Cine Totoo is the 1st Philippine International Documentary Film Festival presented by GMA News TV Channel 11. The documentary filmmaking competition was opened to entries from interested filmmakers last December 2013.
Just this August, the 11 documentaries that made it as finalists for the festival were announced. According to Cine Totoo Festival Director, Joseph Laban, the films "each offer a unique and interesting insight into the contemporary Filipino experience."
"We hope to meet the next generation of documentary directors and producers through Cine Totoo. We look forward to powerful stories as well as personal stories, documentaries with a unique point of view beyond what we have been accustomed to seeing locally," says GMA News TV Channel Head Nessa Valdellon.
The selected films will be screened in competition on September 24 to 30 in SM Megamall, SM Manila, and Trinoma Mall Cinemas. Tickets will be priced at P100 per film screening.
