“GOING international, definitely.” Ito ang inaasahan ng Cignal Entertainment sa pagpapalabas ng una nilang venture, Ang Babaeng Allergic sa Wi Fi na pinagbibidahan nina Sue Ramirez, Jameson Blake, at Markus Paterson magsisimulang mag-stream ngayong Agosto 21.
“I think ito na ang start. And we’re very happy and platform talaga itong Netflix para ma-introduce ang mga pelikula natin internationally,” sambit pa ng Cignal.
Totoo naman ang tinurang ito ng Cignal dahil ang Netflix, ay kilala sa matagumpay na pagpapalabas ng Stranger Things, Black Mirror, House of Cards, at The Crown. At makakasama na rito ang Ang Babaeng Allergic Sa Wi Fi, isang sweet, romantic comedy na ipinrodyus nga ng Cignal Entertainment, kasama ang October Train Films at The IdeaFirst Company.
Ang Babaeng Allergic Sa WiFi ay mapapanood ay available globally maliban sa China, Taiwan, Japan, at India.
“I am excited that our film will reach the diverse audience of Netflix,” sambit naman ng direktor ng Ang Babaeng Allergic sa Wi Fi na si Jun Robles Lana. ”The younger viewers will see themselves in the characters and perhaps wonder what it’s like to be suddenly disconnected from the digital world.
“Older viewers, meanwhile, will see the nostalgia and see how life, and love, survived without technology.”
Ayon naman kay Jane Jimenez Basas, President & CEO of Cignal TV Inc., “The opportunity to tell relevant and heartwarming stories is an art. We chose to co-produce ‘Ang Babaeng Allergic Sa Wi Fi with October Train Films and The IdeaFirst Company because of the popularity of using gadgets and being on social media amongst teenagers, around which the plot of the story revolves.
“The film speaks to young people as well as the young at heart. We at CIGNAL are very proud that our quaint and beautiful film will finally be shown to a much wider audience by Netflix. Indeed, the film’s acquisition provides an opportunity for CIGNAL Entertainment to share our creative vision to the rest of the world.”
Unang napanood ang Ang Babaeng Allergic sa Wi Fi noong 2018 Pista Ng Pelikulang Pilipino, a film festival na inorganisa ng Film Development Council of the Philippines.
