Cineastes XXX: 30 years of filmmaking at any cost

In 1984, members of University of the Philippines’ Cineastes' Studio (UP Cineastes) set out to form the first student film organization based at the UP College of Mass Communication, committed to serve the film community and promote film awareness, appreciation and understanding, and as well as to other forms of artistic expression. This year, UP Cineastes celebrates 30 years of filmmaking at any cost.

  • Cinemalaya X Goes UP – August 30, September 1-5, September 8
  • Cineastes Sportsfest – September 10
  • Grand Film Orgy – September 12

  • Cineastes Exhibit – September 15-19, September 22-26
  • Grand Pakain – September 24
  • Grand Alumni Homecoming – September 26
  • Applicants’ Orientation September – 30

Together with OLX.Ph and Array’s Technology, Inc, the UP Cineastes’ Studio presented these events with pride and confidence in line with the organization’s continued support and elevation of filmmaking and the cinema.
