Full-length feature films to look out for:
- “Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros” by Michiko Yamamoto – she wrote/co-wrote the screenplays of the excellent Magnifico and the preachy Santa Santita, respectively.
- “Lasponggols” by Sigfreid Barros-Sanchez – I’ve been familiar with the name since he used to do music reviews for a local rock rag I read way too much in high school. I believe he directed Sugarfree’s Hari ng Sablay music video, and has also been active in writing for mainstream films, too.
Haven’t been heavily into filmfests post-college, considering I used to customize my class schedule so it won’t conflict with the UP Film Center screenings back in college.
Anyway, the event could have been a pretty good filler to my blank, bum days, but the ticket prices are a little too high for me.
I’ve also seen the email asking for Cinemanila volunteers. Though about it, and frankly, I’m still thinking about it.
