Now on its 9th year, Cinemagis continues to serve as a platform for young and professional filmmakers in Northern Mindanao to pour out their passion, stories and filmmaking skills, and for cultivating the experience and growth of local film audiences.

This year’s festival shortlisted five professional entries, 12 student films, and seven special film features, which will be screened at the Xavier University Little Theater and SM Cagayan de Oro Cinema 1 from January 25 to 28.

With the purpose of being the springboard for budding artists to tackle a wide range of social issues in Mindanao using film as the medium, Cinemagis has curated motion pictures that have already been screened and awarded in national and international independent film festivals. Its growth since 2009 is its own motivation to keep the momentum escalating.
