Cinema One Originals Accepting Entries for 2011

Work your way to be one of the ten finalists of Cinema One Originals and win Php1,000,000 grant each to produce your movie. Calling all upcoming screenplay writers, actors and directors, start writing your original stories and submit them on or before January 14, 2011.

Going on it's 6th year in 2011, Cinema One Originals continues to fuel the local film industry as one of the major film festivals in the movie landscape. Next year's digi-fest will be better and bigger as 10 finalists will be chosen to present their movies. This is a sign that we are more aggressive, brave and diverse to present new movies this time.

Here's how to join the competition, taken from the press release:
Interested filmmakers must submit a completed screenplay with a corresponding updated curriculum vitae or resume and application form. The application form is available at the Cinema One office 8th floor of the ELJ Building ABS-CBN along Mother Ignacia St., Quezon City or through online at Cinema One official website.

A representative of each film group must sign the application form to be eligible in the 2011 Cinema One Originals project. The formal announcement of the 10 finalists will be made on March 2011

Since Cinema One Originals started in 2005, the anticipated festival has already produced movies which have won awards locally and internationally namely Confessional, Yanggaw, North Diversion Road, Imburnal, Huling Balyan ng Buhi, Rome & Juliet, Dose, Paano Ko Sasabihin and Wanted:Border. These movies have proven that arthouse/indie makers are now being able to close the gap with commercial filmmakers as each year progresses.

Cinema One Originals is owned and produced by Cinema One, the top movie cable channel in the country which is owned and operated by Creative Programs, Inc (CPI).
