films, a production team formed by BA-Communication seniors, won four awards in the inaugural Puregold CinePanalo Film Festival held from March 15-17, 2024.

The team’s entry entitled “Kung Nag-aatubili” emerged at the third place of Movie and Television Review and Classification Board’s (MTRCB) “Responsableng Paglikha ng Pelikula”. It was directed by Dizelle Masilungan, who was hailed as the “Best Director.”

Meanwhile, Aishkylos Akiyama earned the “Best Supporting Actor Award,” and Anton Acosta received the “Best in Cinematography Award.”

The film, borne out of a course requirement, was also nominated for “best production design,” “best sound,” “best poster,” “best musical scoring,” and “best picture.”

The awards garnered by Thomasian students in the said festival attest to how the course offerings and classroom instruction guide our students in producing award-winning projects, both in curricular and non-curricular activities.
