Cine Barangay 2008

The Cinemanila Cinebarangay screenings were held last November 20-22 at the Marikina River Park with subsequent stops at the most populous residential areas in Manila. Participating shorts and documentaries are from the roster of award-winning shorts and features from Dekada Cinemanila.

“Cinebarangay’s idea is to take [to the barangays] select films from Cinemanila and a host of indie films [that have] Pinoy stories. What we really want to do is make these movies accessible to everyone by screenings in public or open places like markets or plazas.” - Cinemanila founder Tikoy Aguiluz on the Inquirer.

Also premiered at Cinemanila's Sine Barangay are two short films directed by former Eraserheads band members Ely Buendia and Marcus Adoro. Plus film workshops by renowned local filmmakers: Raymond Red, Lav Diaz, and Raya Martin.
