Cinemanila Launches Sine Barangay


Just weeks after the conclusion of Dekada Cinemanila: the 10th Cinemanila International Film Festival, Cinemanila launches Sine Barangay, a 5-day program of master classes and outdoor screenings of participating Cinemanila films. Sine Barangay opens tomorrow, November 18 and runs through November 22nd in Marikina.

The event, held in cooperation with Marikina City and Marikina Mayor Marides Fernando, will kick off with workshops in directing, indie filmmaking, cinematography and editing on November 18 and 19. The workshops are to be held by renowned local filmmakers such as Raymond Red, Lav Diaz and Raya Martin.

As part of the 5-day event, Cinemanila will have outdoor screenings from November 20-22 at the Marikina River Park. Participating shorts and documentaries from the recently concluded Dekada Cinemanila will be screened as part of Cinemanila's ongoing effort to make local indie films more accessible to the public.

"The key is taking these films out of the cinemas and bringing it to the communities through outdoor screenings organized in cooperation with the local government units," said festival director Tikoy Aguiluz. "After 10 years of showing the best in world and Southeast Asian cinema in the theaters, we believe this is a natural next step for Cinemanila, which we can and will continue year-round."
Also to be premiered at Cinemanila's Sine Barangay are two short films directed by former Eraserheads band members Ely Buendia and Marcus Adoro. Their shorts, produced in cooperation with Cinemanila, will screen on November 20.

Admission for the Cinemanila Sine Barangay workshops and screenings is free on a first come, first-served basis. For inquiries, email cinemanila@gmail. com.
