COLLEGE of Accountancy students bagged awards in the 6th Literary and Arts Festival of the National Federation of Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants-National Capital Region (NFJPIA-NCR) held on Dec. 5, 6, 12 and 13.

The festival was held online and had the theme “Tanglaw: The Art of Radiating Hope Across the Spectrum.”

Multiple award recipient Angelika Marie Dumling told the Varsitarian that the festival pushed through despite the circumstances to foster creativity and passion among students.

“It [gave] us something to think about other than what we see on the news in television and on the web. It kept us engaged,” she told the Varsitarian

The short film “Zoom. Saturday. 8 PM,” written and directed by Dumling, placed first in the Short Film Making Competition category and won Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay.

The film tackled the story of four childhood friends and their weekly catch-up session via the online platform Zoom every Saturday at 8 p.m.

“The main idea of the film is to depict the importance and strength of friendships beyond the limitations of not being together,” Dumling said.

The cast includes Maru Joi Pasio, Michelle Baldesancho, Trixie Cuevas, and Haila Gervacio. Frances Soliman, Isabel Tiongco and Zyn Angelique Dumagco were the film editors, while the producers were Sophia Morada and Anna Thalia Yago. 

Gervacio won the Best Supporting Actress award.
