Sinepanghalina to launch “Direk 2 the Point: The Art of Visual Storytelling
Sinepanghalina is a Filipino horror film production made up of a group of passionate filmmakers and enthusiasts that want to keep developing great socially relevant horror films for Filipino audiences. They are also known for their multi-award-winning short films “Ma?” “Dungaw,” and “Bisperas,” which have been acknowledged at numerous local and international film festivals and have won numerous prizes and recognitions.
Since the pandemic is still underway, their goal of providing socially relevant horror films to their viewers has been placed on hold.

Their weekly programing is composed of different contents such as everyday on Facebook: Sunday Breakdown, One-liner Sundays, Short-list Sundays, 8 Tips, Trendy Tuesdays, Did You Know?, Random Wednesday, Character of the Week, Unexposed, 10 Life Lessons, Thrilling Thursday, Fan Art Friday, Films to Stream Online, Face Off Friday, and Pocket Film School; every Monday on Instagram: Roll and Reminisce, Fashion in Fiction, and Read the Lens; for YouTube every Wednesday: Buttered Popcorn, Behind the Spotlight, Flick Flashback, and Pelikhula.
They swerved to strengthen their presence on their social media sites and deliver engaging content to their viewers by executing one of their online contents, as they continue to reach over 4.9 million organic people monthly and have earned 63,000 organic Facebook followers, 1,742 Instagram followers, and 843 subscribers on YouTube as of today. They will offer a series of webinars to enlighten viewers on the filmmaking process and what to expect once they enter the industry.
