THE 26th CCP Independent Film & Video Festival (Ika-26 Gawad CCP Para sa Alternatibong Pelikula at Video) takes place on November 19 to 21, 2014 at the CCP Tanghalang Manuel Conde to showcase whole-day screenings of this year’s entries. The Awards Night will be held on 21 November at 7PM.
The Gawad CCP Para Sa Alternatibong Pelikula at Video is considered the longest-running independent film competition of its kind in the ASEAN/Asian region. Since 1987, Gawad Alternatibo annually cites the best efforts of Pinoy filmmakers in four categories – Animation, Experimental, Documentary and Short Feature. Winners each receive a cash prize, as well as a certificate. Aside from the main awards, special citations are given out to the best work from the regions, as well as works on/for/by children. Many of today’s outstanding filmmakers and media practitioners are alumni of Gawad Alternatibo.
Now on its 26th year, Gawad Alternatibo continues to recognize the works of gifted and budding Filipino independent filmmakers and encourages them to develop their craft by providing a venue to exhibit their best efforts in filmmaking.
