Saan nga ba may forever?
This is a favorite question asked by many in a lot of discussions in social media and among friends considering how a lot of us find it difficult or challenging to find that so-called forever in our relationships.
Geothermal leader Energy Development Corporation (EDC) confirms that there is forever in the sustainable use of geothermal energy in its video contest aptly called “Sa Geothermal May Forever.” It puts the spotlight on the only form of renewable energy that can provide clean, uninterrupted power 24 hours a day, rain or shine, all year round.
Five videos from various parts of Negros Island made the cut and are now vying for the categories of best picture, best screenplay, best actor, best actor, and people’s choice award as friends and fans get a chance to vote for their favorites from October 09-19, 2017 through the Positive Energy Negros Facebook page.
Those that made it to the finals are: Geo TV (a documentary-type video on the benefits of geothermal energy); Pero Nag-effort (a geo engineering student rushed to her class only to find out that there wasn’t any because it was raining); Power (a girl finds love that is forever); Thesis Pa More (a college student who is working on her thesis breaks down after her boyfriend broke up with her); and Travel Goals (a guy who was heartbroken goes on a journey to find himself again and meets an adventurous girl who was on her journey to follow her dreams).
This Information, Education, Communication (IEC) campaign encourages Negrenses to take an active role in learning more about geothermal energy and the bright future that it makes possible. The contest not only raises awareness on the importance of renewable energy in fighting climate change, but also serves as a venue for local and up-and-coming filmmakers and artists to showcase their talent and creativity.
The grand prize winner for best picture will receive P20,000.00. The winner for 2nd best picture gets P10,000 while the 3rd best picture will win P5,000. The best screenplay will get P10,000 while the best actor, best actress, and people’s choice award will each get P5,000.
The awards night will be held on October 20, 2017, Friday, at the Claire Isabel McGill, Luce Auditorium, in Silliman University, Dumaguete City, to celebrate the finalists and see who will take home our fabulous awards and cash prizes.
