The University of the Philippines is launching an online festival of short videos on the theme “Pag-aalay sa Panahon ng Pandemya” or everyday heroism and hope in a time of COVID-19, and calling on filmmakers to submit entries before January 30, 2021.
Entries to the “Pag-aalay: Webxhibition and Festival” are eligible for P15,000, P10,000, and P7,000 prizes, and a special Chooks-To-Go People’s Choice Award, all with trophies, to be awarded in a virtual awards night in February 2021.
The videos, which must run from 30 to 90 seconds, may fall under narrative, documentary, animation, experimental, virtual/augmented reality, or music video categories.
They should be upload-able to different social media platforms. Shortlisted videos will be featured on TVUP, the Internet television network of UP, and streamed via TVUP’s Facebook page.
The entries must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, together with an accomplished festival entry form, which can be downloaded here: 2021 Video Festival Entry Form
