Cinemalaya 2012 Awards Night Photos and Highlights

The Cinemalaya Film Festival 2012 ended last Sunday with the awards night. I can say that this year’s line-up is just as good as last year (or even better!). When you ask the moviegoers who were able to watch the films, they have different answers on which among the competing films are their top three favorites. I was able to watch only a few films this year.

Despite the unstable weather, the Cinemalaya Awards Night pushed through at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. I went straight to CCP from Trinoma with Enrico and as expected, the awards night started late. I’m just happy that in the lobby area, Eddie Garcia was there talking to the fans and entertains everyone who were asking for photo ops and autographs. Iba ka talaga, Manoy! 😀

Instead of 6:30, the show started at past 8PM. Ciara Sotto did a short presentation about indie film movie fans.
