So you’re also into watching movies? A cinephile? A movie fan? A usual attendee in local film festivals? Want to Netflix and chill, as well? Me, too!
When I was in college, I co-founded the PLM- Film Society with my friend and co-writer in the university publication. Let’s call him Macky Macarayan, a certified film buff who will soon be pursuing his MA in Film at UP Film Institute this year! Yay!
Back then, we felt the need to create a hub / an avenue to boost film literacy in the University. There was no film-related organization in Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM) that time. I must admit, between the two of us, it was (Kuya) Macky who was more keen in putting up the org. The man is addicted to movies! It’s evident in his blog which you can access here.
Here’s how we defined Film Soc as seen in our page:
The Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila- Film Society is a non-academic organization of this university. The society aims to promote and initiate activities and projects that will cater to development of film literacy and film culture among its members.
Fast forward six years, here we are and still existing! I am excited to welcome more years ahead! If you’re a film buff, hope you can join us, too!
Cheers! Long live cinema!
