2Rivers Celebrates The New Golden Age of Filipino Movies

We Filipinos love movies. It has become part of our lives like jaywalking and invited others to share our food while expecting them to refuse. A lot pf people have declared that the local film industry is dead, killed by the national mania for buying pirated DVDs. 

But this is the Philippines, where even ghosts get pensions.

So we are all happy to say, loud and clear, that Filipino movies are alive, kicking and now showing! 2Rivers celebrates the resurgence of world class films we can all call our very own!

Ruel Bayani’s No Other Woman is officially the highest grossing Filipino movie of all time

Wenn V. Deramas’ Praybeyt Benjamin looks like it has beaten the record

Even before that was parade of mainsteam blockbusters like Jerry Lopez Sineneng’s  Way Back Home

Paul Soriano’s Thelma

Jose Javier Reyes’  Wedding Tayo (Wedding Hindi)


Paul Soriano’s Journey Home

Jun Lana’s  My Neighbor’s Wife

Marilou Diaz Abaya’s  Ikaw Ang Pag-Ibig

Mark A. Reyes’s Tween Academy: Class of 2012

and Chris Martinez’s Joey Gosengfiao’s Temptation Island


Ang mga kasali sa Cinemalaya 2011 ay panalo sa takilya nang ipalabas ang ilan sa mga ito sa mge regular na sinehan, tulad ng Zombadings: Patayin Sa Syokot Si Remington directed by Jade Castro

at Marlon Rivera’s  Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank – na pambato natin sa Oscar Awards.

Ipinalabas na rin ang Rakenrol

 Ligo Na U, Lapit Na Me directed by Erick Salud, Noel D. Ferrer and Jerry Gracio based on the bestselling novel by Eros Atalia

One of my favorites:  Alvin Yapan’s , Sayaw Ng Daliwang Kaliwang Paa

Sana ipalabas na rin ang Every Other Time ni Gino M. Santos

and the other films of Cinemalaya.

Abot-langit ang papuri ng New York Times kay Joel Torre para sa Amigo directed by John Sayles
