Founded in 1974, MOWELFUND is a non-stock, non-profit foundation focused on social welfare, education, and industry development, with a dedicated mission to support the diligent professionals within the Philippine movie landscape.

Boots Anson Roa-Rodrigo, Chairman of MOWELFUND, shares her gratitude. “Thank you, Puregold, for CinePanalo. [Through this initiative], Puregold offers assistance to filmmakers [in featuring] films that delve into wholesome family themes that define everyday Filipino slice of life.”

With Puregold CinePanalo and MOWELFUND’s partnership, the organization will promote the upcoming festival among professional, amateur, and student filmmakers.

The multi-awarded movie and television personality says this is a “win-win” for both MOWELFUND and Puregold. “Panalo ang Puregold for instilling family values through the potent medium of film. Panalo ang MOWELFUND Film Institute for offering logistics to young and enterprising filmmakers. Panalo ang aspiring film students and enthusiasts [because] CinePanalo helps them bring to life their dream projects through the magic of film.”

Puregold CinePanalo Film Festival recently unveiled its list of grant recipients–six directors for the full-length films and 25 student filmmakers for the short films–carefully selected from over 200 pitches nationwide. Slated for a grand debut at the Gateway Cineplex 18, Araneta City, from March 15 to 17, the festival’s selections embody the theme “Mga Kwentong Panalo ng Buhay,” weaving stories of kinship, perseverance, and the Filipino spirit.

MOWELFUND will also have a representative in Puregold CinePanalo’s panel of judges, present special citations on the awards night, and award the top 10 student filmmakers a post-film festival workshop.

In a gesture of gratitude, MOWELFUND acknowledges Puregold’s support for their 50th-anniversary medical and dental mission, where grocery gift bags will be bestowed upon the deserving members of the film community.

As the Puregold CinePanalo Film Festival approaches its zenith, Puregold senior marketing manager Ivy Hayagan-Piedad articulates, “With heartfelt appreciation, we recognize MOWELFUND and all our partners for their integral role in not just showcasing these inspiring Filipino narratives but also in fortifying our collective contribution to the flourishing Philippine movie industry.”
