PELÍCULA-PELIKULA, the Spanish Film Festival is a 2-week event and known as the biggest Spanish film festival in Asia. It features the best of Spanish and Latin American cinema to the local audience of Manila.

The Festival started the ball rolling last October 5th, with the opening ceremonies at the Ayala Museum in Makati. It will end on the 16th PELÍCULA-PELIKULA is a Spanish Film Festival, an annual event at Greenbelt 3 in Ayala Makati sponsored by Instituto Cervantes.

Pelicula-Pelikula is a blend of the Spanish word “película”, which means film, and its Filipino origin “pelikula”, the cultural ties shared by Spain and the Philippines.

For the duration of the Festival, the audience will be given stubs with which they can rate the movies they have seen. For every five movies, members of the audience qualify to join the raffle where they get a chance to win a round-trip ticket to Spain and other exciting prizes.

Since I want to join the contest and get the chance to win a trip to Spain, I obliged myself to watch a total of 5 films. I watched 3 films on the 6th and 2 more on the 7th. 

The movies I watched were as follows: 

  • Techo y comida  
  • Aqui no ha pasado nada  
  • Perdiendo el norte  
  • A esmorga  
  • Azul y no tan rosa
