Short film competition marks UFC’s 50 years

To celebrate its golden anniversary as part of every Filipino’s essential home cooking experience, UFC is hosting its first-ever UFC Reel Life: Nagsasama-samang Sarap Short Film Competition, which aims to train the spotlight on the prodigious talents of local filmmakers in creating inspiring and meaningful stories.

All entries must creatively depict the enduring optimism and positivity of Filipinos from all ages in times of difficulty. These should also portray the integral role of UFC products in empowering Filipinos to create nagsasama-samang sarap moments every day.
