Cinemalaya 2011: Bigger and bolder
Thirty one digital films in competition, plus more than a hundred in exhibition, new sections, and a second festival venue all make Cinemalaya bigger and better this year.
With the tagline in festival ads beckoning audiences to “See the Unseen,” Cinemalaya films this year tackle such themes as passion, memory, truth, despair, obsession, terror and splendor.
Cinemalaya will reach a wider audience since it will be held in two places at the same time – its main venue at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) and at Greenbelt 3 in Makati City.
The addition of Greenbelt 3 as a second major venue for the festival is part of the vision of Cinemalaya organizers to make the festival more accessible to the growing number of audiences that attend Cinemalaya.
