    At 6:00 pm, the Vice President went to the Istorya ng Pag-asa (INP) Film Festival in Cinema 7, Trinoma Mall, Quezon City. INP started as a traveling photo gallery featuring different stories of hope by the Filipino people. Through words and portraits, the project aims to inspire, empower, and be a source of hope for all. Since its launch on November 27, 2016, INP continues o grow with stories of hope sourced from local communities, with the support of partners and stakeholders from all over the Philippines. The named Best Film was “Ka Dodoy”—a film about Roberto “Dodoy” Ballon, chairman of the Kapunungan sa mga Gagmay ng Mangingisda sa Concepcion in Kabasalan, Zamboanga Sibugay. He was instrumental in leading his village to saving their fish stock, amid the dangers of overfishing and neglect of marine resources. The short film was directed by Mark Vincent Aposaga and was co-directed by Meg Saranilla.

    In her remarks, the Vice President shared how her office and its partners have extended assistance or worked with some of the subjects from last year’s film fest. Likewise, interventions, as well as partnerships, will be made with the subjects of INPFF 2019. Film subjects also received P10,000 during the gala night from Ayala Foundation.

    She said this was in keeping with the inspiration that have been shown through the films showcased in the film fest, an initiative of her office, in partnership with Ayala Foundation and the FDCP.

    “Now, when we speak of hope, we do not just wait for something to happen. We strive to be defiantly hopeful by springing to action, so that our dreams will become reality,” she said.

    “I see defiant hope in all these narratives… I pray that these films will teach us to be a bit kinder, a bit more empowered and empowering, and a bit more inspired—because our every action and our every work can bring a little bit of hope to those around us,” she added.
