Film enthusiasts from Mindanao will have a treat this week of November as Cine Europa screens its films on friendships until 20 November at Liceo de Cagayan de Oro. […]
Ambassador-Designate József Bencze of Hungary will inaugurate the Cine Europa in CDO on 18 November with the film, ‘Anyám és más futóbolondok a családból’ or ‘Mom and Other Loonies in the Family’.
The film tells an heartbreaking and amusingly unconventional tale of a family of four generations of “loonies”, narrating the story of Mom who has lived 94 years and has moved 27 times during her lifespan.
Now on its 19th year, Cine Europa is the longest running film festival in the Philippines. It has the widest potential of reaching large audiences as it screens in a variety of venues, from theaters to malls and to universities.
The film festival showcases the quality and ingenuity of European filmmaking from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Norway,
Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. In addition, it features great Filipino movies such as “Ma Rosa”, “Imago”, “Of Sinners and Saints” and “Mana” directed by Brillante Mendoza, Ruben Ribay Gutierrez, Ruben Maria Soriquez and Gabby Fernandez.
The theme for this year’s festival is “Friendship”, a theme meant also to celebrate 25-year anniversary of the opening of the EU Delegation in the Philippines.
