Another Film Documentary workshop

A new center for the study, production and promotion of cinema is here – the Center for New Cinema!
With a view to improve on the historical developments achieved by motion pictures in the country and explore the potentials cinema faces in the age of digital technology, CNC offers workshops, events and production possibilities.
For its inaugural program, the newly-formed Center offers THE DOCUMENTARY WORKSHOP. Held for ten days from 21 April till 2 May, this workshop takes up one of the most difficult forms of filmmaking which is the documentary – a form of cinema that has yet to be brought to full appreciation as a cinematic expression in this country.
Conducted by the country’s prizewinning documentary filmmaker with 15 documentaries to his credit, Nick Deocampo, the workshop has devised a syllabus that takes a serious look at the history, theory and practice of documentary filmmaking. Trained in Paris and New York through French-Government Fellowship and Fulbright Scholarship, Deocampo’s track-record as a documentary filmmaker and film teacher assures a highly enriching workshop experience. Responsible for renewing vigor in the documentary since the Eighties with films depicting life under the Marcos dictatorship (OLIVER, REVOLUTIONS HAPPEN LIKE REFRAINS IN A SONG) to his later films dealing with gay themes (THE SEX WARRIORS AND THE SAMURAI) to modernism in painting (EDADES), Deocampo’s films offer classic examples of the genre. For his life-work in the documentary, he has been invited as international film jury in prestigious festivals in Prague, Yamagata, Berlin, New York, Brussels, New Delhi, Singapore, Rotterdam, Brisbane, and many other festivals.
If you have a burning idea that seeks fulfillment, explore the world of the documentary and find out how cinema can become a potent instrument in your quest to deal with life’s realities!
