  • As posted on Facebook earlier by cinematographer Carlo Mendoza, Jun Robles Lana’s “Anino sa Likod ng Buwan” will be having a limited theatrical release starting this Wednesday.

    The award-winning political drama, which was one of two Filipino films that were subjected to online piracy early this month, will finally hit the big screens where its makers are encouraging everyone to watch it.

    Lana posted that “Anino” was scheduled to open on July 20 at Gateway Cinema and Gaisano mall cinemas in Davao City, Toril, Tagum and Digos. Lana’s spouse and fellow filmmaker Perci Intalan, however, posted that Festival Mall and Robinsons Galleria will also screen the film starting this Wednesday.

    Graded A by the Cinema Evaluation Board, “Anino” is also rated R-18 without cuts by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board.

    Both Lana and Intalan are appealing to friends and colleagues to help spread the word on the film’s limited theatrical run by reposting the online promotional materials on social media.

    In addition, “Anino” is also one of several acclaimed films regarded as festival favorites that will be screened at the ongoing CineSB independent Film Festival organized by The Digital Filmmaking Program of the De La Salle – College of Saint Benilde.

    Now on its 6th year, the CineSB film festival promotes the Filipino experience by showcasing some of the best efforts of young filmmakers. The festival has grown to highlight the finest works, not only of Benildeans, but by students from other schools and filmmakers from other regions as well.

    The festival is also known to screen several festival competition films that encourage young filmmakers to explore their unique ideas and fresh perspectives through the creative world of filmmaking.

    Along with “Anino,” other films that are scheduled for screening at the festival are Mario Cornejo’s “Apocalypse Child,” Carlo Encisco Catu’s “Ari: My Life with a King,” Randolph Longjas’ “Star na si Van Damme Stallone,” Lawrence Fajardo’s “Imbisibol,” Carl Joseph Papa’s “Manang Biring,” Pepe Diokno’s “Kapatiran,” and Chuck Gutierrez’s “Iisa.”

    Admission to each screening, which is slated from July 19 to 28, 7PM at the DLS-CSB School of Design and Arts (SDA) Theater, is P150 with a discounted price of P100 for students and senior citizens.

    In addition to the screening, CineSB also offers other related events such as “The Chair” which is a competition of the finest BenildeFilm theses; “Twenty Quatro,” an inter-school 24-hour guerrilla filmmaking competition; “Indie Ani,” a showcase of the outstanding short films coming from different schools in the NCR region; “Harvest Moon,” a film exhibition for undergraduates’ short film projects; and “Cinerehiyon,” exemplary filmmakers from Luzon to Mindanao showcase their masterpieces.

    For its film-related forums, CineSB has also lined-up an impressive list of speakers that will take on various topics include “Apocalypse Child” screenwriter Coreen “Monster” Jimenez, QCinema festival director Ed Lejano, Cinema One Originals festival director Ronald Arguelles,  producers Fernando Ortigas, E.A. Rocha, Vincent Nebrida and Bianca Balbuena, and cinematographers Neil Daza and Lee Briones.(E. Sallan, interaksyon)
