Akira Kurosawa Film Fest

I have always been a fan of stage plays and film festivals featuring international artists/directors and even those local indie films (they are called such because they are created by independent film makers, not sensationalized by local network giants) that are usually not given prime tube ad spot. Those that doesn't have the latest 'it boy/girl' in their cast. Those that 'flop' in our local film industry but are given due recognition by international entertainment tycoons. Ah, the ironies in life.

Anyhoo, I am not here to discuss and unravel details and difference of mainstream films and those that are 'indie'. I would like to share that there will be a Kurosawa Film Festival running from September 15 to 19, 2010 at the CCP Dream Theater. Screenings are open to the public and free of charge.
