APT Entertainment teamed up with the Directors’ Guild of the Philippines, Inc. (DGPI) in the film festival dubbed as “Sine Direk.”

The six directors and their corresponding projects are:

Joel Lamangan (Fuchsia)
Soxy Topacio (Ded na si Lolo)
Lore Reyes (Litsonero)
Peque Gallaga (Agaton & Mindy)
Mel Chonglo (Bente)
Maryo J. de los Reyes (Kamoteng Kahoy)

Mainstream stars that are in the said movies are:

Gloria Romero, Eddie Garcia, Robert Arevalo, Armida Siguion-Reyna, Iza Calzado (“Fuchsia”)
Paolo Contis, Michael de Mesa, Maricel Laxa and Karylle (“Litsonero”)
Roderick Paulate, Manilyn Reynes, Gina Alajar, Elizabeth Oropesa, Chanda Romero (“Ded na si Lolo”)
Nash Aguas, Yul Servo, Robert Villar Jr., Sharlene San Pedro (“Kamoteng Kahoy”)
Richard Gomez, Ricky Davao, Jinggoy Estrada, Lani Mercado (“Bente”)

    well this is for NICA. I must say, Filipino Indie films are really great for the number 1 reason that it shows our (Philippine’s) society in an artistic way and it serves as a tool of awakening for us who are blind, if not dead, to what is really going on. ;). make it a habit
