Three Filipino films are competing at the 37th Oporto International Film Festival, also known as the Fantasporto, to be held in Oporto, Portugal, from Feb. 24 to March 4.

Avid Liongoren’s “Saving Sally” and Roderick Cabrido’s “Tuos” are vying for top honors in the main section, while Eduardo Roy Jr.’s “Pamilya Ordinaryo” is included in the Directors’ Week category.

All three Filipino films are also part of the Orient Express competition.


According to the fest’s web site, the event’s mission is “to promote high quality independent cinema and a new generation of filmmakers.” Industry trade paper Variety has rated the Fantasporto “as one of the 25 leading festivals of the world.”

It’s a “festival filled with personality,” its site asserts, that welcomes “all kinds of films, all genres, all audiences, but with a special taste for fantasy.” BAYANI SAN DIEGO JR.
