ToFarm fest unreels with bolder themes

  Film festivals are a dime a dozen in this movie-crazy country—and that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Unfortunately, there are entries that fail to measure up to prefestival hype, like Cinemalaya’s “Ang Guro Kong ‘Di Marunong Magbasa” and “The Lookout,” Sinag Maynila’s “Abomination,” QCinema’s “The Write Moment,” and the MMFF’s “Kabisera” and the horror,… link: ToFarm fest unreels with bolder themes.....»»

Rain haunts Tofarm film festival

IN KEEPING with the advocacy of the Tofarm Film Festival — “bring the stories of farmers to Filipino as well as foreign audiences,” according to the fest’s managing director Joey Romero — the cast and crew of the six finalists shot their films in the countryside and experienced first-hand what it was like to be a farmer and be at the mercy of the weather. It rained for most of the shooting days, and this proved to be a challenge to the film crews. The film productions continued to be haunted by rain during the gala screenings at the Trinoma Cinema; and Typhoon Ompong (international name: Mangkhut) exited the country on the day of the awarding ceremonies at the Shangri-La Manila.

25-year wait over for Richard Quan; ‘Tanabata’ tops ToFarm fest

  To prepare for his character in Hubert Tibi's period drama "1957," actor Richard Quan said he consciously tried to lose weight and didn't sleep much for four days.   Richard's sacrifice paid off as it won for him the best supporting actor award at the 2018 ToFarm Film Festival awards ceremony held on Sunday night in Makati City.   "I wanted to look tired and haggard, so I would only sleep for three hours at night," he told the Inquirer. Richard's character, Carding, is a poor farmer who fought in the war. "I would also jog every morning while we were staying in Iriga City."   "1957" also won for its writer-director the best screenplay award....Keep on reading: 25-year wait over for Richard Quan; ‘Tanabata’ tops ToFarm fest.....»»

ToFarm finalists will make Direk Maryo J smile from heaven

In a lot of ways, this year's ToFarm Film Festival will serve as a fitting tribute to its late advocate, esteemed filmmaker Maryo J. delos Reyes. At the fest's launch on Tuesday, founder Milagros How pointed out: "I am sure Direk Maryo J is smiling at us from heaven. He loved this festival and gave it his all. It is our duty ... to continue the good work of supporting the Filipino farmer." Delos Reyes passed away after suffering a heart attack last January. Screening committee member and actress Raquel Villavicencio told the Inquirer: "No doubt Direk Maryo would have approved of these stories, if not chose them himself. He shared and supported Dr. How's dream for these films to...Keep on reading: ToFarm finalists will make Direk Maryo J smile from heaven.....»»

Changes in 2018 ToFarm film fest announced

Veteran filmmakers will be invited to direct some of the seven finalists in this year's edition of the ToFarm Film Festival (TFF), its organizers announced on Wednesday. "We were talking about this a week before he passed on. He said he wanted to impose some changes," actress and ToFarm selection committee member Raquel Villavicencio said of the late director Maryo J. delos Reyes. Delos Reyes, who served as ToFarm festival director for two straight years, died of a heart attack in January. "He had wanted to have a screenplay competition in the festival.

Altarejos’ ‘Jino to Mari’ to premiere in Geneva film fest

Joselito Altarejos' "Jino to Mari," a story of two sex workers coerced to perfom sex acts beyond their limits, will have its world premiere at the Black Movie: Festival de Films Indpendants-Genve in Switzerland. The festival in Geneva is known for its selection of auteur cinema, Altarejos said on Friday. "Showing the film at an 'auteur-centric' festival will help me test how the artistic choices I have made in this film resonate with the audience and critics," he added. "'Jino to Mari' is the most daring and boldest film I have ever done. It has made me question not just my art, but my person, and what kind of filmmaker I should be in the future."

Metro film fest irony: Most awarded film still needs to win cinema operators’ nod

The producer of the gay-themed drama "Rainbow's Sunset," the best picture winner among the eight finalists in the ongoing Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF), has appealed to cinema operators not to pull out the film from movie houses despite its reportedly poor box-office performance. "It's a known fact that there aren't many moviegoers on weekdays and on Christmas Day because most of us are attending family reunions," said Harlene Bautista of Heaven's Best Entertainment. "How can people watch (Rainbow's Sunset) if it had been pulled out of cinemas on its second day?" she added, referring to the drop in the number of movie houses showing the movie. From 59 cinemas on Christma...Keep on reading: Metro film fest irony: Most awarded film still needs to win cinema operators’ nod.....»»

What Eric has discovered about Kim, Dennis and JC

  As we welcome December, the countdown to the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) officially begins. The annual fest is already a part of Pinoys' Christmas tradition. So, it would not be complete without a movie from Regal Entertainment, whose entry this year is "One Great Love," starring Kim Chiu, JC de Vera and Dennis Trillo. The "hugot-bangon" film (which opens on Dec. 25) is directed by my good friend, Eric Quizon.   Since Kim and Dennis come from rival networks, it would be interesting to see how their first team-up pans out. Kim veers away from her usual rom-com portrayals and dares to push the boundaries.   May the story of Zyra (Kim), Carl (JC) an...Keep on reading: What Eric has discovered about Kim, Dennis and JC.....»»
