Cineaste is Southville International School and Colleges’ (SISC) interest club for students who are film aficionados. Last July 21, 2011, they had their first exposure trip to the Cultural Center of the Philippines to watch a movie in the Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival.
Accompanied by their club moderator, Moises Anthony Cruz, who is also an independent filmmaker, the students had a chance to view an art film different from mainstream cinema. A short lecture and critical reflection were done after the film viewing.
Exposure trips such as this are initiated by SISC to enhance classroom learning and support student achievement in extra curricular activities.
