Movie fans can now watch the ten featured films in this year’s Cinema One Originals after the festival formally opened Sunday (Nov 13) in Trinoma Cinema 7.
Film makers, artists, and movie aficionados came together during the festival’s opening night and showed support for this year’s roster of independent movies.
In his welcome speech, the head of Cinema One and festival director Ronald Arguelles thanked the audience for their unwavering support for indie cinema every year.
“It’s all about the synergy between the films and the audiences. This synergy is the lifeblood of Cinema One Originals and the lifeblood of Philippine Cinema. This synergy is why we make films every year,” said Ronald.
Special citations were also given to “Ang Babaeng Humayo,” starring Charos Santos-Concio and John Lloyd Cruz, and Cinema One Originals 2015 entries “Manang Biring” and “Miss Bulalacao,” which are all independent films that made waves here and abroad.
Acclaimed foreign movie “The Wailing” also marked the opening of the festival.
Catch the Cinema One Originals films at Trinoma, Glorietta, Gateway, Greenhill Theater Mall, and Cinematheque Centre Manila until November 22. You can also purchase a festival pass to watch all Cinema One Originals films via www.ticketworld.com.ph.
