It’s a wrap for the 2018 Bacolod Workshops as the students from various courses presented their final outputs for the culmination, The Inasal Awards.
Last May 11, 2018, the nominees for the Awards Night came in their best dress or “Sputing” as the theme suggested.
The Gallaga Theater was filled with artists, filmmakers, writers both from the aspiring and veteran bunch.
The students of Mr. Rene Hinojales’ Movement Class opened the night with a production number and the presentation of the Inasal Awards trophy.
The event was hosted by Mr. John Arceo who was also one of the instructors for Advanced Acting.
The Director for the Institute of the Moving Image, Mr. Manny Montelibano gave a message to welcome students, instructors, family, and friends to a night of celebrating the arts.
The films were critiqued by an esteemed panel of judges: Mr. Adrian Torres, Mr. Milton Dionzon, Mr. RJ Lacson, instructor for Photography, Mr. Paolo Lindaya, and Mr. Jack Triño, the Chairman of the Board of Judges and co-instructor for Advanced Acting.

Mr. Carlos Durana’s fashion show showcased models that were dolled up by the students of Bacolod Workshops Make-up Class followed by the awarding of the “Artist of the Year” which went to Joan Bernal.
