Spanish Film Festival in Manila

Thursday, October 1, 2009



.
It's a triple treat for film buffs as Instituto Cervantes de Manila brings back Pelicula, the biggest annual Spanish Film Festival in Asia, at chosen venues in Metro Manila from OCtober 1 to 31.

.
Due to the past successes of its first seven seasons, organizers have doubled the number of films (this year more than 40!), gone from one to three venues and lengthened the film festival. Cultural events have also been calendared, in line with the theme of this years's festiva: Locos por el Cine or Adik sa Pelikula.
.
With new partnerships forged by Instituto Cervantes, the cultural arm of the Spanish Embassy of the Philippines, and the strengthening support from the Spanish filmmakers, last year's attendance cinema enthusiasts is expected to increase this year. Last year, some 20,000 spectators attend the festival.
.
"This year marks our 8th edition and we're very proud of how far the Festival's come in such a short period of time, " said Instituto Cervantes director Jose Rodriguez. " We believe Pelicula has the potential to foster incredible growth in arts and entertainment and attract the best of the best acclaimed Spanish and Latin American filmamakers to this area. We are especially proud of the reputation the Festival has developed over the years as a great local venue to feature and premier award-winning Spanish films."
.
Selection of films will be divided into 4 groups this year: Official section at Greenbelt 3 cinemas featuring Spanish contemporary and award-winning films; Spanish & Filipino documentaries at CCP which is a selection of 12 documentaries that bear testament to the growing vitality of the genre in the two countries; Spanish Cinema in 8 Films at the College of Saint Benilde featuring eight classical Spanish movies; and a selection of Latin-American indie productions entitled Cine en construccion (Film in progress), also scheduled at College of Saint Benilde.
.
Película kicks off on October 1 with an opening night featuring the movie No me pidas que te bese porque te besaré (Don't ask me to kiss you, because I will). This comedy is about a man who is repenting his decision to marry and takes guitar lessons with "special" people to distract himself before his wedding. Gracing the opening bight at the Greenbelt 5 Fashion walk area will be a dance performance by B612, a vertical dance company who was brought to Manila by Instituto Cervantes to display their world-class dance and lights to local audience.
.
Multi- awarded films such as El truco del manco ( The one-handed trick), Una palabra tuya, Los girasoles ciegos (The Blind Sunflowers), Rotorno a Hansala), and 3 Días make their Philippine premiere at the film festival, which starts also on October 1 at the Greenbelt Cinemas.
.
Other films include El Nido Vacío (Empty Nest), a comedy that explores the gap that occurs when children grow up and move away from home; and Dieta mediterranea (Mediterranean Diet), a story about a girl named sofia who was regarded as the "best chef in the world" and the two men who helped her become a legend.
.
On October 7, Película gives tribute to Mexico's film industry with the Mexican Cinema Night. Headlining this evening 2008 San Diego Latino Film Festival, La Zona (The Zone), a film about a wealthy compound surrounded by walls and surveillance system to protect the locals against the violence of the slums.
.
Running at the De La Salle University- College of St. Benilde (DLSU-CSB) from October 1 to 31 is a photo exhibition on the evolution of the Spanish cinema. Tagged as Crónica Visual del Cine Español (A Visual Chronicle of Spanish Cinema), the exhibit will be divided into the three periods of the Spanish cinema, aiming to recreate the journey of the films from the old Europe and Latin American tradition to the current contemporary style.
.
Alongside the exhibits at the DLSU-CSB will be a series of workshops on scriptwriting and editing as well as the showcasing of Latin American indie films. On October 14, 12:30 p.m., Chilean director Oscar Cardenas will grace the DLSU-CSB for the Asian premiere of his film Rabia.
.

Featured in the exhibit – the first of its kind in the country – are local directors and actors from different generations like Peque Gallaga, Brilliante Mendoza, Lav Diaz and many more.
