A film I acted in - NO REGRETS - is now on YouTube in its entirety. It was produced for the 2018 Los Angeles 48 Hour Film Project. And, it premiered as an Official Selection at the Asian World Film Festival in 2018.
With the encouragement of her good friend Sam, Ashley travels back to the past to stop the engagement of her true love.
The film was written (with Michael Kuya) and directed by Rommel Andaya. Executive produced by RAWMIXProductions.
Melissa Jane Rodriguez, Michael Kuya, Tony Garbanzos, Mary Grant, Danni Huang Gadigan, Jeff Gadigan, Lora Bofill and I round out the cast.
These past two weeks, I had the pleasure co-presenting three films at 35th Annual Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival.
But, first, my crew went to the World Premiere of Diana Paragas' "Yellow Rose" which opened the festival. It was the first time in festival history a Filipina American filmmaker's debut film opened the festival. The feature film stars Eva Noblezada, Princess Punzalan, Dale Watson and Lea Salonga. Later, it won the Grand Jury Award for Best Narrative Film while its lead actress won the Breakthrough Performance Award.
The first film I co-presented was the North American Premiere of Mikhail Red's EERIE on May 3rd at the Downtown Independent Theater.
The director could not make it as he was filming "Block Z" in the Philippines. "Eerie" producer Malou Santos was present to introduce the film.
I also co-presented (with Craig Obligacion Wilson) the shorts program that included "The Patients" by Tess Paras and the Academy Award nominated, "Weekends" by Trevor Jimenez.
Though Shiang An Chuang's "Mama Pingpong Social Club" was a bloody good time!
The last film I co-presented (with Annie Nepomuceno) was "Journey To Ifugao" documentary from Nicanor Evangelista Jr.
At the sold-out Closing Night, I went to the World Premiere of Andrea A. Walter's beautiful "Empty By Design" that starred Rhian Ramos (above), Osric Chau, Chris Pang and Dante Basco.
Thank you to Melanie Ramos and Janna Wang for guiding us along the way. And, much thanks to the Executive Director of Visual Communications Francis Cullado for another successful film festival!
Until next year -- for the Centennial Celebration of Philippine Cinema!
I co-emceed last night's REEL Awards in Film and Television along with Lora Bofill presented by the Los Angeles Philippine International Film Festival headed this year by Fe P. Koons.
