Award-winning screenwriter Armando 'Bing' Lao conducts workshop

Armando “Bing” Lao may not be a familiar name to most film viewers, but he is a writing guru who is only too eager to share his talent with new filmmakers.

This May, he will serve as Workshop Master for the Writing for Film Workshop of the International Institute for Film and Arts for five consecutive Saturdays from May 2 to 30 (1 p.m. to 6 p.m.) at LAB 315, Evekal Building, 855 Arnaiz Avenue (Pasay Road), Legazpi Village, Makati City.

Bing won awards and acclaim for writing the scripts of such films as “Takaw-Tukso” (Urian Best Screenplay, 1987), “Itanong mo sa Buwan” (Urian Best Screenplay, 1989), “Oras-Oras, Araw Araw” (Film Academy Award Best Screenplay, 1990), “Sana Pag-ibig Na,” “Pila-Balde” (Urian Best Screenplay, 2000), “Tuhog” (Urian Best Screenplay, 2001), “La Vida Rosa” (Urian Best Screenplay, 2002) and “Serbis” (Cannes Film Festival Official Entry, 2008). He also served as creative consultant for “Bridal Shower” and “Kubrador.”

The IIFA Writing for Film Workshop with Bing Lao is limited to those who are intent in pursuing a career in film writing. Workshop Fee is P10,000 (US $ 240). There are limited partial scholarship slots still available.
