UE to host national conference, awards night of film association


The University of the East, through its UE College of Arts and Sciences-Manila’s Department of Filipino, will be hosting two consecutive events this April by the film association of teachers and professors named Pampelikulang Samahan ng mga Dalubguro (PASADO): the group’s sixth national conference on Filipino, literature and film (“Ika-anim na Pambansang Komperensya sa Filipino, Panitikan at Pelikula”) and the 18th Gawad PASADO, a gala awards night for achievements in film whose theme this year is “Ang Wika, Panitikan at Pelikula ng Bayan: Kaakbay at Kabalikat sa Pagharap sa Hamon ng K to 12 at ASEAN Integration.”

PASADO’s sixth national conference-seminar will be held at the Conference Hall in UE Manila on April 15, 2016, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event, whose theme is “PASADO: Nagpapaalab ng Pagmamahal sa Wika at Sining ng Pelikula Tungo sa Mapaghamong mga Isyu sa Edukasyon at Sining” (which roughly translates as “intensifying love for language and the art of film through the challenging issues in education and the arts”) will have Ateneo De Manila University Professor Corazon Lalu-Santos, Ph.D. as keynote speaker. Plenary discussants include ADMU Prof. Jason Jacobo, Ph.D., professional dubber Mark Christopher Aspiras and Far Eastern University Prof. Emmanuel Gonzales, Ph.D., while a total of eleven mostly university-based researchers will present their respective researches on language, literature and/or film.

The conference is open to all teachers and professors of any subject (not just of Filipino or film) from all over the Philippines. The regular registration fee is P2,500 per regular participant, P2,000 for public school teachers and P1,500 for PASADO members.

Also to be hosted by UE will be the 18th Gawad PASADO for the distinguished film of 2015 and the year’s best actors and filmmakers (“para sa mga natatanging pelikula ng 2015 at mahuhusay na artista at manggagawa ng pelikulang Pilipino”). The star-studded affair will be held on April 16, 2016, 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at the UE Theatre.

PASADO is a non-profit organization composed of elementary, high school and college teachers from private and public schools who review films as documents and use them as teaching material. The group likewise recognizes teachers who help and connect film to the present educational setup in the Philippines.

Seminar participants are encouraged to make reservations through Dr. Rosalie G. Yap (0918-6489460) or Dr. Emmanuel Gonzales (0917-3530594).
