Two PH films in Shanghai
Two Filipino movies will be shown at the 20th Shanghai International Film Festival in China, from June 17 to 26. Avid Liongoren’s “Saving Sally” and Bradley Liew’s “Singing in Graveyards” are included in Shanghai’s “The Belt and Road” program, which is envisioned to “enhance international communication.”
“The Belt and Road” section features films from Bhutan, Afghanistan, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Macedonia and Iran.
The Shanghai fest is one of the Top 15 A-list festivals accredited by the International Federation of Film Producers’ Associations. It seeks to “create opportunities for promising newcomers and present foreign and domestic movie cultures to audiences.”
According to its site, the Shanghai fest has been “building a cultural exchange program for foreign and domestic films … through four major activities: the awards, market, forum and film panorama.” —BAYANI SAN DIEGO JR.
