VP Leni Robredo thumbs up to Pinoy filmmakers

Vice President Leni Robredo has always been supportive to film industry: from encouraging Filipinos to watch Pinoy films to creating ‘ISTORYA NG PAG-ASA FILM FESTIVAL’ for pro and non-pro filmmakers to showcase and tell their stories.

“Maraming magagaling na filmmakers sa bansa ang hindi pa napapansin,” says VP.

The film festival features Pinoy filmmakers with their stories that inspire, move, educate, and inform. 

“Layunin namin na sa pamamagitan ng Istorya ng Pag-asa, magkabuklod-buklod ang mga Pinoy at makakuha ng inspirasyon sa mga kuwento ng pagbangon, pagsusumikap, pakikibaka ng kanilang kapuwa, sa paniniwala sa kabutihan ng bawat tao at sa katatagan ng mga Pinoy sa anumang pagsubok na kanilang kinakaharap sa buhay,” Robredo shares.

The second edition is supported by Ayala Foundation and Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP). Robredo shows excitement as there are many stories to tell.

Last year, “Ang Biyahe ni Marlon,” “Gawilan,” and “Tago” were some of the memorable films of Istorya ng Pag-asa.

“Maraming magaganda. Saludo ako sa mga filmmaker natin,” Robredo praises.

This year, Istorya ng Pag-asa brings more stories that inspire more Filipinos. All filmmakers must submit their films until March 25.
