The first ever DAVAO KILIG FILM FESTIVAL has taken place this Love month. This time, the event is 48 hour film-a-thon and 10 teams, comprised of professionals and students, have been chosen from dozens of applicants to shoot and edit and finish their romance comedy (Rom-Com) films within 48 hours.
Last February 13, there was an orientation for all the chosen contestants at Max’s Fried Chicken House regarding the rules and regulations of the competition. Award-winning Mindanawon filmmaker, Bagane Fiola, gave masterclass on the dynamics of making a Rom-Com film after.
Organized by Abreeza Ayala Mall in partnership with PASALIDAHAY and the Film Development Council of the Philippines, the participants had their principal photography within the legal premises of Abreeza Mall from opening to closing time on February 15 and 16. The Premiere Night was held yesterday at the Abreeza Ayala Cinemas.
The awards night on February 29 is something to look forward to as famous Director Prime Cruz of ANG MANANAGGAL SA UNIT 23B and the more recent blockbuster hit, ISA PA, WITH FEELINGS starring Maine Mendoza and Carlo Aquino will be gracing the event.
