We’re only halfway through the year and Philippine cinema proves to be flourishing vigorously, having Pinoy actors and films gain recognition from around the world, win after win.
Just recently, Cinema One Originals Film Festival was lauded at the 2016 Quill Awards for the “Cinema One Originals 2014: Intense” promo campaign on its 10th anniversary celebration.
Cinema One Originals has been spearheading the production of films that fully showcase the artistry, creativity, and talent of Pinoy filmmakers. Alongside the full-length films made by today’s most creative Filipino directors, the film festival also features innovative short films, restored Pinoy classics, and new works by globally renowned masters.
Cinema One Channel Head Ronald Arguelles said that the 10th edition of the Cinema One Originals was bigger, bolder and better compared to the previous Cinema One Originals film festivals, hence the theme, “Intense.” The festival started in 2005 but the tenth year was the most memorable of the bunch, as “That Thing Called Tadhana” by Antoinette Jadaone made it to theaters nationwide, with 133 million pesos revenue of ticket sales in four weeks – making it the most successful independent film release in 2014.
The “Cinema One Originals 2014: InTENse” won an Award of Excellence under Division 1: Communication Management, Category 7: Marketing, Advertising, and Brand Communication for its overall Marketing and Promotions campaign at the 2015 Philippine Quill Awards held at the Marriott Grand Ballroom.
ABS-CBN Corporation bagged a total of 12 recognitions including the Cinema One entry, making it the most awarded media and entertainment company at the 14th Philippine Quill Awards held at Marriott Grand Ballroom in Pasay City.
The Philippine Quill Awards is the country’s most prestigious awards program in the field of business communications given every year by the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC).
