last night i was surfing the internet in search for a film screening for any independent films within the area. for me, the best websites to start with will be either in robinsons galleria, because they happen to have a particular cinema house that caters independent films every week or in UP film center, where philippine and international films are being screened every month. you could also signed up to their yahoo groups to get daily or atleast weekly dose infos of the latest films screenings, plays, gigs, launchings etc. of various artists not only inside the university but to other universities, colleges and establishments as well. the next thing that i do is to check for the films synopsis and reviews before i would mark my calendar for it.
craving for more, i would then check for some movie guide websites such as rotten tomatos, imdb. for more movie huntings. aside from the synopsis and reviews, i also try checking for their ratings and other related movies for a specific film. sometimes i also check for the listings of a specific actors, actresses, script writers or directors that i like and check there movies out then, i make a list of the films that i am interested with. after that the real fun begins, going to quiapo.
but there is one mortal rule that i always consider whenever i buy pirated dvds, never buy pirated local movies. if you must, try purchasing one either through odyssey or video city. its the least thing that you could do for your country.
