NAGA CITY— The Caceres Commission on Communications has formally launched the 2nd Peñafrancia Short Film Festival last March 26 through a press conference.

This year’s film festival brings to light the call to be like Mary, and the Year of the Laity, according Archbishop Rolando J. Tria Tirona, OCD DD.

The theme for this year’s festival is "Choose to be brave, to live and love like Ina." Interested participants must be able to develop a story that centers on a strong and stirring devotion to Our Lady of Peñafrancia, Patroness of Bicolandia. They must be able to feature the Bicolano culture, which inherently showcases a deep sense of religiosity.

The theme encourages participants to heed the call of the Year of the Laity: to be active witnesses of Christ, and to spread the Good News wherever one goes. By choosing to be brave in the Catholic faith, they become missionaries, carrying the light of Christ to others.

Through the Peñafrancia Short Film Festival, the Caceres Commission on Communications urges filmmakers to embark on a spiritual journey, with Christ and His mother, Mary.

Those who are interested may check the Peñafrancia Short Film festival official Facebook fanpage at www.facebook.com/FPSFF for more information.
