Must Watch: Cinemalaya 2023 Movie Entry “AS IF IT'S TRUE” feat. Khalil Ramos and Ashley Ortega

Idea First Company, the maker of blockbuster and award-winning movies "Die Beautiful", "Barber's Tales," "Khalel 15" among others, brings another big screen masterpiece in Cinemalaya 2023 entry "As If It's True" starring Kapuso stars Khalil Ramos and Ashley Ortega.

The movie is about a fading social media influencer and a struggling musician exploiting each other in a not-so-fake relationship.

Gist: Gemma Watson (Ashley) is a social media influencer/content creator who's burning out from trying to maintain the interest of her followers. She meets James Alonso (Khalil) , a struggling musician suffering from depression. They enter into a relationship with the mutual intent to capitalize on the other. Gemma uses James for content by presenting him as a perfect aspirational romantic partner, while James leeches off Gemma's wealth and connections to further his own music career. But, as time passes, their intentions don't pan out as they expect and a blur forms between real love and exploitation.

Read Director John Rogers statement about the movie:

The story of "As if it's True" started out as a simple premise of a friends-with-benefits kind of situation but through the lens of internet fame and influencer culture. A full-on transactional relationship. The exploration of a romantic relationship being built as a brand. As years when on, how I saw the story constantly changed until I fully imprinted myself into the character of Gemma. She became the embodiment of my insecurities, fears, and hopes. Through her was my own lens of how I saw the relationships I have in my life, especially my parent's rather complicated relationship. When does love become conditional and unconditional? Is unconditional love even practical? Even after writing the story for almost 5 years, I still don't have answers to anything. But, I still love coming back to Gemma's headspace like it's my own diary.

"As If It's True" is showing until August 13 at the PICC Cinema Rizal, Cinema Bonifacio, Cinema Felipe Hall and at Ayala Mall Cinemas Manila Bay, Glorietta, Trinoma, and UP Town Center.

Puregold Launches "CinePanalo Film Festival" That Aims to Produce Inspirational, Uplifting films

Up-and-coming film directors will soon have the chance to showcase their very own “kwentong panalo ng buhay” as part of Puregold’s recently launched, first-ever film festival.

Dubbed CinePanalo Film Festival, the event will be marked by largesse - Puregold is giving away millions worth of production grants to help fund the works of a select group of filmmakers that will participate in it. To date, the festival is arousing immense interest and the application process is well underway to determine who will be part of it.

Vincent Co, President of Puregold Price Club Inc., spoke about the exciting opportunities that await participants. “We want CinePanalo to uplift the spirits of young and gifted filmmakers who are just waiting for a break,” he said. “We hope that the financial grant and the sheer exposure they get will provide an important boost to their aspirations.”

Puregold’s CinePanalo Film Festival is looking for inspirational and heartwarming stories that conform to the festival’s official theme, “Mga kwentong panalo ng buhay.” Applicants whose creations reflect timeless Pinoy values about love, family, and hope will find vigorous support at the upcoming festival.

Festival director Chris Cahilig affirms this as he stresses on the significance of the festival’s theme. “CinePanalo aims to leave audiences with the warm and fuzzy feeling that truly great cinema can inspire,” Cahilig says. “On this note, we look forward to seeing the wonderful stories our local directors will earnestly share with the public.”

Only a select few that will best capture the spirit of the festival’s theme will receive the sought-after grants. Five amateur and professional directors will be given P2,500,000 each to produce a feature film for the festival. Meanwhile, twenty-five student filmmakers will be given P100,000 each to create shorts.

The completed films will be screened at a three-day festival to be held at Gateway Cinemas from March 8 to 10, 2024. The short films will also be posted on Puregold’s official social media pages such as the Puregold Channel on YouTube. These shorts will be featured next to Puregold’s successful retailtainment series such as “GV Boys,” “Ang Babae sa Likod ng Face Mask,” and “Ang Lalaki sa Likod ng Profile”.

People need films that the whole family can enjoy,” Cahilig asserts. “At a time when films marked by violence or worldly desires are increasingly made accessible to more people, the CinePanalo Film Festival’s focus will be on more heartfelt and hope-filled stories.”

The festival was officially launched at a press conference organized by Cinema 76 Film Society last August 8, 2023. Since the announcement of the event dropped, festival officials have been receiving dozens of inquiries from interested filmmakers. An esteemed selection committee will sift through all applications to find the exceptional directors who will make up the festival’s lineup in March.

Interested participants may email to receive the materials needed to apply. All applications and requirements must be emailed back by October 27, 2023. A shortlist of selected directors is expected to drop by November 6, 2023.
