MANILA, Philippines - With the success of past Cinema One Originals film festivals, Cinema One is again calling on all interested up-and-coming and veteran filmmakers and screenplay writers to submit their entries for this year’s edition.

Cinema One requires the following: A full narrative feature screenplay and sequence outline; filmmaker’s updated curriculum vitae or bio data and importantly, his or her filmography; description of the production team; signed entry forms; the entry form could be downloaded or printed from its Facebook account; and portfolio of previous works (DVD format).

The deadline of submission of entries will be on Jan. 16, with cut-off time at 11:59 p.m. Any filmmaker or group of filmmakers could submit more than one entry. However, no emailed entries will be accepted, therefore they must be personally submitted to Cinema One office, 8th floor, ELJ Communications Center Building, ABS-CBN Compound, Mother Ignacia St., Quezon City, 1100.

Cinema One Originals is the highly anticipated annual film festival of movie cable channel Cinema One. Since its inception in 2005, Cinema One Originals instantly rose to popularity being a venue to introduce not only new but world-class talents in Philippine Cinema. Relatively unknown actors, writers and directors rose to prominence and over the years brought in a new breed of talents whose ideas, specifically storylines are brave, out-of-the-box and diverse.

Films like Yanggaw, Rome and Juliet, Dose, Imburnal, Huling Balyang ng Buhi, Damgo ni Eleuteria Kirschbaum, Ka Oryang, Six Degress of Separation from Lilia Cuntapay received acclaim in other award-giving bodies. They were also exhibited or competed in various film festivals abroad.

This encourages even more Filipinos to tell their stories via the silver screen for the world to watch. Seven winning entries this year will be given a budget of P1M to produce the film. And the three most commercial and distributable film concepts and screenplays will be given P2M each for their movie productions.

Cinema One is under the Creative Programs Incorporated (CPI). For details, log on to http://www.facebook.com/pages/Cinema-One-Origi-nals/193194883486.
