Cinemagis is a digital short film festival promulgated by the Xavier Center for Culture and the Arts. It aims to celebrate the film making potentials of Northern Mindanao through a competition. The festival also helps  in collecting donations for the underprivileged communities. Instead of paying in cash as a fee for watching the films, they accept donations such as pad papers, pencils, noodles and the like. (Click here to see more of the details for this year.)

This year, the Artistic Director of Dulaang Atenista, Ryan Lao, together with Mind Bender Films production, joins again with the film entitled “BF”. The screenplay was created by Dennis Flores. It features members of Dulaang Atenista like Franz Lacson, Sheila Cabugsa, Shaun Pilapil, JC Salon with the special participation of Egan Seccion, John Paul Ombao and Megan Hernandez’s dad Mr. Mac Hernandez. I won’t spoil anything about the film. I only saw clips of it while they were shooting them.

“BF” received nominations from most of the categories excluding the Best Sound Editing. I really hope they will win! The awarding ceremonies will be on January 20, 2011 at SM City Cagayan de Oro Atrium.

Here’s the trailer of “BF” from Mind Bender Films’ YouTube channel:



From all the teasers showed tonight, there are a lot of potential mainstream film makers.


See you at the movies! Support all the films. (Click here to see the complete details of the festival.)
