Invitation to 2nd Asia-Pacific CBR Conference 2011

October 4, 2011

This morning I received an email from the representative of the Programme Committee of the 2nd Asia-Pacific CBR Congress Barney McGlade informing me of the acceptance of my submitted abstract entitled “Documentary Films as Effective Advocacy Tool in Promoting the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.” Receiving the confirmation was unexpected. I actually already forgot that I submitted one. Nevertheless, I am happy that they did consider it.

It came at the height of my current activities as: preparing for the shooting with the SILENT STEPS, the all-Deaf dance performers of DLS-CSB School of Deaf Education and Applied Studies on Thursday, October 6, readying the Ultimo Adios DVD orders of the descendants of Dr. Jose Rizal [had to sell to add up to production maintenance and operating expenses], editing the other FSL films, starting with A FILIPINAS, and reporting back to edit Kingpin Asiong-the international version today.

In between all the above activities, I have to prepare what they need including the power-point that will be used.
