All selected PSAs will be shown and disseminated widely online, through social media and in a webblog, after the festival proper. They will also be screened at the INDIEpendensya Film Festival that will begin on September 17 and end on September 19, 2012 — just after the anniversary of the Philippine Senate’s rejection of the US bases on September 16, 1991 and two days before the commemoration of the 40th year anniversary of the declaration of Martial Law in the Philippines.
During the Film Festival, renowned nationalist and anti-imperialist films will be shown for free. The Awards Night for the student competitive category will also be held on the Film Festival’s final night.
The PSAs will also be screened in communities, workplaces, and schools throughout the year.
Here is the complete schedule of the screenings, as well as forums and the awarding for student competition:
