Regine Velasquez returns to acting by way of Nigel Santos’ “Yours Truly, Shirley,” one of eight official entries in the 2019 edition of the Cinema One Originals Film Festival.

She was last seen in a leading role on the big screen in Joyce Bernal’s 2012 rom-com “Of All the Things,” where she costarred with Aga Muhlach.
The singer-actress, who plays a widow in her entry, is one of the indie showcase’s biggest draws on its 15th year.
