Bagong Agos : A pinoy indie filmfest at Robinson’s Galleria

Because it’s terribly hard to find information on the net about this little Filipino indie filmfest, I will share the film schedule with all the indie film buffs who view my blog (yes, all three of you). For brevity’s sake (and because I’m lazy), the films will be showing at the set times of 11AM, 1:30PM, 4PM, 6:30PM, and 9PM, and I will list the movies accordingly.

I’ll be trying to catch as many of the 6:30 showings as I can this week, since I get off work around 4:30, giving me just enough time to get to galleria to buy a ticket and a snack/dinner. So if you see a hug motherfucker with a Burger King or KFC bag sipping ona coke, munching on fries plugged into his mp3 player, it’s probably me. Tap me on the shoulder and strike up a conversation, because I’d be thrilled if someone who reads this blog actually saw this post and decided to go check out an indie movie because of it.

PS: Click the link for a couple of reviews to see what the films are like.  They aren’t the best written reviews mind you, but they should give you a general idea.
