‘Maximo Oliveros’ was Nominated in Indie Oscars

The Philippine campaign for an Oscar nomination in the Best Foreign Language Film category became stronger as the movie “Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros” (RP’s entry for Oscar 2007) was nominated in the Best Foreign Film in the 22nd Independent Spirit Awards, otherwise known as the Oscar equivalent for Independent films.

Raymond Lee, producer of Maximo, acknowledges the Spirit nomination bolsters the country’s chances of being noticed by the mainstream media, both the Golden Globe and the Academy Awards. He also added that ‘Maximo’ has been receiving good notices from US film critics.
