Hi everyone, we are inviting you to the upcoming Brillante Mendoza Film Workshop 3 (BMFW) which is a 7-day intensive training (from March 28 to April 3, 2016,) at Center Stage Productions 947 Busilak St. Barangka Drive, Mandaluyong City.
BRILLANTE MA MENDOZA is a living national treasure of Philippine independent cinema. He is one of the most prominent and important Filipino filmmakers today. He is the first Filipino to compete and won in 3 major international film festivals, showing authentic Filipino stories to the world.
MENDOZA IS REGARDED BY THE WORLD’S FILM CRITICS AS AN ULTRA-NEO REALIST FOR HIS FILMS THAT DEPICT SOCIAL REALITIES
Mendoza’s films are commercially shown in Europe, affording the cinema-loving European audience a glimpse of contemporary Philippine society.
For his achievements and stature in world cinema, various film festivals all over the world have invited Mendoza to sit not only as Jury Member, but as Jury President as well.
Today, Mendoza continues to make socially relevant films and documentaries that depict the lives of the Filipinos and the marginalized sectors of society, cultivating an audience for Alternative Cinema by showing my films in different schools all over the country. One of which is his film, Manoro, which is now part of Philippine Department of Education’s formal module for Grade 8 students.
