Filmmakers and the actors from each film entry, special guests, and the media are invited to grace the opening ceremony of the festival.
Sinag Maynila opens the festival with a special screening of REFLECTIONS, the first of the Asian omnibus film series Asian Three-Fold Mirror 2016—a project that brings together Asia’s three globally-acclaimed directors Isao Yukisada (Japan), Sotho Kulikar (Cambodia), and our very own Brillante Ma Mendoza to co-create omnibus films with a common theme.
These works aim to help bring together people in Asia.
The cast is a mix of various talents from Asia featuring Lou Veloso (Philippines/actor), Masahiko Tsugawa (Japan/actor), Masaya Kato (Japan/actor), Sharifa Amani (Malaysia/actress), Masatoshi Nagase (Japan/actor), and Chumvan Sodhachivy (Cambodia/actress).
The 2017 Sinag Maynila Film Festival will be from March 9 to 14 in SM Megamall, SM North EDSA, Glorietta, and Gateway. This year’s categories include Full Length, Short Film, and Documentary.
