The 4th .MOV International Film, Music, & Literature Festival will run from September 1 to 6, 2011. This year, .MOV Fest will be taking upon its shoulders the world premiere of the films by directors championed by Alexis Tioseco and Nika Bohinc, such as Lav Diaz, John Torres, Raya Martin, Sherad Anthony Sanchez, and more. It will also include cinematic treats from around Southeast Asia and World Cinema. And, because the 4th .MOV Fest will also be celebrating music and literature, expect activities that feature the best Philippine songwriters and literary figures. This makes .MOV Fest the first ever local festival that will combine all three in one event.
Another thing to look forward to this year’s festival is the staple Silvershorts competition, wherein aspiring filmmakers are encouraged to submit their short films. Previous Silvershorts directors such as Ato Bautista, Quark Henares, Chris Martinez have gone on to become full-fledged, recognized directors both here and abroad. This year’s Jury panel will include Chris Fujiwara (USA/Japan), Kong Rithdee (Thailand), Vanja Kaludjercic (Croatia/France).
The 4th .MOV International Film, Music, & Literature Festival is dedicated to the memory of film critics Alexis Tioseco and Nika Bohinc. The festival will take place in several venues – The Podium Cinemas, Greenbelt 3, Ayala Museum, Fully Booked High Street and Cine Adarna in UP Diliman.
