The citers for the 25th or silver anniversary version of the Luna Awards of the Film Academy of the Philippines wrapped up their work of reviewing 29 Cinema Evaluation Board-rated films on Friday, June 8.
The Academy citers have gone through 14 screening days, starting on May 7. All in all, 29 films which were rated A or B by the Cinema Evaluation Board in 2006 are eligible for nominations for 13 categories of the Luna awards.
The last films to be screened were: Star Cinema’s You Are the One, UFO’s Sarong Banggi, CM Productions’ Ligalig, Star Cinema’s Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo and FLT Films and Star inema’s Pacquiao the Movie. GMA Films and Viva Films’ Till I Met You was re-screened as technical problems prevented citers to finish the film the first time it was screened.
The citers are expected to submit the cited works and performances by June 15 after which the nominators will view all films which received citations from June 18 to 29 at the boardroom of the Film Academy of the Philippines at the OctoArts building on Panay avenue—the same venue used by the citers.
The nominators will submit their final list of nominees starting on July 2 and the announcement of the nominees will be held on July 6. The voters will then view the nominated films at the University of the Philippines Theater in Diliman, Quezon City, from July 9 to 17.
