Three Filipino independent filmmakers showcased their films at an international film festival held in Warsaw, Poland.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said in a statement Monday that Filipino indie directors Brillante Mendoza, Khavn dela Cruz, and Louie Ignacio presented their films “Alpha, the Right to Kill”, “Bamboo Dogs,” and “School Service” at the 34th Warsaw International Film Festival.


Mendoza’s film, “Alpha, the Right to Kill,” tells the story of a drug trafficker named Abel and the disappearance of a policeman and his informer, the money and drugs during an investigation.

Cruz’s “Bamboo Dogs” shows the real-life story of the Kuratong Baleleng gang and its downfall.


Ignacio’s “School Service” tells the story of Maya, a victim of “school service,” a vehicle which looks like a regular school bus but instead it transports children to Manila where they become beggars.

The Warsaw Film Festival was held from Oct. 12 to Oct. 21. Established in 1985, the festival was recognized by the International Federation of Film Producers Associations as an international film festival in 2009. /ee
