To provide a platform for expressing the youth’s perception on social issues, the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) will once again hold the Sine Kabataan, a short film competition that showcases the youth’s raw talents in telling stories through films about socially relevant issues that affect the youth.
Now on its third edition, the Sine Kabataan Short Film Competition will be choosing eight (8) entries as Finalists, which will each receive Ten Thousand Pesos (P10,000).
The competition is open to all filmmakers of ages 15 to 30 years old. Short films must depict the youth’s perception of health, security and peacebuilding, education, and family values. Deadline for submission of entries is on June 21, 2019.
Finalists will be picked based on their content and choice of subject, story and screenplay, including the high technical standards for cinematography, production design, sound, editing, and other specialized aspects in filmmaking.
