Sigrid Andrea Bernardo

Sigrid Andrea Bernardo

In a world and industry where women, no matter how big or Little they may be, continue to struggle and fight for equal rights, may mga natatanging Babae na ipinakita ang tapang, husay at senSHEbilities nila lalo na sa larangan ng paggawa ng pelikula. Mula iilan, naging maramihan. Tunay ngang hindi pa ito ang Huling Cha-Cha ni Anita, kung hindi ang simula ng mas mahaba pang sayaw sa mundo at perspektiba ni Eba.

Handog ng Pelikulove ang mga natatanging filmmakeHERs na ito na humubog at patuloy na humuhubog sa industriya ng pelikula.

Bilang panimula, isang pagpupugay sa isa sa mga natatanging filmmakeHERs ngayon na hindi na naghintay pa sa bulong ng iba. Sa halip, ay buong tapang na ipinarinig ang kanyang kaka-EBAng tinig sa Pilipinas at sa buong mundo.

Ikinagagalak naming ipakilala ang aming unang featured filmmakeHER, si Sigrid Andrea P. Bernardo.

Nawa’y maging SHEgrid tayo sa panahong puno ng Bernardo.

Maligayang Buwan ng Kababaihan!
