Cinemalaya X Book launch on August 9

 Press Release:
The Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary with the launching of the book entitled Making Waves: 10 Years of Cinemalaya on August 9, 2014, 5pm at the Silangan Hall of the Cultural Center of the Philippines.

The Cinemalaya X book is a commemorative publication chronicling the history of Cinemalaya and its contributions to Philippine cinema. It features essays by Doreen Yu, Philip Cheah, Lito Zulueta, Bayani San Diego Jr. and Jessica Zafra with various photos of Cinemalaya throughout the years.

Clodualdo del Mundo Jr. is the book’s Editor-in-Chief. Book design Director is Cesar Hernando. Book Design and Layout are by Tom Estrera III.

According to Cinemalaya Foundation president Nestor O. Jardin, the book is a tribute to the Filipino indie filmmaker. “The success of Cinemalaya is undoubtedly due to the 165 filmmakers who for the past ten editions of the competition and festival produced quality films that have broken the boundaries of filmmaking in the country,” Jardin said.

Other special events and new festival features include the announcement of the Gawad Balanghai Award, Cinemalaya Film Forum, Cinemalaya X Lounge at the Bulwagang Juan Luna (CCP Main Gallery), exhibit of the posters of all the Cinemalaya Films from 2005 – 2014 at the Pasilyo Vicente Manansala (CCP Second Floor Hallway), special exhibitions that document the story of Cinemalaya’s first decade, and Cinemalaya X Retrospective.

The achievements of Cinemalaya over the past ten years are summed up in the Festival’s theme: A Decade of Connecting Dimensions. The theme highlights Cinemalaya as a flourishing network of individuals, groups and institutions with a common goal of developing and promoting Filipino independent filmmaking.

Cinemalaya is a project of the Cinemalaya Foundation, Cultural Center of the Philippines and the Ayala Malls Cinemas.  Established in 2005, Cinemalaya is an all-digital film festival and competition that aims to discover, encourage and honor cinematic works of Filipino filmmakers.
