Interseksiyon: Panitikan, Pelikula, at Wikang Filipino

| Written by J. Mikhail Solitario


In celebration of the National Literature Month, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts and the U.P. Film Institute will hold a conference entitled Interseksiyon: Panitikan, Pelikula, at Wikang Filipino. The conference, directed by film scholar Patrick F. Campos, surveys the rich intertwinings between Filipino literature and cinema, from its inception a hundred years ago until the present. It will also try to show how these interactions across the disciplines helped popularize and spread Filipino language. Films that testify to these intersections will also be shown at the UPFI Film Center – Cine Adarna.
