Held in partnership with the Film Development Council of the Philippines, the event will be followed by an online film showing from 1-12 September. After paying a registration fee of PHP250, each participant will be provided a voucher code to access the online Zumba session on 1 September, 8 a.m., and to view FDCP-selected Filipino films starting 10 a.m. on 1 September to 12 m.n. of 12 September at the FDCP channel.
The online film showing will feature Ang Turkey Man Ay Pabo Rin directed by Randolph Longjas, and Bata Bata Paano Ka Ginawa and Dekada ’70 both directed by Chito S. Roño. These selected award-winning films showcase the best of modern Philippine cinema.
For a cause
Government workers are encouraged to support the PLBi program as help to the families of fellow state employees who lost their lives in the service of the Filipino. Through the program, the family of fallen servant-heroes are provided with one-time financial assistance, as well as scholarship opportunities in partnership with the Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges.
This fund-raising event also promotes health and wellness, appreciation of Philippine arts and culture, and celebration of the achievements of our Philippine Olympians.
The online Zumba and film showing activities are some of the highlights of the 121st Philippine Civil Service Anniversary celebration in September, which commemorates the establishment of the entire Philippine civil service on 19 September 1900 by virtue of Public Law No. 5.
