THE THOMASIAN Film Circle (TFC), a college-based organization of film enthusiasts, is now recognized as a University-wide organization by the Office for Student Affairs.

The recognition was granted during the 31st Student Organization’s Coordinating Council Leadership Training Seminar last May 24-26 at Villa Lorenza Resort in Pililla, Rizal. Formal recognition rites are scheduled by July or September.

Formerly known as the Artlets Movie Circle, the group was formed in February 2004 by former Journalism student, Carlo Masajo. The organization aims to promote Thomasian enthusiasm and interest in the art of filmmaking and film critiquing.

“We saw the need for the organization to expand as we did not want to limit our audience only to Artlets,” Masajo said. “We cannot promote films only to Artlets when students from other colleges share the same interest and enthusiasm for the craft.”

TFC president Maria Erika Callanta, a senior Tourism student, said the group plans to produce Thomasian-made films and hold workshops and seminars on film this school year. A. T. Elumba
