Erik Matti’s Creative Process: Rebelde Class Batch 19



For more than eight years of providing accessible film education to budding filmmakers, Rebelde has been making another of its “premieres”. This November 27, for the first time, Filipino genre maestro Erik Matti will spearhead the 19th Rebelde Workshop!

Rebelde Class is a Rebelde filmmaking workshop program that offers immersive film education accessible to all. Regardless of the limits caused by the pandemic, Rebelde continues to ignite aspiring filmmakers as they can attend workshops remotely through these exclusive online courses.

Erik Matti, one of the most famous Filipino directors, took a big step forward when his feature film “On The Job: The Missing 8” arrived at the Venice Film Festival this year and received a five-minute standing ovation . His first installment “On The Job” also caused a sensation in the Directors’ Fortnight section at Cannes in 2013 where it was nominated for the SACD Prize, and was acclaimed globally and nationally. He is also known for his other feature films “Mano Po 2: My Home”, “Gagamboy”, “Seklusyon”, “Honor Thy Father”, “Kuwaresma” & “BuyBust” – films that span different types of genres. His latest film On The Job: Missing 8 received a 5-minute standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival and its lead actor won the award for best actor.

In November, find out how Erik Matti creates his films – planting his concepts, sowing them with ideas, propagating them in real stories and turning them into films. Get to know his creative process for this one-day workshop with Rebelde Class Lot 19. All for just 1,500 P.


Rebelde is a diverse community of budding filmmakers from different parts of the country, founded by JE Tiglao, a young independent filmmaker based in the Philippines. Together with his comrades, they made films which were shown at Cinemalaya, Gawad Urian and other film festivals abroad. They also directed their first feature film, Metamorphosis, the first Filipino intersex film and won most of the awards at Cinema One Originals.

Rebelde has also created groundbreaking events like the Rebelde Film Camp, a unique jamboree of filmmakers in a secluded area to learn cinema and celebrate the magic of cinema.
