TOFARM Film Festival opens its doors to aspiring filmmakers on its 2nd year

On its 2nd year,TOFARM is continuously creating a name for itself as it opens up opportunities, not just for the aspiring filmmakers but also for its very own subjects and story inspiration, our kababayans in the agricultural sector. But guests were also in for a surprise as Dr. Milagros How, Executive Vice President of Universal Harvester Inc., officially announced the opening of its second leg.  Young, fresh and now - these are the words that best describe the theme for this new run. While the first year was focused on giving the public a glimpse of the farmers’ plight, for year two, TOFARM looks forward to the future. With the theme “Planting Seeds of Change”, attention is channeled to leveling up the agricultural sector by merging the traditional to the modern, in thinking process, strategies, lifestyle and cultures. It now adds a chapter to that story of our farmer’s everyday realities as it tackles goal setting and plotting of a dynamic vision for the whole industry. Farmers and members of similar communities are now left with a challenge to ride with the fast changing lives of Filipinos, fluctuating supply and demand, overnight trends to name a few. The overall landscape is shifting to something more demanding that can only be addressed by creativity and innovation. The agricultural sector should be able to adapt to this.  Similar to last year’s exercise, a total of six (6) film scripts will be selected by the Festival’s screening committee. Each would be earning a 1.5 million pesos grant that they can use to put to life their vision. The Best Film shall receive Php500,000.00, 2nd Best Film at Php400,000.00, 3rd Best Film to bring home Php300,000 and for the Special Jury Award, Php100,000. All these cash prize plus the iconic TOFARM Film Fest Trophy will be brought home by the winners. Other awards await. Everyone is encouraged to send in their entries until November 18, 2016. TOFARM Film Festival is a project pioneered by Universal Harvester Inc., to ignite the agricultural revolution in the country through a more entertaining and creative medium, film. This is a brain child by Dr. Milagros How, Executive Vice President of UHI with award winning film director Maryo J. Delos Reyes.

Event: Lessons from Barcelona A Love Untold and KDKN Solidarity Appreciation Night with KathNiel

Parents make promises they don't usually keep. It was hard to forget watching Star Cinema's latest blockbuster Barcelona A Love Untold after KDKN Solidarity Appreciation and Dinner  last night at ABS-CBN. KathNiel supporters gathered for an Appreciation Night with Mommy Min Bernardo, Mommy Carla Estrada, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla at ABS-CBN Center Road last night celebrating 5 years of the loveteam.
After the dinner and program, we proceeded to Dolphy Theater to view the film. I thought it was the usual predictable scenes showing the love story of Mia(Kathryn) and Ely(Daniel) as it opened how the two met in Barcelona. Mia was the typical teen with struggles similar to my students. Like them she struggles to win the heart of her father who once said words that will haunt her from an incident in school. It was her father's expectations that led her to circumstances bound to failure. Meeting Ely(Daniel) gave her the inspiration to keep going.  
Ely lost his spirit keeping grudge against mom played by Maria Isabel Lopez. That scene with no lines visiting mom to say sorry and handing his animated story cd  "Not Yet" suddenly made my eyes cried buckets of tears. It reminded me of the choice I once made instead of leaving the country years ago. Mia and Ely's pain would not have led them to strive hard working if there were no parents with such high expectations. We breed the same teens today and the movie should remind parents to be careful when children disappoint them. We have to be reminded to keep uttering words of insipration to our children. Teens should also learn how to wait just like Mia and Ely. Kathryn and Daniel have shown their best to inspire others to love in the right time. Finally, the right time for a kiss was in the proper time after the long wait. Barcelona A Love Untold is a perfect movie to teach our kids and parents that love is indeed a decision more than a feeling. Thank you KDKN Solidarity and StarCinema for a night I will never forget. May all parents teach the value of forgiveness and patience to wait. For more information please visit and follow @starcinema on Twitter and Instagram.
