Remember the date: 11.11.11. As with every year, not much info has been released yet. So what do we know so far?
Cinemanila is back in Taguig City. Screenings will be in held in Market! Market!, Fully Booked, and outdoor lawn of Bonifacio High Street.
The festival will run for only 7 days. Mark your calendars. It's November 11-17, 2011.
Italian director Dario Argento and actress Nora Aunor will receive lifetime achievement awards.
The best news so far is that Wim Wenders' Pina will be the opening film. Pina is Germany's submission to the Best Foreign Language category of the Academy Awards. The film is a documentary about the great German choreographer Pina Bausch. What's laudable about this film is its impressive use of 3D technology. So for the first time ever, Cinemanila will have the opening film in glorious 3D.
I'll let you know once Cinemanila releases the official lineup. For the meantime, here is the trailer of Pina.
