HINDI lang ang Cinema One Originals ang gumagawa ng restored films dahil sumabak na rin ang Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) na ini-restore ang dalawang pelikulang tumatak sa isipan ng manonood, ang Himala ni Ishmael Bernal at Moral ni Marilou Diaz Abaya na kasama sa Far East Film Festival sa Udine, Italy simula April 26-27, 2018. Ito’y sa selebrasyon ng One Hundred Years of Philippine Cinema.
Kabilang din ang mga pelikulang Si Chedeng at Si Apple, Smaller and Smaller Circles, at Ang Larawan na kasama sa Agency’s International Film Festival Assistance Program (IFFAP) sponsored ng FDCP.
In celebration of One Hundred Years of Philippine Cinema, the Festival will also feature Sandaan: Philippine Cinema Centennial Talks. Speakers include Mr. Ed Lajano, Festival Director of QCinema, Bianca Balbuena, CEO of EpicMedia, renowned actress Elizabeth Oropesa for Filipino Popular Cinema na ang naging moderator ay si Mr. Max Tessier.
Ayon kay FDCP Head Liza Dino, ”I am pleased to say that The Sandaan: Philippine Centennial Talks is our way of sharing our history and our way of filmmaking to the world as we celebrate this important milestone.”
Dagdag pa, “Through FDCP’s IFFAP, we were able to bridge Filipino filmmakers in International Film Festivals. These are a few of the opportunities that we are proud that we were able to provide to level the playing field when it comes to the Global Arena, because these films can actually deliver and can compete head on given the proper support from the government.”
Ang Far East Film Festival ay nagsimula na noon pang Abril 20, Biyernes hanggang 29, Linggo 2018.
