The Active Vista Film Festival is organized by DAKILA – Philippine Collective for Modern Heroism.
The Active Vista Film Festival is an avenue to promote a vision of society that respects, upholds and values the dignity, rights and freedom of its people.
The Active Vista Film Festival challenges to define a spectrum in the use of cinema as a powerful tool in shaping the consciousness of a new generation into the importance of knowing and understanding human rights as an integral foundation of responsible citizenship and nation building.
Active Vista encourages critical thinking and dynamism in views as fundamental requirements in addressing methods and directions of social transformation. It allows an opportunity to debate, discuss and shape society as we arrive at a collective understanding of human rights as the backbone of the development of our nation.
While Active Vista recognizes that no film, no song, no painting, no novel or no poem has ever stopped a tank, prevented a bullet, fed a hungry child or overthrown a corrupt government, the power of every art form cannot be rivaled. While art may not change the world, it can change the way we view the world. True revolution begins in the imagination.
The Active Vista Film Festival is not your ordinary film festival. It presents a dynamic vision that empowers its public towards relevant social change.
Active Vista will travel to 17 different cities nationwide:
- Puerto Princesa
- Cagayan de Oro
- General Santos
- Metro Manila
It will open in Metro Manila on July 20 at the Shangri-La Mall and end with the awarding and screening of the Ten Best Short Films on December 10 – International Human Rights Day.
For the whole leg of the festival, every film screening will be followed by discussions where the audience may engage in a free exchange of ideas with artists, filmmakers, educators and social activists.
