9 things to watch out during Cinema Rehiyon 9

4:05:00 PM



I have to be honest this post have been put off since Friday, for two reasons: a. It might sound self serving for I am volunteering for the festival b. It might not be helpful. But I think it is part of Nabunturan history, the first municipality to host the national event for regional cinema.

But allow me to share so that I could put it out off my system, for I can not be present during the day time screenings. 

Anyway, the title for today's blog post have been on it's fourth revision from 9 things I want to do during Cinema Rehiyon 9 to 9 persons to have your photo taken with during Cinema Rehiyon 9, and I forgot the other two titles.  

Today's blog post title is: 9 things to watch out during Cinema Rehiyon 9. There are many events, reasons and people to watch out during the national film festival for the regional cinema, but here are my top 9:

1. The opening film.  Women of the Weeping River, is the 40th Gawad Urian Best Picture. Also, what makes the opening film special is that  it's the film's first screening in Mindanao.

2. Cinema Rehiyon : Quo Vadis. One of the Cinema Rehiyon 9 forum is directed into deepening the understanding of where the national film festival of regional cinema is heading to as it enters it's 10th year. Panelist of the said forum will be the regional film festival directors. The forum will be on August 25, 2017 at the Social Hall of Provincial Capitol of Compostela Valley, 9:00 am.

3. Forums. The August 23, 2017 forum is about the full length filmmakers journey on creating their films. Another forum to watch out for is the Production Management Workshop and Distribution by the film producers Moira Lang and Bianca Valbuena.

4. Screening of full length films from Pista ng Pelikula ng Pilipino and other film fest. The most talked about Patay na si Hesus by Victor Villanueva and Zig Dulay’s Paglipay. Lem Lorca's Ned's Project, and Petersen Vargas' 2 Cool 2 Be 4gotten

5. Award-wining Mindanaoan films and films shot in Mindanao. Bagane Fiola's Baboy HalasVic Acedillo, Jr's Lando and Bugoy, Sinag Maynila Best Film, Tu Pug Imatuy by Arbi Barbarona  and Teng Mangansakan's Forbidden Memory.

6. The ground breaking ceremony of Cinematheque Nabunturan. It will happen on the August 25th. Nabunturan's Cinematheque is the first Cinematheque that is built from scratch. It is the third Cinematheque following Davao and Zamboanga.

7. Pabonggahan Filmmathon. A new activity for the Cinema Rehiyon 9.

8. The almost hundred short films, including Sherador.   There are 34 short films from Mindanao, 35 shorts from Visayas and 28 films representing Luzon.

9. The closing film. Sunday Beauty  Queen, the Best Film of the 2016 Metro Manila Film Festival will be the Cinema Rehiyon 9's closing Film.

So if you are a resident of a neighboring city or municipality, don't miss the opportunity to celebrate the richness of regional cinema at Nabunturan on August 22-26, 2017.
