Award-winning filmmaker to hold seminar on cinema for education

Multi-awarded filmmaker, film historian, and film literacy advocate Nicholas “Nick” Deocampo will conduct a seminar workshop on “Cinema for Education: Communication, History, and Ecology” from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on March 14, 2024 at the UP Cebu Lawak Sinehan.

The event aims to explore the potential intersection of film as a tool for greater communication and for imparting knowledge in areas such as the environment, language of the present generation, and sense of nationhood. It will further delve into film’s materiality and history within the Philippine context.

It is organized by the UP Cebu Lawak Sinehan in partnership with the Cebu College of Communication, Art, and Design (CCAD) and Communication Program as well as the UNESCO Memory of the World.

Deocampo is currently an Associate Professor at the UP Film Institute of the College of Mass Communication in UP Diliman. One of his latest accolades was the Lifetime Achievement Award given to him by the Film Development Council of the Philippines in 2023 for a life dedicated to scholarship in Philippine cinema.

This seminar seeks to empower educators in a language that is popular to students and that is the cinema.

Day 1 of the seminar-workshop is exclusive to UP Cebu Faculty members while the second day is open to film educators in Cebu.
