‘Birdshot’ goes to Adelaide
Mikhail Red’s “Birdshot” continues to fly all over the world. Next stop for the Filipino movie is the Adelaide Film Festival in Australia, from Oct. 5 to 15.
Producer Pamela Reyes related that “Birdshot” will have two screenings at the fest: on Oct. 10 at the Mercury Cinema and on Oct. 13 at the GU Film House Adelaide.
According to the fest’s website, the biennial event is “one of the boldest and most innovative in Australia” and has established itself as a “platform for new talent.”
“It’s exciting,” Red told the Inquirer. “It’s another continental premiere for our film. Plus, it’s in the main competition.”
Red hopes to attend the fest, especially since he has family in Adelaide.
“I am so happy that the film continues to travel even after its local run.”
The film, he said, “has opened a lot of doors … I am so proud of this film and the talented team behind it.”
He noted that it “showcases the diversity of Philippine cinema.”
Red said he only has two blank pages left in his passport and “we still have a few festivals booked until mid-2018.”—BAYANI SAN DIEGO JR.
