The entry (K)AMPON of Quantum Films, which is a Horror Film, will be replaced by the film SUNOD after the former film was disqualified by the MMFF Executive Committee as an official entry for filing its request for change of lead actor beyond the July 30, 2019 deadline.
Section 12 of Rule III of the 2019 MMFF Rules and Regulations provides that in case of disqualification, the vacant slot shall be automatically filled by the next-in-rank of the same film genre.
Per the ranking of the Selection Committee, SUNOD is the horror film next-in-rank to the film (K)AMPON.
SUNOD is produced by TEN17P to be directed by Carlo Ledesma.
Its major casts are Carmina Villarroel, Mylene Dizon, Susan Africa, and Kate Alejandrino.
The next stage of competition in the full length category is via the finished films.
The deadline of finished film submission is at 5:00 PM on September 20. Please be guided accordingly!
Let’s us all make this year’s 45th MMFF truly significant and memorable!
Ang dinig ko nga, yung Block Z (or is it District Z na?) nina Joshua Garcia at Julia Barretto ang mapipili o itong kay Carmina.
Ang isa pang naiisip ko, baka ang horror movie rin ni Robin Padilla na Itit ang papaboran dahil malapit siya kay Senator Bong Go.
Pero wala namang ganoong nagaganap dahil pinahalagahan ang desisyon ng Selection Committee.
Ang abangan na lang natin, kung alin-alin ang apat pang mapipili bilang finished films.
NaSUNOD ang itinakdang alituntunin ng MMFF Executive Committee.
Noon pa man ay tanggap na ni Kris Aquino na hindi matutuloy sa MMFF 2019 ang K(AMPON).
Hopefully, move on na tayo sa usaping ito.
