The Philippine Independent Filmmakers Multi-Purpose Cooperative, or IFC, is conducting a series of workshops this summer, aimed at “developing and encouraging people’s creativity,” announced Rica Arevalo, IFC board member.

The workshops for students, educators and film enthusiasts are set from April 16 to 28 at Fully Booked on Bonifacio High Street, Global City, Taguig.

“IFC is strengthening its educational component. One of its objectives is to provide training and educational programs in filmmaking,” Arevalo told Inquirer Entertainment. “Most members are filmmakers. What better way to learn the craft than from the practitioners, who will share their knowledge, talent and experience?”


Arevalo said scriptwriting will be handled by Doy del Mundo, whose credits include “Maynila… Sa mga Kuko ng Liwanag,” “Mulanay,” “Aliwan Paradise,” “Markova,” “Pepot Artista” and “Paglipad ng Anghel.”


The seminar on film literacy is designed for film enthusiasts and teachers. An IFC team will cover different aspects of filmmaking—production, direction, screenplay, cinematography, production design, sound and editing.

Arevalo, whose filmography includes “ICU Bed #7” and “Ganap na Babae,” will help conduct this seminar, with Michael Dagñalan and Maan Asuncion (“Isnats,” “River of Dreams,” “Layang Bilanggo”), Neil Daza (director of photography for “La Vida Rosa,” “Dekada ’70,” “Ouija”) and Paul Morales (“Concerto”).

Paolo Villaluna (“Ilusyon,” “Selda,” “Walang Hanggang Paalam”) will handle the workshop on directing.

The session on producing and marketing will deal with the whole process of filmmaking—from conceptualization, to producing, to marketing. Screenwriter-producer Raymond Lee (“Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros,” “Kimmy Dora,” “Zombadings”) will share the experience of his group, UFO Pictures and Origin8, in crossing over from indie productions to mainstream cinema, said Arevalo.

Coreen “Monster” Jimenez will share her thoughts on making a documentary and her experiences in creating the award-winning docu, “Kano.” Ramon del Prado
of Tuldok Animation Studio will handle the workshop on 2D animation.
