This is a press release from the Sorok Uni Foundation, Inc.
MANILA, Philippines – Sorok Uni Foundation, Inc. is a humanitarian organization that started to work for persons affected with leprosy (PALs), but has extended its services to social and economic inclusion of other forgotten neighbors – the homeless urban and rural poor, and the displaced families due to calamities.
In line with its mission, the Sorok Short Film Festival (SSFF) was launched in 2014 to use films in raising social awareness and serve as an avenue for Filipinos to exhibit their skills in acting, directing and writing, with its theme, “Kapwang Gawa – the act of reaching out to other people.” This was followed by the second SSFF in 2015 with the theme “Tubig Ng Buhay.”
This year, the foundation will be launching the third SSFF with the theme “OFW: Lakbay-Puso”, aiming honor the bravery of our modern day heroes, the Overseas Filipino Workers.
We are encouraging everyone to join our festival for a cause. Film Fest Entry Forms and Guidelines are downloadable on our websites at www.sorokuni.org and www.sorokuni.org/ssff3 and on our Facebook pages, fb.com/sorokunifoundation and fb.com/sorokshortfilmfest. – Rappler.com
