Filipino Cinephiles, rejoice! The Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP), is bringing us a variety of Filipino films, from Brocka to Diaz. Local films are not the only ones that are being showcased here but also some films from Denmark are in this list.
Interested beings can find the Cinematheque Manila at 855 T. M. Kalaw St., Ermita, Manila. The Cinematheque will start on January 8 with Brocka’s Maynila sa mga Kuko ng Liwanag and will end on January 31 with Diaz’s Mula sa Kung Ano ang Noon.
So don’t miss your chance to see these state-of-the-art films and grab your friends while you’re at it!
The Cinematheque was designed, and is destined to be, an alternative and accessible venue:
- For classic and contemporary Filipino films, both mainstream and independent
- For state-of-the-art foreign films sourced through the FDCP’s Film Cultural Exchange Program with other countries, and
- For workshops and symposiums on directing, scriptwriting, editing, cinematography, and all other aspects of filmmaking
