Eto na ang sinasabi kong baklain ang mundo

Finally, nirelease na rin nila officially. Oh-em-gee. I swear. I’m so loving this.

Sabi nga ni Allyson habang nag-uusap sila ni Mommy Paola sa madilim na bahagi ng pageant sa Bukidnon (in Tagalog):

Allyson: Di ko maintindihan kung bakit dito sa mga probinsya, mahilig sila magpa-MG (Miss Gay) para sa mga first timers.

Mommy Paola: Masarap raw kasi ang first time.

Oo. Eto. Perstyam ito ng TYG kaya masarap (at hihirit akong sana masundan pa, haha). Masarap na masarap, ohyeah. I-access ang press release dito. Opisyal na. TYG competes in the Dragons and Tigers Section sa Vancouver Film Festival. Char!

VANCOUVER — The Vancouver International Film Festival on Thursday unveiled what organizers called the largest slate of East Asian cinema in North America, including world premieres for Li Fifan’s documentary “The Longwang Chronicles” and Zhao Ye’s “Jalainur,” which is set in wintry Manchuria.

The festival, which is set to run Sept. 25-Oct. 10, will screen 73 East Asian films, with 27 international premieres and 18 North American debuts.

The Dragons & Tigers competition for emerging Asian directors includes international premieres for “German + Rain” from Yokohama Satoko and Uchida Nobutero’s “Kaza-Aana” (Japan) and Charliebebs Gohetia’s “The ‘Thank You’ Girls” (Philippines) and North American premieres for Emily Tang’s “Perfect Life” and Gao Wengdong’s “Sweet Food City,” both from China.

This year’s Dragons & Tigers jury includes Ichiayama Shozo, filmmaker Pe-nek Ratanaruang and critic Elisabeth Lequeret.

Vancouver’s 27th installment also has booked an international premiere for the Cuba Gooding Jr. starrer “Linewatch,” from Kevin Bray and Sony Pictures Entertainment, and a world premiere for Spanish director Ivan Noel’s coming-of-age drama “In Your Absence.”
