Promoting and championing Filipino talents, Ayala Malls Cinemas hosts for the 3rd time entries that will compete in Cinemalaya Festival on its 9th year themed “Cinemalaya Cinesthesia.”

Ayala Malls Cinemas’ first collaboration with Cinemalaya back in July 2011 opened its Greenbelt 3 screens to the entries, paving easy access for the festival’s followers within the metro. Ayala Malls Cinemas solidified its support to the festival by adding Trinoma screens as an additional venue on its 2nd year of partnership with Cinemalaya in 2012.

Now on its 3rd year of collaboration with Cinemalaya, Ayala Malls Cinemas opens its Alabang Town Center screens for this year’s exciting and multihued film entries. With this latest development, Ayala Malls Cinemas is set to pay tribute to the competing films on its opening ceremony at Alabang Town Center on July 27 featuring Jazz In Love by Babyruth Villarama-Gutierrez.

"The movie is about a young man from Davao whose dream wedding is within reach: his boyfriend of 11 months has proposed. Because no law allows him to get married in the Philippines, he must fly to Germany, his boyfriend’s home country, and tie the knot there. One of the things that stand in his way is his inability to speak Deutsch, and to address that he must temporarily relocate to Manila for language lessons. Meanwhile, his parents remain completely unaware of the radical changes that his life is about to undergo.

Included in this year’s full length New Breed category lineup are: Babagwa (Spider) by Jason Paul Laxamana, Debosyon by Alvin Yapan, Instant Mommy by Leo Abaya, Nuwebe by Joseph Israel Laban, Purok 7 by Carlo Obispo, Quick Change by Eduardo Roy Jr., Rekorder by Mikhail Red, The Diplomat Hotel by Christopher Ad Castillo, Transit by Hannah Espia and David F. by Manny Palo.

For the Directors’ Showcase, features include Amor y Muerte by Ces Evangelista, Ekstra (The Bit Player) by Jeffrey Jeturian, Porno by Adolfo B. Alix, Jr., Sana Dati by Jerrold Tarog and Liars by Gil M. Portes.

A full-kaleidoscope of Shorts A and Shorts B entries amps this year’s Cinemalaya which runs from 8 minutes to 20 minutes. Shorts A features include Bakaw (Little Thief) by Ron Segismundo, Missing by Zig Dulay, Para Kay Ama (For Grandmother) by Relyn Angkuan Tan, Taya (Let’s Play) by Adi Bontuyan and Tutob by Kisza Marin Campano.
