RCAM SOCOM holds Faith Lens 2

The Commission on Social Communications of the Archdiocese of Manila will hold a film festival on World Communications Day.

Faith Lens 2 is a follow-up of last year’s "Faith Lens" organized by the Social Communications Ministry of the Archdiocese of Manila. The festival aims to utilize the technical skills and develop the creativity of the social communications ministers using a professional or cellular phone camera. It also promotes Catholic faith and values in one and a half minutes.

San Roque de Manila Parish is Faith Lens 2018 Best Video.

The festival is open to all the members of the Social Communications Ministry of parishes in the Archdiocese of Manila and other dioceses.

Faith Lens 2 is a one and a half minutes video making contest that dwells on the theme for the Year of the Youth, "Filipino Youth in Mission: Beloved, Gifted, Empowered."

The participating parishes are allowed to make use of any kind of production equipment, be it mobile phone, DSLR, or any type of video camera and any kind of editing software to produce entries. Predominant use of visuals and/or image and minimal dialogue are highly encouraged. 

All participants are also requested to submit a poster promoting the video entry.

All entries will be judged based on the following criteria: Technical Aspect (25%), Relevance to the theme (25%), Concept (25%), and Doctrinal Soundness / Faith impact (25%), for a total of 100%.

There will be three proclaimed winners: Best Video, First Runner-Up, and Second Runner-Up for Best Video.  Special Awards will also be given to the following: Best in Technical Concept, Best Relevance to the Theme, Best in Concept, Best in Doctrinal Soundness, and Best Poster Design.

For the Best Poster Design award, promotional posters of video entries will be uploaded on May 23, 2019 on the Facebook Page of the Archdiocese of Manila - Office of Communications.  Tallying of valid reactions garnered only on the posts found on the said Facebook Page will end on May 28, 2019, at 3:00 p.m.

The announcement of winners will be on June 1, 2019, in line with the celebration of World Communications Day, held annually on the Sunday before Pentecost, falling this year on June 2, 2019. The winning film entries will also be shown at the awarding ceremony to be held at the Sr. Caridad Barrion Hall, St. Scholastica’s College in Malate, Manila, from 1 to 5 in the afternoon.

In his message for the World Communications Day, His Holiness Pope Francis urged the faithful to become active in proclaiming the Word of God through the importance of communication by connecting, interacting, and encountering one another.

“Ever since the internet first became available, the Church has always sought to promote its use in the service of the encounter between persons, and of solidarity among all. With this Message I would like to invite you once again to reflect on the foundation and importance of our being-in-relation and to rediscover, in the vast array of challenges of the current communications context, the desire of the human person who does not want to be left isolated and alone,” Pope Francis said.
