It's Cinemalaya once again, peeps! Let's support the indies and go to CCP and watch! Michiko and I had a Cinemalaya film marathon the other day, then took our photos with our filmmaker-friends so we can promote their films on this blog.
WATCH Adolf Alix Jr's "Donsol"!
WATCH Arah Badayos' "Mudraks"!
WATCH Dado Lumibao's "In Da Red Corner"!
Not present that day but also have a film in competition is our friend and co-blogger Yam Tanangco. WATCH her short "Geegee At Walterina"!
To those who fear the indies, don't be scared! Here's some little-known trivia about these filmmakers that only you, my blog readers, will know.
* Adolf wrote D' Anothers and for Qpids.
* Arah wrote for the soaps Mangarap Ka and Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay.
* Dado wrote for the soaps Esperanza and Pangako Sa 'Yo.
* Yam also wrote for Qpids, was a story editor of Pinoy Big Brother and directed music videos of Slapshock and April Boy Regino.
See, they're not that snotty! It's just that with Cinemalaya, they finally had the freedom to write and direct the kind of films that they have always wanted to do. So let us SUPPORT!
