#AnongTinginMo: C1 Originals back for its 12th year
Twelve years since it was born, the Cinema One Originals Film Festival continues to expand as it brings 10 new full-length films made by some of the best and most notable Filipino filmmakers of today.
This year, the competing films will be screened in more theatres from all over the Metro, thus reaching a wider audience – not only those who are into the indie filmmaking industry, but also those who want to discover the other side of the Filipino films. C1 Originals will also be bringing some of the best of the recent years’ C1 Originals, as well as ones from the World Cinema.
The 12th Cinema One Originals Film Festival will be running from November 14-22 and will be screened in selected cinemas. Here are the films which will be competing this year:
