LAST THREE FILMS FOR FAP CITERS’ PREVIEW by fapweb  |  Posted in Articles  |  on Fri, May 22, 2009

Film Academy of the Philippines citers have just two remaining screening days, on Monday and Wednesday next week (May 25 and 27), to view the last three films for possible nomination.

The last three films are Dobol Trobol (APT Entertainment/RVQ Films/M-Zet Films); Shake, Rattle & Roll 10 (Regal Entertainment Inc.); and Ikaw Pa Rin (Viva Films).

The 27th Luna Awards citers had already screened 26 films since they began previewing last April 20 all films rated A or B by the Cinema Evaluation Board of the Film Development Council of the Philippines.

The 26 films already screened were One True Love (Regal Films/GMA Films); One Night Only (Canary Films); Ploning (Panoramanila Pictures); I.T.A.L.Y. (GMA Films/Viva Films); Baler (Viva Films); My Bestfriend’s Girlfriend (Regal Entertainment/GMA Films); Serbis (CenterStage Productions); Iskul Bukol (OctoArts Films); For the First Time (Star Cinema); 100 (Martinez-Rivera Films);

My Only You (Star Cinema); Torotot (Viva Films); Endo (UFO Pictures); My Big Love Star Cinema); Pisay (Seiko Films) Concerto (Solito Arts Productions/Seiko Films); When Love Begins (Star Cinema); Caregiver (Star Cinema/Viva Films); Urduja (Regal Entertainment Inc./APT Entertainment); A Very Special Love (Star Cinema/Viva Films);

Ang Tanging Ina Niyong Lahat (Star Cinema); Magkaibigan (Maverick Films); Paupahan (AD Productions); Dayo (Cutting Edge Productions); Kulam (Regal Entertainment Inc.); and Desperadas 2 (Regal Entertainment Inc.).

The citers are expected to come up with their list of at least 10 nominees in their categories on the last day of screening on Wednesday, May 27. As usual, the film workers will be selecting nominees in their specific line of work—meaning actors will rate actors, directors will rate directors and so forth.

After the citers, the nominators will take over and review the list the citers had come up with. The nominators will trim the list down to the final five (or so) nominees. The voters will then review the films with nominations and vote on the best for the year 2008. Voters, unlike the citers and nominators, will be voting in all categories.
