Entries from Catanduanes landed in the top 3 in the regional level of the Consumer Welfare Month short film competition sponsored by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).

The local short film’s route to the region began on Sept. 16, 2019 during the provincial screening at Villa Toledo Function Hall in Virac where an audience of 49 students and teacher-coaches saw the following winners:

Sustainable Consumption Category: 1st place, “PM is the Key” of Catanduanes National High School (coaches Shinette Oliveros, Julienne Christine Balbin, Jemima Rodriguez and Imaculate Latorrs); and, 2nd place, “Lawin-Lawinan” of Bato Rural Development High School (coach Janice Rojas).

Digital Commerce: 1st place. “Koneksyon” of Bato RDHS (coach Kristine Arcilla); and, 2nd place, Catanduanes NHS (coach Jessielito Bautista).

Vulnerable Groups: 1st place, “Agrangay” of Bato RDHS (coach Shekienah Joy Enriquez); 2nd place, “Lapis” of Catanduanes NHS (coach Jessielito Bautista); and, 3rd place, “Tabang” of Palta NHS (coach Israel Gurrobat).

The first placers in each category qualified to the regional competition last Sept. 20 at Ayala Malls in Legazpi City where CNHS’ “PM is the Key” was adjudged 3rd place in the Sustainable Consumption category; Bato RDHS’ “Koneksyon” garnered 3rd place in the Digital Commerce category; and, Bato RDHS’ “Agrangay” bagged 2nd place in the Vulnerable Groups category.

The 3rd placers received P3,000 cash plus a certificate of recognition while the 2nd placer received P5,000 plus a similar certificate.

Catanduanes’ entries made a very good showing despite the limited time available to produce their short films, the DTI provincial office remarked.

It expressed its appreciation to the provincial level judges – Dr. Adem Nalu Rubio, Roselyn Galang and Demetrio Celestino III – who shared their extensive knowledge and experience in film making, theater arts, and literature during the competition and gave inputs to the participating contingents.

Held in celebration of this year’s Consumer Welfare Month in October with the overall theme "Sustainable Consumption: Understanding the Impact of Consumers’ Choices in a Shared Environment”, DTI is conducting a nationwide short film competition for Senior High School Students. Taking the cue on current issues, the competition encouraged films anchored on three sub-themes:  (1) Sustainable Consumption: Understanding the Impact of Consumer’s Choices in a Shared Environment; (2) Digital Commerce; and (3) Vulnerable groups (i.e. Senior citizens, children, PWDs)

The short film competition aims not only to stimulate awareness on pressing consumer-related issues but also to showcase the skills and talents of Senior High School students in response to consumer issues and concerns. The short films will be shown widely during the Consumer Welfare Month celebration and may be viewed as part of the Consumer’s Assembly on October 25, 2019.
