This is a press release from the PUP BroadCircle.
It’s been a year since the world seemed to have come to a standstill due to the pandemic, leading to a spike in the number of people with mental health issues, regardless of status, age, gender, color, and religion.
PUP BroadCircle believes that this problem deserves more attention now and vows to combat the stigma of mental illness through the PUP Music Video Festival 2020, with the theme “Bago ang Lahat, Ako Muna.” The goal is to help foster emotional equilibrium, especially among the youth.
It would be the first time that the festival will be done online. It would highlight the artistry of Sintang Paaralan’s freshmen broadcasting students while following the government’s health and safety protocols.
On January 13 and 14, the organization conducted a webinar that equipped the participants with knowledge on mental health. The resource persons include “Your Millennial Psychologist” Riyan Portuguez, songwriting and music production with Awit Awards recipient Jungee Marcelo, and music video production with ECS Films director Edrex Clyde Sanchez. The outputs were reviewed by notable music video directors Edrex Clyde Sanchez, Ria Red, Niq Ablao, and Yanyan Gervero.
The festival is slated for broadcasting via PUP BroadCircle Facebook page on March 20.
