This coming October, we’re bringing you productive weekends with 4 acclaimed storytellers. One of them is the producer of award winning and well loved films such as “Baka Siguro Yata”, “Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa”, and “Señorita”. Such substantial films are well crafted and distributed because of the likes of Darlene Catly Malimas. She has been producing films, teaching, and engaging in creative projects for over a decade. Her love for pure storytelling is highlighted in her influence in the movies she carries, mainstream and independent pictures alike.
She will be gracing The Writers Room with words on what years of experience and artistry has taught her about what makes stories work, what makes characters engaging, alternative storytelling, and finding your own voice.
Fellow acclaimed creatives Mike Alcazaren, Vlademeir Gonzales, and Pepe Diokno, will be guest lecturers as well. Join us and watch your own pieces unfold in our staging of your original collaborations. To join the program, check out the details below this poster:
