Storytelling for Film
This workshop is an initiation into the craft of telling stories through film. It
shall examine the fundamental conventions in film plotting, narrative devices, and
character development. This will also encompass a study of the characteristics of
established genres, and classical and non-classical structures of storytelling.

of Philippine cinema, including Anak (Child), Tanging Yaman (The Only Treasure),
and Milan. He co-wrote and produced the internationally celebrated Ang Pagdadalaga
ni Maximo Oliveros (The Blossoming of Maximo Oliveros), which has screened in over
fifty film festivals worldwide and won major awards in Sundance, Berlin, Rotterdam,
