FDCP Launches the Online 'Sine Wikain' Short Film Challenge

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) is now calling for submissions for Sine Wikain: Sandaang Pagpapaalala, an online challenge celebrating the ‘Buwan ng Wika’ and the closing of ‘Sine Sandaan: The One Hundred Years of Philippine Cinema. Spotlighting the interpretation of ‘salawikain’ into vertical short films, #SineWikainChallenge is a social media challenge meant to remind Filipinos about childhood teachings while also providing positive content and values that could uplift us amid the pandemic.

The online short film challenge is an endeavor and vision shared by renowned actor Leo Martinez with FDCP. Under the challenge, participants may select any of the 100 salawikain in the list provided by FDCP and creatively interpret it into a short film shot on their mobile phones in portrait mode. Each short film must contain a maximum running time of two minutes.The various salawikain tackle a broad number of topics about life, love, family, friendship, and character development. It was partly inspired by the Good Moral and Right Conduct (GMRC) Law, which institutionalized GMRC and Character Development as part of the K-12 curriculum.

There will be two categories available depending on the participant’s age, an adult category and a youth category for those aged 17 and below. Any individual may place their entry online by simply posting on social media, either through Facebook, Twitter, and/or TikTok. Participants may likewise form groups with their friends with a maximum of three people under each submission. Each individual or group is limited to one entry for the challenge.

Participants of the #SineWikainChallenge will have the chance to win cash prizes, with a maximum of PHP 15,000 for the 1st place winners in both adult and youth categories, PHP 10,000 for the 2nd place winners, and PHP 5,000 for third place. In addition, FDCP will select 20 participants in each category to receive PHP 2,000. The winners will be announced on September 23, through FDCP’s Facebook and Twitter pages as well as on the Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino and Sine Sandaan pages.

With the easy-to-join mechanics, FDCP urges the Filipino youth and our many users of social media to find creative ways of using their phones and social media platforms, and discover them as a source of filmmaking and promoter of positive values.
