About this Event

The Manilatown Heritage Foundation, in partnership with FACINE is proud to present Manilatown Movie Time a series of specially programmed Filipino film screenings and community discussions.

Hosted by Carlos Zialcita, Manilatown Movie Time is designed to showcase Philippine and Filipino-American related movies, filmmakers, actors and crews, infusing their art and insight into our vibrant, diverse community through film. Each Manilatown Movie Time screening will also feature the following:

  • A  community discussion led by Co-Programmers Ethnic Studies Professor Oscar Penaranda and Mauro Tumbocon, Founder and Artistic Director of the San Francisco Filipino American Film Festival (FACINE).  
  • A presentation on the importance of Filipino Films in the Filipino-American Community.
  • Future Meet & Greets with Actors, Directors, Cinematographers, and Filipino movie enthusiasts.

Please join us for the official debut of Manilatown Movie Time on Friday, December 20th at 6pm with a repeat screening on Saturday, December 21st at 1pm

Our featured film will be Sonata which is about a Regina Cadena (Cherie Gil), a former opera diva who, following the loss of her voice and the subsequent collapse of her career, goes into a deep depression and self-exile. She gets reinvigorated by a precocious young boy (Carlo Jalandoni) who helps bring back her smile. 

Directed by Peque Gallaga and Lore Reyes, the 2013 film received 5 awards and 23 nominations from various international film festivals. These awards include the 2014 Gawad Urian Award for Best Music given to Ermerzon Tecson, and the 2015 ASEAN International Film Festival Award for Best Actress given to Cherie Gil.

Following the screening on Friday December 20th will be a Panel Discussion led by Oscar Peñaranda and Mauro Tumbocon and featuring special guest Michelle Gallaga, daughter of Director Peque Gallaga.
