Filippino old guard with new movies
The whole New Wave of Independent film in the Philippines has also produced new interest in local film history. Therefore it might be fitting, that a new grant that is remarkably similar to the Cinema One productions has allowed some of the old guard of Philippine Cinema to make new films, as the Inquirer reports.
APT Entertainment’s Sine Direk supports the production of six new feature films by Mel Chionglo, Joel Lamangan, Peque Gallaga, Lore Reyes, Mario J. delos Reyes and Soxy Topacio. New films by Laurice Guillen and Marilou Diaz-Abaya (despite her grave illness) are also forthcoming.
