NCCA’s Eksena Cinema Quarantine Films’ Now Streaming Worldwide

ECQ: Eksena Cinema Quarantine (COVID-19 Filmmakers’ Diaries), a project under the National Commission for Culture and the Arts – National Committee on Cinema (NCCA-NCC), in cooperation with University of St. La Salle- Artists’ Hub.


Featuring sixteen filmmakers namely Adjani Arumpac, Hiyas Baldemor Bagabaldo, Arbi Barbarona, Glenn Barit, Carlo Enciso Catu, Zurich Chan, Arden Rod Condez, Kristian Sendon Cordero, Khavn, Keith Deligero, Kyle Fermindoza, Bagane Fiola, Mark L. Garcia, Julienne Ilagan, Pam Miras, and Guillermo Ocampo.


Presented in two parts, Eksena 1 and Eksena 2, the omnibus films gives the viewers a glimpse as well as insights from these filmmakers on how they navigated and managed their lives during the lockdown.


The worldwide virtual launch is on Friday, January 22 at 6PM, followed by the screenings which will run for a week until January 28.




National Committee on Cinema (NCC) chair Rolando Tolentino said, “It is important to continue the filmmaking process especially in this time (COVID-19 pandemic) when it is very challenging to do films and art for that matter.”


“If we do not sustain art and culture, we would not have the testament that the pandemic indeed happened. These films will become testaments that we lived this way (now) – just like Noli Me Tangere – which gave us a glimpse on what happened during the Spanish colonialism because Jose Rizal wrote Noli Me Tangere. That becomes a powerful testament over time even after centuries,” Tolentino added.


The films may be accessed online after registering for a free account at vimeo.com or through the vimeo mobile app. Distributed by Solar Pictures, the films maybe accessed as video on demand for free via the promo code NCCACinema.


Aside from the screenings, four webinars will also be held from January 25-28, 2021 with the filmmakers grouped into the four regions. They will share their filmmaking process in producing their short films and thresh out detailed insights into their personal struggles and successes in doing the film.
