I love watching Filipino independent films because the filmmakers show issues that Filipinos face in the Philippines and in other parts of the world.
It's always been my dream to make documentaries about the Philippines. Unfortunately, I live in Canada. But I'll find a way. I'll find a way to make a documentary or film that shows a different side of the Philippines. For now, I'm happy watching Filipino indie films who continue to inspire me to make my own films.
The videos below are some of the films at this year's film festival.
Transit - Directed by Hannah Espia
Sana Dati - Directed by Jerrold Tarog
In the meantime, I can always watch Filipino indie films on the Internet. The next time I visit the Philippines, I'll make sure that it's during the Cinemalaya film festival.
