The special multi-day run for the restored version of Lino Brocka’s Maynila sa mga Kuko ng Liwanag continues.
With Gerardo de Leon’s birth centennial for the year, UP Film Institute’s recurrent National Artist Special has to focus for the month on the great master’s oeuvre.
Now on its fifth straight year is the Brazilian Film Festival courtesy of the Embassy of the Federative Republic of Brazil.
For its part, the European Union mounts its own diplomatic event with distinguished screenings matched by a roundtable forum and reception.
A delegation from the Tropfest South East Asia in turn is all set for a presentation to enlist Philippine participation in the festival hailed as the largest of its kind in the world.
Goethe Institut and Alliance Francaise each extend partnership with the UP Film Institute with hallmarks of their respective country’s cinema.
Some of the latest Cinemalaya features make it to the premier state university culminating no less with the much-talked-about Directors Showcase entry, Ces Evangelista’s Amor y Muerte. Other Cinemalaya features are brought to the university by UP Cineastes Studio, UP Cinema and UP Samaskom.
