YBCA Presents 4th New Filipino Cinema 2015—10 Days, 14 Films, 7107 Islands (june 12-28, 2015)

New Filipino Cinema

Now in it's 4th year, YBCA brings you the latest and greatest Filipino cinema. The independent cinema of the Philippines is remarkably vibrant and creative. Like the country itself, which is made up of thousands of little islands, each with its own culture, dialect, and people, this showcase provides a snapshot of the huge range of talent in Filipino cinema today. All films are shown digitally, in their original language with English subtitles. 

Several women filmmakers will be participating in a Q&A following the screening.

Co-directors Antoinette Jadaone & Irene Villamor will attend the screening of their film Relaks, It's Just Pag-Ibig on June 12. Director Sigrid Bernardo and actress Maria Isabel Lopez will be attending the screening of LORNA on June 14. And finally, Antoinette Jadaone will also attend the screening of her filmsThat Thing Called Tadhana on June 20.
