Cinema Rehiyon 6, the five-day National festival of films and filmmakers has concluded last Saturday, February 22. The festival took place in the City of Golden Friendship, and it brought together successful and budding actors and filmmakers alike. Big names such as Rez Cortez, Leo Martinez, Cherie Gil, Ronald Argueles (Cinema One), and Dr. Miguel Rapatan (NCCA National Head for Cinema), have graced the event.
Films from all around the country were shown in SM Cinemas and at the Xavier University Little Theater, including films from the recently concluded Cinemagis 6. Special features, including the digitally restored Eddie Garcia classic, “Ganito Kami Noon, Paano Kayo Ngayon” were shown, which delighted the public with a very old film completely restored to its former glory.
Overall, Cinema Rehiyon 6 has tied Philippine Cinema together in our city. The next Cinema Rehiyon will take place at Cebu.
Kudos to the Cinema Rehiyon team for a job well done, and thank you for coming to Cagayan de Oro! Cinema Rehiyon is truly Tsada Gyud!
