​Raymond Red​
He is one of the pioneers of modern Filipino independent and alternative cinema. Having a background in Fine Arts and photography, he began by making numerous experimental and narrative super-8mm and 16mm short films in the 1980s. His generation was inspired by the tumultuous era of the Philippines under martial rule in the '70s, from which true alternative and independent filmmaking emerged. Red immediately gained recognition by winning awards and citations, both locally and at the international film festivals scene. He had then, at an early age, begun to inspire a new generation of independent filmmakers. He has since made numerous award-winning feature films, and became a regular lecturer and instructor in various film workshops as well as in film, fine arts, and mass comm. college programs, mentoring early on quite a number of the prominent Filipino independent filmmakers of today.

Red has earned the distinction of being one of the first Filipinos to receive a Rotterdam Hubert Bals Memorial grant, and the first and so far only Filipino filmmaker to have won the prestigious Palme d’Or award at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival for his short film “ANINO”.

Along with other Filmmakers, Raymond Red will teach DIRECTING in WIDE SHOT 2019 - Outdoors.
