DIFFUN, Quirino, November 2 (PIA) --The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) here recently conducted a two-day film-making seminar-workshop in preparation for the first-ever film making contest which was launched recently by the DAR regional office.
The workshop was facilitated by Benjie de Yro of the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) regional office and it was attended by some 72 students and professionals from Quirino State University, Diffun and Cabarroguis campuses; Nueva Vizcaya State University in Bayombong and PLT College in Solano.
The participants were taught on basic film making and the guidelines on production of short documentary films as their basis in producing their own entries for the competition.
Dubbed as DAVVUN 2015, the entries shall feature the milestones of CARPER implementation in the region and other agrarian reform success stories.

Based on the completion rules and mechanics, there is no limit imposed as to the number of participants in a team so long as all names shall have been duly registered.
