World-class leather accessories brand McJim Classic Leather brings back Get Reel Film Festival 2020, a bigger and more challenging edition of last year’s successful Get Reel Mobile Shorts Film Festival.

This time around, the competition is accepting entries that touch on the theme, “Filipino Values Beyond Generations.”

The 2020 Get Reel Film Festival is upping the ante with two brand-new categories: the Main Competition for professional and amateur filmmakers using digital cameras and the Brand Digital Ads category for innovative ads for McJim Classic Leather. These will complement the Mobile Shorts Competition for users of mobile phone cameras.

Professional and amateur filmmakers now have more opportunities to showcase their talents and share stories displaying the timeless values of the modern Filipino gentleman.

The winning entries from the 2020 Get Reel Film Festival will join the prestigious group of notable films from last year’s Mobile Shorts Competition: 

Dylan Ray Talon’s Walang Hanggang Ligaya Sa Una Mong Ngiti; James Edward Golla’s May Love Life Na Si Pepito Jr.; and John Carlo Balasbas Tarobal’s Champion, which all garnered critical acclaim for their inspiring stories and excellent filmmaking.

Cash prizes and trophies await the festival winners.

Chris Cahilig, award-winning filmmaker and festival director, says, “Through the powerful medium of filmmaking, a brand breaks into the new media to advance its social cause and deliver good value and entertainment to its audience.”

Festival director and award-winning filmmaker, Chris Cahilig

The festival is open to all Filipino filmmakers from around the world. All entries to the Main Competition and the Mobile Shorts Competition must have a minimum length of two (2) minutes and a maximum length of ten (10) minutes, including opening and closing credits.

Winners will be chosen for both the Main Competition and the Mobile Shorts Competition.

All films submitted should be recorded and edited in not less than 720 HD format, but using 1080 HD is highly recommended. Only digital submissions emailed to mcjimtv@gmail.com will be accepted.

All submitted films must use any McJim Classic Leather accessories (bags, belts, wallets) as an organic part of the narratives.

No film entry shall be an imitation or plagiarized version of any copyrighted work. Get Reel Film Festival and its organizers will not be responsible for any copyright infringement committed by the participants.

Mass Wedding for 25 Dumagat couples was officiated by SJDM Mayor Art Robes at The Rising HeARt marker


SJDM Mayor Art Robes with some of the Dumagat members  during the "Kasalang Bayan" held at "The Rising heARt." 


February 11, 2020 iwas a very memorable date for the San Josenos, most especially for the Dumagat tribe. Aside from celebrating the Feast Day of  Our Lady of Lourdes, San Juan Del Monte Mayor Arthur Robes had also decided to come up with another worthwhile plan of officiating a mass wedding for 25 Dumagat tribe couples at  "The Rising heARt" marker. This is also in line with the upcoming celebration of Valentine's Day. 

The said marker was officially inaugurated just the night before the mass wedding {February 10,2020)  to increase the public's awareness of  SJDM's bid to be recognized as part of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN) . This marker also serves as a  constant reminder  to each and everyone of us that,  no matter how chaotic our world is, we  should all be governed by love, peace and compassion  towards one another.


SJDM Mayor Arthur Robes gives his speech during the mass wedding.  


The Dumagats one of the major groups of indigenous peoples in the Southern Tagalog region. Though they are know to be nomadic, a number of them are now living in more than 47 government-designated settlement areas. SJDM hosts one of these settlements. "This is just one of the many ways for us to embrace the indigenous peoples who are part of our community," said Mayor Robes. "They can continue with their traditions but, at the same time, they can be part of the bigger community. They're one of us. Officiating a wedding ceremony for them is a great honor. I thank them for letting me become a part of their special day."




The marker has an accompanying heart-shaped structure  that serves as a love-lock repository. 



We can also feel the cold breeze and amazing scenic spot right from the marker, since this is located at the top of mountain in Barangka Road, Brgy. Paradise III in San Jose Del Monte City, Bulacan. 


Dumagat tribe head Benjamin San Jose 




The 25 Dumagat couples who were registered for the mass wedding 



                                         
Dumagat tribe head Benjamin San Jose went emotional  when he expressed his overwhelming gratitude for SJDM's "Power Couple" Mayor Arthur Robes and Congresswoman  Rida Robes  for coming up with this mass wedding for his beloved Dumagat tribe.  Please do watch our interview with him. 










The couples, who wore their tribal ensembles, exchanged their "I dos" and Mayor Robes made their unions official.



Indeed, love is the air!!!  To all the newly-weds, Best Wishes and Congratulations to all of you! You all deserve this! Hope that the pure intention and advocacy of the  "power couple"  that we should all release and share love, peace and compassion with each other no matter how crazy, inconsistent and cruel our world could get. 

Let us all be inspired and spread the good news amazing peeps!!!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

THE ONLY WAY IS THROUGH

You're More Than Your Successes. You're More Than Your Failures. You Are The Work.

Introducing Under Armour's 2020 Global Brand Platform—The Only Way Is Through.


One last drive. Three seconds left on the clock. The point two of 26.2. 5:00 a.m. after 5 straight days. Bumps, bruises, and breaks—mental and physical. In an athlete’s life, barriers are everywhere. From the daily grind, to the crippling pressure, to the trials and tribulations of life outside the gym, the pursuit of getting better is a constant challenge and test. While progress and self-improvement looks different for each athlete, there’s still only one possible mindset—The Only Way Is Through. It’s an understanding that to reach whatever goals lie ahead, you must stay the path to come out faster, stronger—better—on the other side. 
The Only Way Is Through is representative of the next frontier for Under Armour—the opportunity of 2020 and beyond. The campaign brings to life the real value of momentum; how momentum through work helps athletes push themselves to be better than what they thought possible, and how Under Armour technology—with groundbreaking product innovations like UA HOVR™, UA RUSH™, and UA Recover—is supporting those athletes constantly in search of incremental change in an effort to get better.



The campaign debuted last January 15, 2020 in Baltimore, among a global gathering of Under Armour athletes, trainers, teammates, media, and more, as part of a two-day immersion into the next year of Under Armour innovation. The platform launch includes a 90-second anthem, and will be supported with additional content throughout the year, including spotlight pieces telling the stories of all types of athletes and exploring their “through” moments. As Under Armour and its athletes bring to life this vision for 2020 and beyond, The Only Way Is Through becomes a rallying cry for the brand in an effort to motivate and inspire athletes around the world to put in the work and get better.
The anthem content features a wide array of athletes and teams, including: 
  • Stephen Curry, three-time Champion and two-time MVP
  • DK Metcalf, star receiver for Seattle
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold, homegrown superstar and UCL winner for Liverpool
  • Kelley O’Hara, Olympic Gold Medalist and two-time World Cup winner
  • Georgia Ellenwood, eight-time All American and 2018 D1 Heptathalon Champion
  • Zhu Ting, Olympic Gold Medalist and two-time Volleyball World Cup Champion
  • Tom Brady, six-time Champion, three-time MVP
  • Michael Phelps, the most decorated swimmer of all time
  • Kyle Dietz, former MMA fighter turned long distance trail runner after brain tumor diagnosis
  • Adinda Sukardi, Under Armour Indonesia Ambassador
  • St. John’s College High School Girls Basketball 
  • Mission Viejo High School Football 
  • City College High School Boys Basketball 
  • University of Notre Dame Football



The Only Way Is Through platform will come to life this 2020 through experiential events in major cities such as New York, London and Shanghai. Under Armour, in partnership with iHeartRadio, is also launching The Only Way Is Through podcast, which will offer listeners access into the world of elite athletes and their stories, training, and mentors.
  • The Only Way Is Through will run across broadcast, online, out-of-home, and social media platforms with a focus on key global sport and cultural moments in 2020. Activations with Under Armour's world-class roster of athletes, trainers, grassroots and collegiate partners will continue to deliver the message throughout the year.
  • Check out UA.com for the latest performance product and innovations that our athletes put to the test every day, including UA RUSH™; UA HOVR™ Machina; UA Recover products, and more.

Shawarma Shack gives back to the Taal Volcano victims


Shawarma Shack, notable for its buy one, take one shawarma, visited the affected communities of the recent Taal Volcano eruption, particularly those in Tanauan City, Batangas. Bottled water and relief goods were donated to over 1,000 families in different areas. 
This good came from the heart of Shawarma Shack founder Walther Buenavista's wife, Patricia Buenavista, who spent her early childhood in Tanauan City. It was disclosed that she has relatives residing in the area when the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) raised alert level 4 for Taal Volcano on January 12, 2020.


Multiple houses and livelihoods were destroyed since the volcano started erupting, forcing residents within the 14-kilometer radius from the main crater to immediately evacuate. This is when the bayanihan evidently blossomed among Filipinos—everyone, even in their own little way, lent a helping hand.


Shawarma Shack visited and gave aid to 170 families relocated to La Consolation College, 70 families at Daughters of Mary Immaculate School, 89 families at Tanauan Local Government Unit Evacuation Center, 120 families at Tapia Elementary School in Barangay Trapiche, 98 families at Jesus is Lord Christian School, 45 families at Tanauan City College, 250 families at Pamahalaang Sentral ng Hilagang Tanauan, 98 families at Ulango Elementary School, and 92 families at Pantay Bata Elementary School.



Tanauan City Vice Mayor Atty. Herminigildo "Jun-jun" G. Trinidad assisted the Buenavista family along with other Shawarma Shack volunteers during this relief operation. 
Get a glimpse of how Shawarma Shack extended a helping hand to Taal Volcano eruption victims by watching this video.
