The De La Salle University Green Media Group’s Trifecta Film Festival will return in February with films that are sure to make a wave of forums upon screening.
Under the supervision of DLSU Culture and Arts Office, the TFF is established to promote the Philippine film industry through audience development. This year's run is especially relevant to the current social climate as it'll touch topics aiming for social awareness of our culture and history.
Three films will be screened on February 1, 8, and 15, respectively, at the DLSU campus. Check out the trailers below:
Ang Pangarap Kong Holdap

Using songs and imagination, a mother tries to raise her child as normally as possible in a makeshift prison camp for both rebels and criminals during the Marcos dictatorship.
Aside from the above-mentioned, three short films from up-and-coming student filmmakers will also be featured. With many indie filmmakers getting recognized and acclaimed local and overseas, fresh names in the industry are something to look forward.
