Tyrone Acierto’s “The Grave Bandits” will compete in the 10th Festival Nits de Cinema Oriental in Barcelona, Spain, from July 9 to 14, according to producer Vanessa Ulgado. The indie movie is vying for the Lucky Cat award in the fest that is also known as the Asian Summer Film Festival. “Grave Bandits” won best picture and director in the New Wave section of the Metro Manila Film Festival last December.
