SPONSOR: The Film Gym scholarship program is made possible through a film grant given by Sen. Francis Pangilinan to the Film Academy of the Philippines (FAP).

BENEFICIARIES: The priority target beneficiaries of the scholarships are students, teachers, out-of-school youth, NGOs and other advocates…who want to use film for Personal and Social Transformation. We are looking at training at least 132 prospective filmmakers in this 1-year program. We hope this will be the beginning of a continuing yearly program towards the realization of our vision for the dynamic use of film for nation-building.
