Cinemalaya Movies and Chocolate Kiss Cafe

I went to see Cinemalaya, our country's most celebrated independent film festival that featured original and creative Filipino stories, in the UP Film Center. Each year, Cinemalaya grants Php 500,000 to ten independent film makers, chosen from hundreds of entries from all over the country. I was fortunate enough to catch the entries Limbunan, Rekrut, and the winning entries Two Funerals and Donor.

Both movies could have done with tighter scripts and better cameras, but otherwise I love creative original stories

The theatre was packed!

Across the Film Center is UP's Bahay ng Alumni, which housed the university's famous restaurant, Chocolate Kiss.
