Película, organized by the Instituto Cervantes in Manila, is the yearly showcase of the best of Spanish and Latin American cinema in the Philippines. Its first edition was launched in 2002 and, since then, has been bringing the latest and greatest of Hispanic cinema to the Philippines.
Pelicula will be at Greenbelt 3, Cinema 1
I suggest you arrive ATLEAST AN HOUR OR TWO before the screening of your choice film kasi mahaba ang pila. Buy your tickets (P65/per film) ahead of schedule. Weekends are busy. Those who were at CCP for the Cinemalaya know the ordeal.
Extra credits for those watching any of the following recommended films (only 1 film per student may earn credit):
