1st Sinukwan Kapampangan Film Festival - Dec 4-5

JC Filed Under:
With the holding of the first ever Sinukwan Kapampangan Film Festival this December by Foundation for Lingap Kapampangan, the Holy Angel University Center for Kapampangan Studies, and Kamaru Productions, the Kapampangans are the latest ethnolinguistic group in the Philippines to contribute to the diversification of perspectives and cultural experiences through cinema.

With the continued rise of independent films from the Philippine provinces featuring local culture, language, and location, the organizers have deemed it timely to call out on Kapampangans -- who for a long time up to the present have been contributing to the progress of Philippine Cinema -- to begin making films about their homeland and/or their people, in their native language -- in the name of preserving, promoting, and developing the struggling Kapampangan culture.

One of the highlights of the film festival is the Kapampangan Short Film Competition, which was open to amateurs, students, and professionals.

In its first attempt, the Sinukwan Kapampangan Film Festival receives a total of seven (7) short films participating in the competition:

ING MAGDARAME (The Religious Flagellant)
BALIKBALEN (Home-comer)
SISIG (Sisig)

Kapampangan- themed short films, music videos, and documentaries will also be exhibited during the festival:

BALANGINGI (Nosebleed) - short film
ING BANGKERU (The Boatman) - short film
PUPUL (Harvest) - short film
MISTERYO NG HAPIS (Sorrowful Mystery) - short film
KUTEWU (Name List) - documentary
DING MUSA NING MINALIN (The Muses of Minalin) - documentary
ALANG ANGGANG SUGAT (Eternal Wound) - Music Video
ORAS (Time) - Music Video
KAPLAS (It Hurts) - Music Video
MALAUS KA PAMPANGA (Welcome to Pampanga) - Music Video

And finally, the Pampanga premiere of 2008 Most Outstanding Kapampangan Awardee for Culture and the Arts and Cannes Film Festival 2009 Best Director Brillante Mendoza's "Kinatay" will also be screened.

Talks on the Kapampangan luminaries of Philippine Cinema and the development of a Kapampangan film scene will also be held.
