FAPOURRI – AWARDS SELECTION by Kiko Arroyo  |  Posted in Articles  |  on Sat, Feb 5, 2005

Good news para sa mga nag-aabang sa Film Academy Award winners. The public is invited to select their own winners. In other words, gusto ng FAP na matikman ng madlang public ang experience ng selection process. (Click THE AWARDS menu on the upper part of this page to see the selection process).

Ready na tayo sa first step, yan ang CITING. May nakalatag na 20 movies that were shown during the year 2004. Pipili kayo sa 20 movies na yan kung alin ang tingin ninyong dapat manalo ng award. But since you are simulating the CITER function, you can choose up to 10 films. So, we hope na malinaw ang CITING Process. Lahat ng mga movies na maraming score ay papasok sa NOMINATION. Tapos niyan ay ang VOTING naman. But for the meantime, pumili na kayo ng best movies ninyo, puwedeng 1 o 2 pero maximum ng 10 movies lang.

To join the CITING process, click HOME (on top of this page) and then click BEST MOVIES OF 2004. Nasa annoucement area yan, bandang ibaba, rightmost.

Marami ang nagtatanong tungkol sa 1st FAP Scripwriting and Storyline Contest. Advice lang po, always check the announcement area that you will find on the right side of this page. Click nyo yung SCRIPT CONTEST dahil dun ilalagay ang mga winners. At kung papayag ang contest committee baka ma-publish din ang mga semi-finalists o finalists. Para sa dagdag kaalaman ng mga nagsisali, magkakaroon daw ng 10 finalists sa Script at 20 finalists sa Storyline. Since 3 lang ang mananalo sa Script, yung 7 na matitirang finalists ay may certificate din. Sa Storyline naman, 5 ang mananalo at yung maiiwang 15 finalists ay meron ding certificate. Lahat ng finalists for both categories ay invited sa awards night.

The Screenwriters Guild of the Philippines (SGP) recently held their election at the FAP office electing 11 Directors for the SGP Board. Right after the directors were proclaimed, the new SGP board elected the officers among themselves. Here’s the list of officers and directors:

Chairman – SERGE CUSTODIO, JR.
President – PABLO GOMEZ
Vice president – PABLO LIBIRAN
Secretary – BUTCH MACARO
Treasurer – WILLIAM PASCUAL
Auditor – ENRICO VILLA
PRO – AURELIO UBALDO
Director – HERNAN ROBLES
Director – MANNY RODRIGUEZ
Director – ISABEL SEBULLEN
Director – MARIZALY QUITANIA

FAP Director General Leo Martinez administering the oath-taking of the new SGP Board held at the FAP office on Jan. 29.

There was a sudden change of rules. Supposed to be elected are 9 directors but there was a quadruple tie for the last 3 slots so there appeared to have 10 winners. Since the tie couldn’t be broken, Election Committee Chair Leonardo Belen decided to declare all the 10 as winning directors. With the consent of the general assembly, Chair Belen further invoked his wisdom by adding an extra slot thus declaring a total of 11 directors for the new SGP Board. That is to attain the desired odd number which is customary.

To the new SGP Board of directors and officers, congratulations!
