Film Camp

The Ngilngig Film Camp (NFC) is a response to the growing need for fantastic stories from and about Mindanao through film, and the importance of honing the critical frameworks of the emerging  filmmakers telling these stories. It is a three-day story development workshop for selected filmmakers from different regions in Mindanao that enables them to focus and develop their story ideas for short films. Fellows are guided and mentored by established filmmakers from Mindanao or working in Mindanao to be eloquent with their own voices before they proceed to the productions of their films.

Application for the Ngilngig Film Camp & Film Lab 2019 is now open to aspiring filmmakers born in Mindanao or have been Mindanao residents for at least 5 years at the time of application.
