Thriving Filipino film festival Cinema One Originals is ready to shake things further in the film industry this New Year as it adds the Documentary Film category to its roster of competitions.
Cinema One Channel head Ronald Arguelles told The Manila Times that adding the said category for 2016 is Cinema One Originals’ way to encourage more Filipino filmmakers to go to great lengths in exploring other forms of storytelling.
To submit an entry, interested filmmakers need to download and fill out the entry form for the documentary film category or full-length feature film category, which is available via Cinema One Originals’ official Facebook page, where additional information is also available. The 10 finalists who will be shortlisted will receive P2 million to produce their film in time for the festival in October.
Deadline of entries is on January 15.
