For the first time-ever, Cinemalaya opens two major venues for its 7th Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival, “SEE THE UNSEEN”. Aside from the Cultural Center of the Philippines, it is now also held at Greenbelt 3 Cinemas in Makati.
As Nestor Jardin, Cinemalaya Festival Director, had put it – finally their dream of coming to Makati is now a reality. Having Greenbelt 3 Cinemas as a second major venue for the festival is part of the vision of Cinemalaya organizers to make the Festival more accessible to the growing number of audiences that attend Cinemalaya. Ayala Malls Cinemas on the other hand is more than honored to host the prestigious Cinemalaya Festival as it brings the best cinematic works from various talented Filipino filmmakers.
Greenbelt 3 Cinemas will show an all-digital film featuring nine (9) New Breed Full Length films, ten (10) Short Feature Films, eight (8) NETPAC premieres, four (4) Focus Asia (featuring films from Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and Japan) and four (4) Directors Showcase. “Bisperas” by Jeffrey Jeturian, “Busong” by Auraeus Solito, “Isda” by Adolfo Alix Jr. and “Patikul” by Joel Lamangan.
Cinemalaya officially opened in Greenbelt 3 Cinemas last July 16 with the film, MASKARRA by the acclaimed director – Laurice Guillen who also is the Festival Chairman of Competition. The film is a tribute to the late Johnny Delgado which stars Shamaine Buencamino, Tirso Cruz III and daughter Ina Feleo who also wrote the screenplay.
