“Video creation on Facebook Watch has turned into a conversation because it enables the real- time interaction between creators and their audiences,” adobo Video Fest 2021 Jury President Quark Henares said. “This two-way communication and collaboration leads to the creation of a community. Like the remix culture from the 80s where we get a song and remix it, creators today do their own riff of something viral which then becomes a dialogue between different creators, forming a community.
