Renaissance of Philippine Cinema

Auraeus left a comment on my post about his movie Pisay, I think is worth sharing with everyone:

“Pisay is a beautiful film, simple and sophisticated, direct and campy, one that gets better and better as it goes along. From the evidence gathered, the praise is valid for Filipino cinema as a whole, which is undergoing something of a renaissance.”

by Emmanuel Burdeau Cahiers Du Cinema

Cahiers du Cinema is the most prestigious critic’s group in the world. They have declared that Filipino cinema is on the verge of a renaissance. But a renaissance needs hard work and in order to reach this renaissance, Philippine Independent Cinema needs an audience.

I am happy to say that “Pisay” recently won two awards in the 14th Vesoul International Film Festival of Asian Cinema in France: The Grand Prix du Jury (Grand Prize of the International Jury) and the Prix du Public (Audience Prize).

Pisay will be shown February 20 — 27 exclusively at the following SM theaters:
SM North Edsa Cinema 8, SM Megamall Cinema 9, SM Manila Cinema 4, SM Southmall, SM Fairview Cinema 6 and SM San Lazaro Cinema 6

Help us reach the renaissance of Philippine Cinema. Please watch Pisay the Movie. Go to the Theatres on the first 3 days.

Salamat po!

If you failed to see Pisay last year, now is your chance.
