Doon Po Sa Amin a.k.a. Pride Campaign will be holding a national short film competition for the youth. The entries will focus on the good things in their place.

“Ano ba ang puwedeng ipagmalaki ng iyong lugar?” That’s the question that should be answered by the entries as explained by Director General Leo Martinez of the Film Academy.

The competition will produce 100 winning short films, straight or semi-documentary videos. “Kahit hindi broadcast quality,” emphasizes DG Martinez, “yung content ang mahalaga sa mga isa-submit nila.”

The winning entries will be re-produced by the Film Academy but in a longer version. That’s where the movie industry workers will come in so as to provide quality since the documentaries will be shown on local television.

In this regard, the Film Academy had invited film directors and other film workers for a primer on the Pride Campaign. Due to be organized are production teams that will be going to the provinces for location shoots.
