Cinemalaya 2011: Complete CCP & Greenbelt 3 screening schedules (grid format), Cinemalaya Goes to UP schedule, Festival passes…
The seventh edition of the Cinemalaya film festival is… Broader – with exhibition features from several Asian countries Bigger – with external venues at Greenbelt 3 in Makati City Better – Hmmmm… There’s the seductive beauty of Busong, the acidic charm of Kano, the hilarious characters of Ang Damgo ni Eleuteria, and the entertaining gem of a film, Niño.
Frankly, I don’t think the passes are expensive. Festival and flexi passes are good deals. The premium pass though is another story.
Festival Pass (PHP 2000) - access to all 15 competing films (ie. 13 full-length films and 2 short features programs) - access to 8 Netpac films - souvenir program - priority lane access to venues So that is about 23 films. Below PHP 90 per film lang po.
Flexi Pass (PHP 3000) - access to all 15 competing films (ie. 13 full-length films and 2 short features programs) - access to 8 Netpac films - access to 8 Exhibition films of your choice - souvenir program - priority lane access to venues So that makes it 31 films. Slightly above PHP 100 per film lang.
Mahal pa rin and Cinemalayo for residents north of Pasay and Makati?
Both concerns are shot down when the fest goes to UP Diliman. Price of an admission ticket goes down to PHP 80. The atmosphere at Cine Adarna may not approximate the helter skelter at CCP during festival days but it is still a nice place to watch the entries. The mostly Quezon City-based students are an enthusiastic audience and they really get into the films. There might be a Q&A with filmmakers after every screening.
