The Cinemalaya Film Festival is the annual showcase of the best indie filmes in the country. Now on its 6th year, Cinemalaya kicks off this Friday, July 9 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines in Manila.
Along with usual fray of full length and short films, the 6th Cinemalaya film fest promises to be particularly exceptional with the inclusion of a new category in this year’s competition: the Open Director’s Showcase.
For the first time in 6 years, veteran directors like Joel Lamangan, Mark Meily, and Gil Portes will join in on the fray with their respective films. (For the full list of entries and film schedules, click here.)
Philippine independent cinema at its finest, is found here. Present too, are the country’s finest indie film actors. Check out the gallery and see who the golden ten are.
