Cinemanila 2009

The 11th edition of the Cinemanila International Film Festival opens today at the Market! Market! Cinemas in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. Brillante Mendoza's Lola opens the festival which is by invitation only. Public screenings for the film are scheduled on the 17th, 18th, and 20th.

You can find a list of the festival entries and screenings here.


Here are ways to get to Market! Market! if you do not have your own transport.

a. Take the MRT and get off at the Guadalupe Station. Take the jeepneys located at the back of Jollibee EDSA-Guadalupe going to Gate 3 or Housing.

b. Take the MRT and get off at the Ayala Station. Take the jeepneys or Bonifacio Global City buses located at the back of the gasoline station near the Ayala-EDSA intersection.

c. If you're coming from Libis/Ortigas/Rizal areas, take an FX taxi and get off at Buting (C5-Kalayaan Intersection). Cross the footbridge to the other side of the street and get on any jeep (except for those going to West Buting).

d. Get a cab from Ayala Avenue or Buendia. Cab fare will cost you around P70.

Mukang hindi ako makakanood ng Cinemanila ngayon; layo ng venue for me. Ehehe, may palayo-layo pa kong nalalaman; in truth, tinatamad lang ako mag commute. :D
