DepEd-ARMM's two entries won top prizes in the recently concluded 5th CinePambata Film Festival at the SM Megamall - Best Script for "Bagetaw" (Farewell) and Best Video for "ARMM Hymn" in the Amateur category. This is the first time ARMM participated in this event. 

ARMM's entries were product of a workshop jointly conducted last February 2013 with the National Council for Children’s Television (NCCT) in a school in Maguindanao last year. Participants to this workshop were elementary and secondary students, teachers and parents. the workshop was facilitate by no less than multi-awarded director Franklin Rivera.

The primemover of this activity, Asec Maisara Dandamun-Latiph, opines that the school should also be provided other media of learning.

Director Rivera was ecstatic that his dream came true - coming back to ARMM on his birthday and day of retirement, where he was able to personally conduct the workshop on acting, directing and script writing. Accordingly, “media is a very powerful medium and through this means people can celebrate their culture, express their identity and heal emotional wounds.”

The ARMM Hymn, a music video was produced by Jibreel Lidasan, a teacher from ARMM Regional Science High School with Maximina Abal, Nomer Nacuspag and selected students of ARMM Regional Science High School, Landasan, Parang, Maguindanao.

Bagetaw (Farewell) video is about environment degradation and one's child relationship with the natural world, was produced by Instructional Materials Development Center (IMDC) staff with Abdul Satar Pasandalan, a pupil of West Sarmiento Elementary School as the main actor.

Ms Margie Pendulat, the IMDC manager, said, "we were just happy to represent our region and to be among the top notch in the Philippines. We did not expected to win. We were just there to participate, learn and enjoy the event".

The media workshop program is aimed to be rolled-out next year in every division hopefully to expose more children in ARMM to responsible media usage and teach them technical skills on acting and production.
