The Phoenix Film Festival Melbourne is interested not just in films with potential commercial success but films of artistic merit and scope. The goal is to build a festival that will be on par with Sundance, Cannes, and other major festivals but geared to the truly independent filmmaker, actor, and script writer. Giving them opportunities and opening doors that would not otherwise be open to them.

Ang Walang Kapagurang Paglalakbay ng Pulang Maleta – Official Selection, FACINE 2015

Posted in Uncategorized on October 11, 2015 by cycloneloopfilmprod



Remarkably, sentimental is not the right word to describe the two documentaries included in the program on migrant Filipinos, a marked departure from the common tales of woe and misery that beset Filipinos in other lands, especially the OFW or overseas Filipino workers.

In one, Joni Gutierrez’s TWELVE HUNDRED MILES/Qian Li Zhi Wai, the director is an observer; as foreign student taking his graduate studies in HongKong, his are musings on the temporality of his stay in an unfeeling place, expressing his personal view on the less oft-understood HongKong/Mainland China binary, which through sights and sounds, he finds humorous, though profound.

In the other, Richard Soriano Legaspi‘s ANG WALANG KATAPUSANG PAGLALAKBAY NG PULANG MALETA/L’Instancabile viaggio della valigia rossa [the untiring journey of the red suitcase], the dominant image of the red suitcase evokes the Filipino in incessant haste, life is a continuing journey through airports, trains and cars, hoping to find roots where life becomes better than the one he/she has left: this time, a small village in Bella, Italy where a small close-knit community of Filipino workers has lived for decades.

These two important documentaries will be shown on Saturday, October 24 at 2:30 p.m. at the Roxie Theater. Part of FACINE/22: the 22nd annual filipino international cine festival which runs October 21-24. For full program schedule, see and for advanced tickets purchase,
