Lantawan Socsksargen Film Festival (LSFF), a regional film festival organized by the SOCSKSARGEN Center for Film and Arts (SCFA), is now accepting entries for the second film fest and competition of Region XII.
Interested filmmakers may submit short narrative film entries with a maximum length of fifteen minutes to the two categories identified by SCFA. Sine Socsksargen is open to high school and college students currently enrolled in any learning institution in SOCSKSARGEN (South Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani Province and General Santos City). For this category, participating schools may submit a maximun of three entries. Sine Mindanaw is an open category to any filmmaker from the region.
The deadline of submission is on November 10.
As a regional fest, LSSF aims to showcase films that reflect the region’s “collective endeavor as a progressive region.”
The pilot of Lantawan was held in General Santos in January with a total of 14 entries. Workshops, pre-fest screenings and open-air showing were among the fruitful activities in the first festivals.
As part of its mandate to promote Filipino arts and culture, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) funds LSFF along with various regional film festivals across the nation.
