Philippine independent cinema has found its home at Teatrino at the Greenhills Shopping Center.
Starting January 17, the biggest little theater in the metro’s busiest shopping hub, is bringing back The Teatrino Film Series (TFS) so Philippine ciema buffs can view or re-view acclaimed independent films that were shown on limited engagement only in commercial theaters.
Launched last year, TFS started September 13 and ran through November 29 for twelve Saturdays. Screening to a small but enthusiastic crowd, the series had a successful run that had movie audiences clamoring for more.
Giving in to insistent public demand, the Music Museum Group is running TFS again in 2015, starting with its choice movies for January – two movies per Saturday. On January 17, the Cinemalaya 2014 hit, “Dagitab” makes a comeback at 5 p.m., while “Six Degrees of Separation from Lilia Cuntapay”, the 2011 “mockumentary feature film starring Lilia Cuntapay and directed by Antoinette Jadaone, goes on at 7:30 p.m. This film won 6 awards in the Cinema One Originals Digital Film Festival, including a Best Actress award for Cuntapay.
On January 31, crowd favorite “Sana Dati” by Jerrold Tarog will be screened at 5 p.m. while “Mayohan”, a film about the May month celebrations in Infanta, Quezon starring Lovi Poe goes on screen at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are now available at P200 per film at all Greenhills Cinemas (Promenade and Theater Mall) or at Teatrino.
