Sine Negrense: Negros Island Film Festival – Bacolod, November 27-29, 2017
The island of Negros is known mostly for its mouth-watering food all throughout the country. However, not everyone knows that aside from their gastronomical background, they also have been active in the film industry, led by Peque Gallaga who directed Oro, Plata, Mata.
In 1991, Peque Gallaga together with other Negrense decided to give back to Negros the talents and experience they have acquired in Manila, and so the Negros Summer Workshops was born. The Negros Summer Workshops offered classes in Film Production, Cinematography, Production Design, Acting, and Production Management.
Fast forward to this year, they’re still continuing film. On November 27-29, 2017, Bacolod City will once again play host to Sine Negrense: Negros Island Film Festival, happening at the La Salle Audio Visual, San Agustin Auditorium, and the CHMSC – Auditorium.
