School caravan UM

As part of its promotions, the 11th Mindanao Film Festival is visiting top universities in Davao to screen films from previous years and to have an open forum with featured filmmakers.

Last Nov 18, the MFF School Caravan made its first stop at the University of Mindanao, Matina Campus. Festival director Rudolph Alama opened the program with an eye-opening keynote presentation on the history of filmmaking in Davao City.

Dubbed as the king of shorts in Davao and one of MFF’s prolific filmmakers, director Gary Bautista talked about his two MFF entries “Halin” (2013) and “Hapdos” (2014). Gary is also part of Davao City’s Shmekm, a group of filmmakers known for their viral spoofs.

Last December 1, it was the University of the Immaculate Conception’s turn to host the caravan. In observance of World Aids Day, the short film One Day Isang Diwa, a story about an HIV carrier, was promoted during the event. The said short film was directed by Nickle John Lim, a UIC Communication Arts alumnus.
