Cinemalaya 2014

So there goes another Cinemalaya year for me. After seeing 15 Full Lengths and 10 Short Films, napagod ako, nagutom at naduling. Pero OK na OK lang. Ibang klaseng amats ang naibibigay ng mundo ng pelikula. Salamat sa Cinemalaya X.

Para sa mga nagtatanong ng aking top 5 for this year, narito na. Pinaghalo ko na ang mga entries from the Director’s Showcase, and New Breed Categories:

  1. DAGITAB (New Breed Category)
  2. CHILDREN’S SHOW (New Breed Category)
  3. THE JANITOR (Director’s Showcase)
  4. HUSTISYA (Director’s Showcase) ; MARIQUINA (New Breed Category)
  5. KASAL (Director’s Showcase)

You can catch these films at the CCP and participating Ayala Cinemas until Sunday, August 10.

I have to admit, though, that this year’s line up cannot par with the entries from previous years, especially last year’s Cinemalaya. Kadalasan pa nga, hindi nagkakasundo ang mga bloggers at critics sa CCP sa kanya-kanyang mga bet. But then again, it simply shows that there is the re-emergence of well-thought criticisms and diverse independent opinions on our local independent cinema, and it is still good!

Mabuhay ang Pelikulang Pilipino!
