Filipino film is finalist in global competition
A short film by a Singapore-based Filipino student is one of 14 finalists in an international competition on expressing the meaning of faith through a three-minute screenplay.
â€œFirst Steps to Recovery,â€ a film by 18-year-old Paulo Reyes, a scholar at Singaporeâ€™s LASALLE College of the Arts, was short-listed for Faith Shorts, a globalÂ filmÂ competitionÂ by the Tony Blair Faith Foundation (TBFF).Â
The contest challenged budding filmmakers 14-18 years old to express on film their thoughts on the theme â€œLet Me Show You How My Faith Inspires Me.â€
An international panel of judges, including former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Hollywood actors Hugh Jackman and Jet Li, will pick the three best shortÂ films.
