Please note that there will be some changes in the program: the 14th Cinemanila International Film Festival will have two opening films, Aki Kaurismäki’s Le Havre and Tetsuaki Matsue’s Flashback Memories 3D and the festival will be closing with up-and-coming Thai director Nawopol Thomrangrattanarit’s 36.
Flashback Memories 3D was in the official selection of the 2012 Tokyo International Film Festival where it won Audience Award, while 36 won the New Currents and FIPRESCI awards at the 2012 Busan International Film Festival.
We regret to inform all of you that the previously scheduled closing film Mekong Hotel by Apichatpong Weerasethakul will no longer be screened due to conflicts in print traffic schedule.
And to thank you for your continued support, Cinemanila will be giving Opening Night passes for two for the invitational screening of Flashback Memories in 3D on December 5 to the first 25 people who will like this post on Facebook.
Thank you very much and see you at the 2012 Cinemanila!
