  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.

Italy’s ‘other’ film fest to kick off in Rome

Cate Blanchett, Martin Scorsese, Sigourney Weaver and Michael Moore will all be attending this month's Rome Film Fest, Italy's "other" cinema gathering after Venice. Just don't call it a festival. "We are not a festival and those who want a festival will always be disappointed here," the Fest's director Antonio Monda told journalists on Friday ahead of the Oct. 18-28 event which does not include a competition. "What distinguishes us is that artists, directors, actors, actresses and producers choose Rome even if they don't have a film, book or CD to sell," Monda said. The fest's 13th edition will screen 60 features, including 34 premieres. For the first time in Rome, two 'maj...Keep on reading: Italy’s ‘other’ film fest to kick off in Rome.....»»
