GMA Artist Center stars make their way to the silver screens as they join several entries to this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival.
One of the Kapuso Network’s prime leading men Alden Richards portrays the young Robin Padilla in the action-packed movie 10,000 Hours. Also in the film is Kapuso star Bela Padilla who learned a lot from Robin about acting. She says, “I worked with him before sa isang show ng GMA-7 but sa 10,000 Hours mas marami akong natutunan sa kanya since ang dami naming sequences na magkakasama.”
Rocco Nacino, one of today’s in-demand actors, topbills the movie about Filipino saint Pedro Calungsod. In a recent interview with him, he shared that it is a great opportunity to play the role of someone who has touched so many lives. “I am just hoping that people will watch our movie and that they will appreciate my portrayal as Saint Pedro Calungsod.”
Joining Rocco in the movie are fast-rising young star Juancho Trivino and child actor Marc Justine Alvarez.
Meanwhile, Sef Cadayona grooves to the big screen as he leads MMFF entry Kaleidoscope World, a hip hop dance movie based on Francis Magalona’s music.
Sef shares how dancing to the music of the Philippines’ Master Rapper is an unforgettable experience. “Sir Francis Magalona will always be remembered. Iba yung songs niya at habang sumasayaw kami sa bawat awit niya, sobra mong mararamdaman yung emotions sa bawat kanta. I hope yung songs niya will also be heard by the future generations,” he shares.
Tween star Barbie Forteza, meanwhile, joins MMFF entry My Little Bossings. Barbie shares that doing the movie together with Vic Sotto, Ryzza Mae Dizon, and Bimby Aquino-Yap is one of her most memorable moments this year. “Sobrang blessing na makatrabaho ko sina Bossing Vic, Ryzza, at Bimby. Ang saya lagi sa shooting kaya excited na rin kaming makapagpasaya at mapanood ng mga tao ang handog namin sa kanila ngayong Pasko.”
The Metro Manila Film Festival entries are now showing in all cinemas nationwide.
