The National Commission for Culture and the Arts is closing the National Arts Month by putting the spotlight on regional cinema through Cinema Rehiyon.

From Compostela Valley last year, the four-day film festival is celebrating its 10th year here in Manila by presenting film screenings, artists talks, forums, and seminars for free from Feb. 25 to 28. Everything this festival offers is all for the promotion of regional cinema and the weight it contributes to the Philippine cinema by and large.

It’s also a platform for films from different regions of our archipelagic country, which are mostly produced in the local languages and are showing culturally-rooted narratives.

Here’s the schedule for Cinema Rehiyon:

Feb 25

Opening program — 1 p.m. at the EVIA Lifestyle Center in Las Piñas City.

Films screening — Babylon by Cebuano filmmaker Keith Deligero
Dapol tan payawar na Tayug 1931 (The Ashes and Ghosts of Tayug 1931) by Pangasinan-rooted director Christopher Gozum.

Forum — Cinema X: The Future of Philippine Cinema
