If you failed to catch the film 'Sigwa" during it's Cinemalaya run this year don't fret because it will have a Producers' Premiere at Robinsons Galleria Cinema 5 this coming August 28, 2010 . There will be also more screenings in September at the Metropolitan Theater organized by Bayan Ko and an upcoming school tour. What's more exciting is that the film has been invited by several international film festivals. Via Celebrity World column by Crispina Martinez-Belen at Manila Bulletin (read the full article here)
“ 'Sigwa,' Joel Lamangan’s latest indie movie which was 2010 Cinemalaya’s box-office hit,and which earned for Tirso Cruz III the Best Supporting Actor Award, has received invitation from various international filmfests, among them the Brussels International Film Festival and the Montreal International Film Festival."
I'm very happy that 20 Plus' (the company I'm working for) first venture on producing film has been doing well. Although Sigwa failed to bag top prize in Cinemalaya but the response it has been getting so far is already worth all the effort and hardwork the cast and crew have poured in making this film. If you'll have the chance to watch film, please do watch it :)
