Themed “Bridging Communities through Christian Values and INA”, this year’s Film Festival brings to light the celebration of the Year of the Parishes - Communion of Communities.
Participants will come from secondary students of private and public schools in the Bicol Region. The festival is also in partnership with the City Government of Naga, the Department of Education – Region V, BACS, CEACAL and the KBP.
All entries, either in Filipino or Bikol, should not be less than 10 minutes and not more than 20 minutes. The script must focus on the theme, which centers on Christian values and a strong devotion to the Lady of Peñafrancia. In addition, entries must be able to feature the local culture, which inherently includes a deep sense of religiosity, among other things.
