As we all spend our time locked up inside our homes, more and more artists are stepping up online to give the public something that could ease their mind a little amid the ongoing pandemic.
After a great number of Filipino singers and musicians announced that they'll be making online performances in the following days, now we're getting a free writing workshop from the award-winning screenwriter, journalist, novelist, and playwright Ricky Lee.
Cinema Centenario announced on Facebook the upcoming workshop which will be held on April 8, 15, and 22. Applicants must be a Filipino citizen and atleast 18 years of age, and must send their letter of intent and writer's bio to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline of submission is on March 27 at 11:59PM, and only fifty participants will be chosen.
This workshop is made possible with the Directors Guild of the Philippines and the Lupon ng Pilipinong Sinematograpo, in partnership with the Lockdown Cinema Club. The free workshop is a part of their campaign to raise funds for displaced film workers affected by the pandemic. Anyone can donate through the following accounts:
