Last August 30-31, 2020, UP Cinema Arts Society (UP CAST) held its 30th Anniversary through a virtual show, CASTELLATIONS 30. We broke free from the thrall of reality and explored the two-night live fundraising event filled with films and good music.
Our eyes were indulged with award-winning films produced by UP CAST’s members and alumni featuring: “Kontrolado ni Girly ang Buhay N’ya” directed by Gilb Baldoza, “Akalingwan Nang Rosa” directed by Max Canls, “Bagahe” directed by Tristan Ortega, “Business as Usual” directed by Anton Ayson, “Lobo” directed by Vanz Mendoza, and “Recycle” directed by Abby Fernandez.
We were also mesmerized by the performances of Banna Harbera, Indayo, Paprika!, Shirebound & Busking, Stef & Euge, Supremo Pablo, Sweet Summit, and Water the Odds.
Last but not the least, we were one in standing up for a quality and accessible education, as we continue advocate for #NoStudentLeftBehind and #AccessForAll. It was also an avenue in supporting our local beneficiaries: Load a Dream Foundation, an initiative led by the youth of Brgy. San Antonio I, San Pablo City, Laguna, to help those with little to no resources in coping with online classes; and ALCADEV Inc., an alternative learning system for the indigenous youth of Caraga Region, Mindanao.
