WINNING awards and recognition for the country (during these
difficult times for the local movie industry) by our independent
filmmakers continues as another Filipino movie won honors in Berlin.

The Berlinfest, many consider, next only to Cannes (France) while
the discriminating insist it is in the Top 5 among the film
festivals of the world.

Over the weekend, we got the good news: Auraeus Solito's Tuli tied

"Auraeus is suwerte," observers agreed. Tuli si based on the FSR
Scriptwriting Contest of Viva Films and was filmed by Auraeus for
Viva in the interiors of Rizal in 2005, starring Desiree del Valle
and Carlo Aquino.
