Every time I hear the name Brillante Mendoza, I can't help but feel proud of being a Filipino.
Here's a short write-up about this great Pinoy movie director just in case you've been living under a rock: Mendoza has directed nine films since 2005 and two of those brought back the Philippines in the world map in terms of filmmaking . He won the award for Best Director for his film Kinatay at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival. His latest film "Lola" won best film award at the 6th Dubai International Film Festival.
What I like more about Mendoza is he is happy to share his world-class talent to fellow film enthusiast for FREE via ABS-CBN Foundation, Inc.'s Film Mentoring Workshop for Kapit Bisig Para Sa Ilog Pasig along with ABS-CBN Foundation resident director Caloy Santos Jr. Both of them will be on hand to guide the participants on conceptdevelopment, scriptwriting, actual shooting and post-production.
It is primarily targeted for students as part of the school-based volunteer program for Kapit Bisig Para Sa Ilog Pasig but the group decided to open this learning session to non-students who are willing to attend the five-Saturday workshop. At the end of the activity, participants are expected to turn out a documentary, short or a one-minute plug about the rehabilitation project.
