Silliman University (SU) Filipino department launched SINE­LIKSIK, a first documentary film fest, in celebration of Buwan ng Wika. Nineteen out of 133 entries were pre­sented during the film fest.

One entry is chosen from nineteen sections, the following en­tries are BULONG; MANOS; TAPON; PANGARAP; HALALBAN; PILI; COSA YA PASA CON TIGO; ILAD; PAMINAW; DISCONECTADO; SOR­DO; SUSUKO KA NA BA?; LIBUD; OKAY RAKO; LAROY; PAGMULAT; TINTA; LANGIT LUPA; SABTA KO.

SINELIKSIK was organized by the Filipino department headed by Asst. Prof. Ronald Kinilitan and Sa­mahang Maharlika, a group of Filipi­no major students. Entries are limited only to college students taking up GE 13: Sinesosyedad.

The film festival is a cele­bration of collaborating ideas and creative expression among the youth through short movies. This year’s theme is about finding solutions to social issues with goals that encour­age people to take action for a better future.

The festival aims to “pro­mote the Filipino language and to raise awareness on social issues,” said Kinilitan. Depression, poverty, crime and other social issues are highlight­ed in the film entries. He also added that it encourages students to take action in addressing social problems and he hoped to hold the event annu­ally.

The film showing was orig­inally scheduled on Aug. 12 at the Audio-Visual Theater but was sus­pended due to a holiday on the same date. The department eventually de­cided to present the chosen film en­tries of each section in their respec­tive classes.
