MILAN (AP) – Fashion houses trying to figure out how to reach new eyeballs after the pandemic’s long ordeal have focused around a singular idea: collaborations.

Many do it, in big and small ways. Gucci, which “hacked” Balenciaga last season, is now launching an e-commerce site featuring refurbished vintage Gucci products and capsule collections from young designers. The hatter Borsalino collaborates with the French brand Ami Paris and the equestrian-inspired brand Acheval.

If the fashion industry is going to change, now is the time, insiders say, even if the temptation to revert to old ways is great.

‘Cinema Paradiso’ 4K UHD Blu-Ray Review https://anteospaziocinema.com/cinema-paradiso-4k-uhd-blu-ray-review/ https://anteospaziocinema.com/cinema-paradiso-4k-uhd-blu-ray-review/#respond Fri, 24 Sep 2021 20:00:22 +0000 https://anteospaziocinema.com/cinema-paradiso-4k-uhd-blu-ray-review/ Few things are more powerful in this world than the effect a great movie can have on you.

Few things are more powerful in this world than the effect a great movie can have on you. Cinema is the great emotional manipulator, and it is the one we welcome again and again as often as possible. It’s no surprise that a number of filmmakers have tried to tell their own stories about the power of cinema, but few have been as successful as the 1988 Italian classic. Paradiso Cinema. Rightly described as a love letter to cinema, this drama came out during a period of transition for Italian cinema and helped rekindle the urgency and creativity of this pocket of international cinema. With classic outsider quality behind it, Paradiso Cinema was initially released on more than one occasion with very little fervor before gaining a bump in Cannes and ultimately winning the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. The film mesmerized audiences on its release, but its timeless quality has allowed it to enter the hearts of many others over the past thirty years. It’s the type of story that helps you remember why you love going to the movies.

The whole story is framed through a nostalgic lens; famous director Salvatore Di Vita (Jacques Perrin, Z) receives the news in Rome “today” that an old friend has passed away. While it’s been decades since he returned to his childhood village of Giancaldo, Sicily, he knows he has to pay homage to one of the most influential people in his life. From there, the audience is entitled to a flashback that unfolds slowly and shows his journey from precocious young boy to respected adult. Young Salvatore is played to endearing perfection by Salvatore Cascio, first seen dozing off during church services – in which he fully participates. This kid doesn’t necessarily get bored with religious teachings, he’s just exhausted spending every possible moment at the local cinema, Cinema Paradiso. Alfredo (Philippe Noiret, Topaz) is the good older projectionist who has his hands full with Salvatore. While the exuberant child often sneaks around when not wanted or needed, a part of him truly enjoys passing on his love of cinema to young Salvatore.

Over the years, circumstances change in various dramatic ways and a now teenage Salvatore (Marco Leonardi) becomes more intimately involved in the management of Cinema Paradiso. Salvatore’s father has left his mother (Antonella Attili) a war widow, and the dynamic that develops between Salvatore and Alfredo transcends employer-employee. Despite Father Adelfio’s (Leopoldo Trieste) best attempts to censor moments of physical romance, Salvatore learns a lot about the world through cinema. Nonetheless, Alfredo learned the hard way about the need to live a life outside of the projection booth. Salvatore first tastes love with Elena (Agnese Nano), the daughter of a wealthy banker, but romantic love is not what director Giuseppe Tornatore is most obsessed with. This film is bursting with love for life in all of its complexities. Salvatore was raised with an entangled mind in the film, but the richness of life cannot be fully transposed on celluloid.

While one of the themes of the picture is living a busy life outside of the movie, Paradiso Cinema emphatically explains why people turn to the heartwarming rhythms of cinema so often. The feature offers multigenerational character growth, great romance, tragic loss, breathtaking interactions, stunning locations and much more. It not only shows the emotional impact that a shared experience can have, but how a special relationship can shape your future. Ennio Morricone’s score is one of the great pieces of music that has come out of the cinema in recent decades. The way the imagery dances with her is a thing of beauty. All crescendos to a now emblematic sequence that shows the beauty of cinema and of humanity. The story doesn’t have epic sets, but Tornatore’s direction makes the characters’ minor moments feel like they’re larger than life. Paradiso Cinema is an emotional pleasure for the crowd which simultaneously satisfies like a work of great art.

Video quality

Paradiso Cinema makes its long-awaited debut on 4K UHD Blu-Ray with stunning 2160p / Dolby Vision transfer for theatrical cut that makes the movie look better than ever. It is the result of a 4K restoration overseen by director Giuseppe Tornatore and cinematographer Blasco Giurato. The 4K UHD version also features an accompanying Blu-Ray that sports the much longer Director’s Cut that was previously released by Arrow. The new 4K UHD drive offers notable improvements over the already solid previous Arrow Blu-Ray. The film has a nice amount of natural film grain which can be very thick but very tight and specific. This allows this film to shine and gives a lot of texture and nice detail to the transfer. The image exhibits a miraculous depth that gives this Italian place a more three-dimensional feel than ever. Some of the darker scenes are bulkier when it comes to grain, but overall it’s a very natural experience.

The improvements in contrast and overall clarity are noticeable, especially when looking at the exterior of city buildings or the textures of the costumes. The UHD disc contains very vivid and deep colors even with the shiny Italian frame really dazzling thanks to the cinematography. The white levels are brighter and offer more stability without veering off at flowering. The black levels are deep and allow the image to retain excellent depth and detail in darker environments. Skin tones look natural, and the clarity of the transfer gives you a great deal of facial detail, including some of the sweat from theater patrons fleeing the summer heat. This transfer is a treat for fans of this cinematic love letter. Arrow Academy got him out of the park!

Audio quality

The 4K UHD Blu-Ray disc comes with both a DTS-HD 5.1 main audio track and an LPCM mono track in the original Italian, which handle this material well in different ways. These tracks do not exhibit constant kinetic activity, but they do come to life when it makes sense. Ennio Morricone’s iconic score is used perfectly to set the mood for the story, and this track handles it elegantly throughout the film. There’s never a moment when he threatens to overwhelm competing sounds, and he maintains a good balance to keep the dialogue clear. Environmental sounds such as weather effects and the clamor of the townspeople are rendered well alongside everything else. There do not appear to be any notable cases of age-related wear. Arrow Academy gave this film a perfectly preserved audio presentation that brings the film to life in a thrilling way.

Special features

The first press of the Arrow Video 4K UHD Blu-Ray from Paradiso Cinema includes a booklet containing the essay “Stolen Kisses: Tornatore’s Paradise Cinema” by writer Pasquale Iannone. This essay provides an excellent historical context for the film in Italian cinema as well as an overview of the film’s release and themes of the story. The special characteristics of the disc are as follows:

  • Director’s Cup (2:53:31): The much longer cut of the film is also included in this package as a standard Blu-Ray for those who want the option of watching their favorite version.
  • Audio commentary: Director Giuseppe Tornatore and Italian film expert Millicent Marcus deliver a great commentary trail that enriches your appreciation of the feature film. Marcus is the center of attention here as she delves into the thematic elements of the film, some of the behind-the-scenes elements, the story of the project and much more. Tornatore’s commentary snippets are edited in this track, but it doesn’t take much of the running time.
  • A dream from Sicily: A 55-minute documentary that introduces director Giuseppe Tornatore through interviews with him as well as neat family films, as well as interviews with director Francesco Rosi (Christ stopped at Eboli). There are a lot of clues in what shows the inspiration for the feature.
  • A bear and a mouse in paradise: A featurette of almost 28 minutes which features interviews with Tornatore, Philippe Noiret and an adult Salvatore Cascio. It’s nice to have some personal glimpses of their relationship with the image.
  • The kissing sequence: A seven-minute look at the inspiration behind one of the film’s most famous scenes, plus a look at some of the features featured in the film.
  • 25th Anniversary Trailer: The two-minute trailer is slated for the film’s re-release.
  • Director’s Trailer: The one-and-a-half-minute trailer is provided for the film’s edit by the director.

Final thoughts

Paradiso Cinema is an amazing reminder of why we fell in love with cinema in the first place. This coming-of-age tale has all the happy highs and crushing lows that life has in store for you, but when you come to the end the story surrounds you in utter beauty. Director Giuseppe Tornatore does a truly amazing job putting all the technical elements together to make sure the film is emotionally successful. Arrow Academy has released a 4K UHD Blu-Ray with a stellar A / V layout and a nice assortment of special features. As well as having the Director’s Cut also presented in 4K, fans of the film couldn’t ask for better. Highly recommended

Paradiso Cinema is currently available for purchase on 4K UHD Blu-Ray and Blu-Ray.

Note: The images shown in this review do not reflect the picture quality of 4K UHD Blu-Ray.

She rocked a red velvet ensemble for Italian label Etro’s show on Thursday.

And Bella Thorne stayed red but switched to a striking scarlet mini dress that matched her hair as she headed to a party at Milan Fashion Week later that evening.

The look showcased her toned legs, which culminated in a set of black platform combat boots.

The former Disney star contrasted her sizzling dress with a black tuxedo jacket with peak lapels and sparkling black pearls surrounding them.

She accessorized a glittery silver handbag and wore her bright red braids tied back in a bun with thick wavy locks that hung down to frame her immaculately made-up face.

Earlier in the afternoon, Bella arrived at the Etro show in a stunning red velvet waistcoat and matching pants.

She raised her stature to 5ft 8in with pointed burgundy stiletto heels and she wore her candy-colored hair in thick curls.

Benjamin wore a loose, white patterned shirt with the sleeves rolled up to complement his many tattoos.

On Instagram, the Italian singer and actor shared a sweet photo of the two gently gazing into each other’s eyes as they put their hands on their thighs in a car heading for the show.

He also shared a gorgeous photo of Bella in a crowd, captioned “My wife is on the next level,” though the couple are yet to be married.

The lovers announced their engagement in March, but they revealed their intentionally tacky photos from their engagement photoshoot on Tuesday.

The images, which were taken by famous photographer Ellen von Unwerth, showed Bella in a white wedding dress while Benjamin wore a tuxedo, as if they had already married.

In one photo, the singer poured a flute of champagne into his fiancée’s mouth as she laid her long legs down on a table with their tiered wedding cake.

Bella also put on a revealing display in a pink cropped top and lacy lavender panties as she held up a rose while standing next to a statue.

They got even more intimate in a black and white photo of them kissing as they were scantily clad in the middle of a bubble bath.

International Wedding: Speaking with ET on Tuesday, Benjamin said the two expected to tie the knot in 2022 and wanted two ceremonies, one in Los Angeles and one at Lake Como in Italy;  seen September 10 in LA

International Wedding: Speaking with ET on Tuesday, Benjamin said the two expected to tie the knot in 2022 and wanted two ceremonies, one in Los Angeles and one at Lake Como in Italy; seen September 10 in LA

Speaking with ET on Tuesday, Benjamin said the two expected to tie the knot in 2022, when they could schedule plenty of free time.

“It’s going to be, we think it would be next year, next summer. We hope between June, July, August, ”he shared. “The truth is, we have so much work to do that we want to find the time to enjoy the marriage. We don’t want to rush it.

“We don’t want it to be between jobs and projects because it’s such an important time in our lives because it has to be the best days of our lives. And it’s already stressful to organize a big wedding the way we want to do it, so it’s already enough on our plate, “he added.

Benjamin said they wanted to have two ceremonies, one in Los Angeles and the other at Lake Como in Italy.

“Ben took me over there when we started dating and I said, ‘You know, if we ever get married, we’ll get married here,” said Bella.

The two started their relationship in 2019.

Art imitating life: the duo are not only partners in life, but both are expected to appear in the Italian film Time Is Up

After the trailer was released, Bella wrote on social media, “I’ve never shot a movie before with someone I’m in love with, and I’m so glad I fell in love with you at the screen and off screen a million time has passed. ‘

Saadi Yacef, a revolutionary leader who fought the French regime in Algeria in the 1950s and then sparked – and starred in – “The Battle of Algiers,” Gillo Pontecorvo’s acclaimed 1966 film about the long anti-colonialist struggle, is died September 10. in Algiers, the capital. He was 93 years old.

His daughter Zaphira Yacef, who confirmed the death, said he had suffered from heart problems.

Mr. Yacef became involved in opposition movements when he was still a teenager and in 1954 joined the National Liberation Front, the FLN, the main nationalist organization during the War of Independence. The war lasted from 1954 to 1962, ending with the liberation of the country from France.

He became the organization’s military leader in Algiers in 1956, ordering bombings and other guerrilla attacks until his arrest by French paratroopers the following year in the part of town known as the Kasbah. He was sentenced to death.

“While I was in prison the executions always took place at dawn,” he told the Sunday Herald in Glasgow, Scotland, in 2007, “so when I saw the sun go through the bars from prison, I knew I was going to live another day. . But I was very certain that I would be executed.

Charles de Gaulle, elected President of France in 1958, eventually freed Mr. Yacef. It started a whole new chapter in Mr. Yacef’s life. While in prison, he had written “Souvenirs de la Bataille d’Alger” (“Souvenirs de la Bataille d’Alger”), his account of a particularly violent part of three years of the war.

Once Algeria became independent, the ruling FLN sought to commission a film about the struggle for freedom, with Yacef leading the effort.

“At that time,” he confided to Le Monde in 2004, “everyone swore by Italian neorealism. That’s why I went to Italy to look for a screenwriter and a director for “The Battle of Algiers”.

With a screenplay based on his book, he met Mr. Pontecorvo, who was reportedly considering his own film about the Algerian War, a film he hoped to star Paul Newman as a French paratrooper turned journalist. Mr. Yacef and his supporters rejected the idea, and Mr. Pontecorvo found Mr. Yacef’s script a propagandist, but they kept talking. Mr. Yacef arranged to bring Mr. Pontecorvo and his screenwriter, Franco Solinas, to Algiers for an extended stay so that they could study the revolution, see the places where the fighting took place and meet people who fought. .

The resulting film, shot in Algeria with Mr. Yacef as producer, premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 1966 and caused a sensation for its startling realism. Some scenes, especially the bombings, felt so authentic that the film, when first screened, was preceded by a warning that no news footage had been used.

“There are a few sequences that look very dangerous,” director Steven Soderbergh said in a video for Criterion Collection when a new version of the film was released in 2004. “I don’t know if you could them. do now. “

Mr. Pontecorvo, who died in 2006, used almost exclusively non-actors, including Mr. Yacef, who played a character largely inspired by himself.

“Pontecorvo insisted that I appear in the film,” he told Le Monde. “I must have acted in the films moments that I had lived seven years before. The war, the prison, the torture, it was all still fresh in my memory.

Saadi Yacef was born on January 20, 1928 in Algiers to Mohamed and Keltoum Yacef, bakers. His schooling was interrupted by World War II when the Allies requisitioned his school to make it a barracks.

After the war, Saadi was also an apprentice baker. He also played football for one of Algeria’s top teams, the Union Sportive de la Médina d’Alger, from 1952 to 1954. By this time, he had also been drawn into the growing anti-colonial movement.

Besides his daughter Zaphira, Mr. Yacef, who resided in Algiers, is survived by his wife, Baya Boudjema Yacef, whom he married in 1965; four other children, Salima, Saida, Omar and Amin; and nine grandchildren.

The revolution that Mr. Yacef further aided in was known for its atrocities on both sides, and Mr. Pontecorvo’s film, which focused on the fighting in Algiers from 1954 to 1957, did not hit the mark.

“Other than Orson Welles, no one before has imitated the appearance of a newsreel so imaginatively,” film critic Stuart Klawans wrote in The New York Times in 2004, “although Welles did ‘pulled the deal only for the’ March of Time ‘segment of’ Citizen Kane ‘, while Mr. Pontecorvo maintained his delusion for 123 minutes.

The film won the Golden Lion in Venice, the festival’s highest award, and in 1967 it was chosen to launch the New York Film Festival. It was nominated for the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film, Screenplay and Director.

The film has been studied over the years by both militant groups like the Black Panthers and the Pentagon. Mr. Yacef, who later in his life served as a senator in the Algerian National Assembly, readily admitted that the orders he had issued had caused many deaths, but he made a distinction between actions committed for the cause. of the liberation and the actions of more recent groups in the export of terrorism. He had a particular contempt for suicide bombings, a tactic his resistance fighters did not employ.

“The fight gave meaning to our lives,” he said in 2007. “We weren’t here to die.

Directed by Joseph W. Smiley and written by Jesse J. Goldberg, “Life Without Soul” is an officially rated 1915 “lost horror film”. The second adaptation of Mary Shelley’s novel and the first feature film starring Frankenstein and the monster, the silent movie was about a doctor who reads Shelley’s novel and dreams of creating a soulless man. Not only would this have been the first “Frankenstein”, but it would have been one of the earliest examples of the “everything was a dream” plot that has now turned into a boring trope.

Produced by Ocean Film Corporation, the film was divided into five parts starring Dr. Victor Frawley discovering the “fluid of life” that allows him to animate the dead. After falling asleep, Frawley’s dream shows him transforming a clay statue into his creation. The monster was known as the Brute Man and was played by English actor Percy Darrell Standing wearing little to no makeup. No square head with a flat top, no neck bolts, just … a dude. It’s honestly scarier to watch the Raw Man, as his human appearance makes his violent rampage all too real.

Canadian writer and Godfather of All Things Frankenstein Pierre Fournier of Frankensteinia noted that the film was shot in multiple locations, with scenes shot in St. Augustine and Jacksonville, Fla., And Dahlonega, Georgia, with scenes additional tours on a steamboat sailing from Savannah to New York. For 1910, that was a pretty ambitious feat, as most films were shot near studios or major locations. Frankensteinia also provides the most comprehensive plot synopsis, stating the following:

The action resumes in Europe, with Frawley, his fiancee, and friends transformed into corresponding characters from the book. As Frankenstein, Frawley uses his elixir to bring a clay statue to life. Shunned by all, the Mountain Monster demands a companion. When Frankenstein renegs on his promise to comply, Creation sets off on a murderous rampage, killing Frankenstein’s younger sister, her friend Henry Clerval, and, on their wedding night, Frankenstein’s fiancee, Elizabeth. More chaos ensues aboard an ocean-going vessel, with the Standing Brute throwing the entire crew overboard. In a climactic showdown, the cliffs of Georgia replace the Grand Canyon, Frawley / Frankenstein traps Creation in a cave and blasts it with dynamite, leaving the indestructible monster trapped underground forever. Frankenstein dies of exhaustion, whereupon Frawley wakes up and quickly destroys his invention.

That’s right, the Frankenstein monster is doing what we wish “Jason Takes Manhattan” to do, and spread terror around the world.

Over the years, Gino D’Acampo has become known as the cheeky and lovable Italian presenter and chef.

He appears regularly on ITV’s This Morning, but he recently landed the role of the Family Fortunes Revival host.

But you might be surprised to learn that Gino has also starred in a Hollywood movie, alongside Ali G and Borat creator Sacha Baron Cohen.

This year he appeared in the coming-of-age American computer animated fantasy film Luca.

The TV chief voices a priest called Eugenio in the film.

Luca takes place in a seaside town on the Italian Riviera and follows a young sea monster called Luca (voiced by Jacob Tremblay) who disguises himself as a human boy on dry land.

Sacha voices Luca’s uncle Ugo Paguro, a sea monster resembling an anglerfish.

Gino initially turned down the opportunity to be a part of the film.

“It was very weird,” Gino told the Pennsylvania Press Agency. “They spoke to me about seven, eight months ago to do this cameo role in this animated film called Luca that Pixar and Disney did.

“At first I said no, I didn’t want to do it because, you know what? It’s not the kind of thing I do. So I thought no, no, no, no, it’s really not for me, blah.

“I didn’t know anything about the movie – that’s the problem,” he continued. “So Disney and Pixar, they sent me the video for the movie and they said ‘Look Gino, look at her and please see what you think’.”

Gino said he watched the movie and then “completely fell in love” with the main character, as well as the location, where he filmed an episode of his cooking series, Gino’s Italian escape.

“So I thought, ‘Wait a second, I change my mind,’ he added.

“It’s filmed somewhere I’ve been, I know that very well, this little boy is just amazing, the story is about friendship and it’s all about Italian cuisine and the way Italians live their life”.

“And so I said, ‘This is it, I’m done, I don’t care, I want to do it.”

The film received a positive reception upon its release.

On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes’ website, the film has a 91% approval rating based on 280 reviews, with an average rating of 7.30 / 10.

The consensus of the website’s critics reads: “Lightweight but imbued with contagious joy, the handsome Luca proves Pixar can play it safe while charming audiences of all ages.”

FDCP columnist and chief of staff David Fabros (second from left) with the winning team of ‘On the Job: The Missing 8’ – the only Asian film in the main competition of the 78th Venice International Film Festival – (from left ) Dondon Monteverde, director Erik Matti and producer Quark Henares.

VENICE, ITALY: In my five years as President of the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP), this was only the first time I attended the Venice International Film Festival, the oldest and one of the most prestigious of its kind. Despite the pandemic, I was fortunate enough to attend this year, in support of “On the Job: The Missing 8”, the only Filipino (and Asian) film in the main competition. I was also there to promote FilmPhilippines incentives to potential international partners and collaborators.

PH Cinema in Venice

The Philippines created a strong presence in the festival not only with “On the Job: The Missing 8” by Erik Matti, but also with other Filipino projects which are making a statement in the industry programs within the festival. .

FilmPhilippines Film Location Incentive Program (FLIP) and partner of Epicmedia Productions, Inc. “Electric Child” by Simon Jaquemet, and “Plan 75” by Chie Hayakawa, a Japan-France-Philippines co-production, were among the projects in development at the Marché of Venice Gap Funding.

Filipino filmmaker Isabel Sandoval, one of the promising filmmakers to watch, also previewed her short film “Shangri-La”, a collaboration with Italian haute couture brand Miu Miu in the Venice Days section.

At the same time, several activities and events organized by the FDCP to highlight the participation of the Philippines and defend Filipino cinema in Venice.

On September 9, at the Venice Production Bridge, the Agency hosted an exclusive panel discussion titled “From the Philippines to the World: The On The Job Franchise and Exploring New Ways to Distribute Content Globally”. Moderated by Venice Film Festival programmer Paolo Bertolin with director Matti and producers Dondon Monteverde and Quark Henares as panelists, the roundtable recounted the journey of the “On the Job” franchise, from its development to its production.

Towards the end of the panel discussion, the FDCP FilmPhilippines video presentation was released to showcase international co-production projects that the Philippines has already supported since the launch of our incentive program.

It was quite surreal to present this for the first time on a world stage. Until the presentation, many people were unaware that the Philippines had incentives that can significantly help filmmakers and workers in their productions.

Some were even shocked to see the many acclaimed international feature films and series we’ve worked with. Director Matti himself was delighted and said many good words to salute the support mechanisms and initiatives put in place by the FDCP to support our Filipino filmmakers.

FDCP also set up a booth at the Venice Production Bridge to promote the FilmPhilippines Incentives and attract more international producers to partner with our Filipino production companies for co-production projects and location shoots.

The Filipino Cinema Cocktail Party, also hosted by FDCP in the evening, ended the fruitful panel on a sweet note, which was attended by many international players to explore a future collaboration to further promote Filipino cinema to the world.

The Philippines represent

Director Matti, actor Dennis Trillo, producers Monteverde and Henares and the rest of the “On The Job: The Missing 8” crew hit the red carpet on September 10, followed by the film’s gala screening in the Sala Grande, where the film received a five-minute standing ovation from the audience. Trillo also received accolades from award-winning actress Cynthia Erivo and Oscar-winning director and main competition jury chairman Bong Joon-ho.

I had the chance to see the film on the big screen and saw how well received it in Venice. It is a great pride to have a Filipino film competing in one of the most prestigious and longest-running film festivals in the world, equivalent to the country participating in the Olympics.

The film, which ran for three years on the team, lasted three hours and 28 minutes. From a world premiere in Venice to HBO Go, every day they dedicated to making the movie was worth it. The music, the casting and the story were beautifully done, and the rendering was truly world class.

Among the highlights of On the Job in Venice was John Arcilla’s historic victory at the Volpi Cup for Best Actor. Arcilla is the first Filipino actor to win the award for best actor in Venice. He delivered his acceptance speech virtually and it was an incredible victory not only for him but for the film industry.

The presence of Filipino cinema has been intensely felt and recognized also due to the immense support provided by the Venice Film Festival with director Alberto Barbera, Venice Film Festival programmer Bertolin, Venice production manager Bridge Pascal Diot.

Set the bar high

I arrived the last three days of the festival. Fortunately, I met the artistic director of the Venice Film Festival, Barbera, despite his busy schedule. During the courtesy call, we discussed future plans and collaborations with La Biennale to further promote Filipino cinema to the world. He is amazed by the talents that we have in our country. Captivated by Matti’s film, he is eager to discover more diverse and groundbreaking stories from the Philippines.

We are grateful that the FDCP was able to support the Philippine delegation on behalf of the national government, and we are also grateful to be joined by Ambassador of the Philippines Domingo Nolasco and his wife Cecile Nolasco, Vice-Consul Flaureen Dacanay and Consul honorary in Venice, Atty. Giorgia de Biasil who personally attended the festival.

We were in the right place and at the right time to intensify the message we want to convey there, and we are making sure that we can offer a space for our Filipino talents and stories to the world.

No stopping now

The success of “On the Job: The Missing 8” really continues to pave the way for more of our own sharing with the world. I believe it is the future. This is what the FDCP tries to stand up for – to make our local films relevant and competitive on a global scale. The film has set the bar high and there is no going back.

We are heading in the right direction. It’s not a perfect race, but what “On the Job” has achieved has proven that it is possible to aim for quality, world-class stories from the Philippines and that they can have a place in it. global industry. To our Filipino filmmakers, you can be assured of the continued support of the FDCP. Let’s continue to raise our standards and introduce innovative ideas and stories.

What a way to celebrate the very first Filipino Film Industry Month. Here are many more firsts for Filipino cinema!
