Back in the 70’s CFA produced Batingaw (The Bells of San Jose), a full-length movie on family, community and responsible parenthood. It won two awards in the 1974 Asian Film Festival and one FAMAS award for Best Supporting Actor (for Van de Leon). In 1984, CFA again came out with Ishmael Bernal’s Sugat Sa Ugat, with land reform as the central theme. Sugat was chosen as an entry to that year’s Berlin Film Festival. It was distributed internationally by a German film company.
This year, CFA relives its tradition of using film to talk about the country’s most pressing issues by producing an independent film: Maskara. Writer Sal dela Tierra explores integrity and corruption through romance, suspense and action. Maskara features Ina Feleo, Ping Medina, Lance Raymundo and Lester Llasang. The film is co-written and directed by Genesis Nolasco. Principal photography is underway and film is expected to be premiered in February 2015 during the anniversary of the People Power Revolution.
The Communication Foundation for Asia continues its efforts in supporting its valued clients through the use of training. Last November 15, 2014, the CFA Sales Head, Sean Herbert Siy, conducted PowerPoint training to 17 teachers from Nueva Ecija. The teachers came from three different schools, Vincentian Catholic School in Zaragoza, San Agustin Diocesan Academy in Jaen and St. Paul of San Antonio. The teachers rated the CFA speaker and facilitators highly.
In this month’s issue of the Gospel Komiks and Gospel K Magazine’s Rakrakang Papuri we challenged our readers to make their own cover of the song “How Great is Our God” by Chris Tomlin.
Two grade 9 students namely Danna Jean dela Cruz Udan and Divine Joy Cordon Pili from Saint Vincent School, Maddela, Quirino accepted and uploaded their video on YouTube. You can watch their performance through the embedded YouTube video above.
We at CFA thanks Danna Jean and Divine Joy for their excellent rendition of the song.
