New Cinephilias Online is co-organized by the Seville Festival and in collaboration with the Embassy of Spain in the Philippines. It aims to “give visibility to the new aspect of the most independent and creative film production of the Spanish cinema and also recognize the programming and didactic work behind the culture of festivals.”
The 23rd online Cine Europa is organized by the Delegation of the European Union in the Philippines together with the members of the European Union.
The future of Spanish in the Philippines looks grim. Although many of us expressed our intention to revive it, our collective effort is not enough.
There are currently 13 million Spanish-era documents sitting on the dusty shelves of the National Archives of the Philippines. The death of Spanish in the country robs us of the opportunity to piece together our history.
Hence, our mission has never been more important: to bring you news and features in both Spanish and English and to promote the use of Spanish in the Philippines.
Your support will make a difference in making sense of our Filipino identity, especially in the era of fake news and cyber propaganda. Please consider contributing today to help us continue our work.
Thank you so much.
