Salamindanaw Asian Film Festival is still accepting applications from any ethnolinguistic group member in Mindanao until November 21, 2020, for its virtual Dok Lab, a documentary workshop for Moro and Lumad filmmakers.
The workshop is intended to be a safe platform for aspiring young filmmakers in Mindanao for growth and development in filmmaking. It provides participants adequate guidance and knowledge in transforming their story ideas into documentary films. The docu workshop is free of charge.
Applicants must be 18 to 40 years old and a member of any Moro or Lumad ethnolinguistic groups in Mindanao to qualify for the workshop. They also have to submit a story idea no more than 300 words along with a short bionote.
The Dok Lab will be conducted entirely online. It is set to start on November 28, and all selected applicants must be able to attend all the virtual sessions for the entire period of the workshop.
Created in 2013, the Cotabato and Gensan-based film festival Salamindanaw is hailed as the only international film festival in the Southern Philippines, which aims to celebrate Southeast Asia’s vibrant and diverse culture and serves as a platform of emergent talents in the region.
