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.
“First Steps to Recovery,” a film by 18-year-old Paulo Reyes, a scholar at Singapore’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 “Let Me Show You How My Faith Inspires Me.”
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.
