Ang la-CAST!

UP CAST (Cinema Arts Society) held its second annual Illuminations event last Friday. It was coined “Ang laCAST! Ang tINDIE!” Preparations started early that afternoon. Members started pumping and blowing balloons, setting up the photo exhibit and arranging the chairs and tables.

There was to be an alumni homecoming party right after the film showing so everyone was dressed up in semi-formal attires.

Illuminations is an annual event staged by UP CAST to showcase various film productions made by its talented members.

Last year, in cooperation with UP Ugnayan ng Manunulat, we showcased various experimental short films with poetry readings and acoustic music. It was held at Diliman Republic with an audience of just around fifty. This year, we held it at Cine Adarna (UP Film Center). Although we didn’t draw as much crowd as we hoped, the event went as planned and was successful.

The alumni homecoming party was successful too. Things went as planned. Alumni attendance was okay. We wish this means better alumni-resident members relations. The food was okay too, for the amount of money we paid the catering service.
