Filipinos have such rich and colorful culture that is best experienced first-hand, but since this is not possible due to the Covid-19 pandemic, TFC in partnership with Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival and Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) brings them a glimpse of it through the films featured in the “Cinemalaya 2020.”

More than 80 films featured are now available to the viewers overseas via TFC Online, which Cinemalaya Competition and Monitoring Chairperson Jose Javier Reyes believes will appeal even to the second-generation Filipinos or those who were born and raised abroad.


“For the second generation, this is an insight into the Filipino culture, a culture which they miss. For the homesick, it gives you a glimpse of how it was back home and the way Filipinos are thinking,” Javier explained.

In this year’s Main Competition Short Films, bagging the most award is the film “Tokwifi” that took home the Best Film and NETPAC Jury Prize. It is a story about a 1950s mestiza star, trapped inside a television that fell from the sky – dreams up a romantic romp with a Bontok Igorot man who does not know how to kiss.

While Martika Ramirez Escobar won as Best Director for the film “Living Things,” which tells the story of Kints who wakes up and discovers that her decade-long lover Charles has turned into a cardboard standee of himself.

Winning the Best Screenplay is Hubert Tibi for the film “Pabasa Kan Pasyon,” set during the Lenten season, a Bicolano family uses their mother’s faith to make ends meet.

While the Audience Choice Award went to the film “Quing Lalam Ning Aldo” (Under the Sun) which is about a transgender Sampaguita farmer who decided to renovate their neglected kitchen as soon as she heard that her son is going home.

Also part of the Main Competition Short Films are “Ang Gasgas na Plaka ni Lolo Bert” (The Broken Vinyl Record) which is about a closeted gay man in his 60s who has been living with HIV for 10 years; “Excuse Me, Miss, Miss, Miss” which puts the spotlight on the plight of contractual workers in the Philippines; the horror film “Fatigued” where the character must wake up before the nightmare turns into reality; “Utwas” which features the life if Toto and how he discovers a lot of things about the ocean while learning to dive and fish; and “The Slums” which is a documentary on the life of a poor family as they try to cope with the loss of their TV.

Do not also miss the films under the Exhibition Indie-Nation shorts, Gawad Alternatibo Para sa Pelikula at Video, and Retrospective Full-Length films categories, plus the virtual events and classes of “Cinemalaya 2020.”

Two best friends who are victims of the same circumstance will become bitter rivals as they fight for what they believe they rightfully own in the upcoming ABS-CBN TV series “Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin,” which will be available outside the Philippines via TFC starting August 17.

The series features a grand ensemble of a cast led by Jodi Sta. Maria and Iza Calzado with Sam Milby and the Philippines’ Diamond Star Maricel Soriano. 


Get to know Marissa (Jodi) and Ellice (Iza), best friends who hail from different worlds: Ellice is from an influential family and lives a fancy life, while Marissa is a simple lass living with her mother Lucing (Maricel).

The two are inseparable until one night, a gruesome crime changes their destinies --- Ellice accidentally kills the son of a powerful politician who attempts to rape her, and Marissa takes the blame as Ellice’s father offered her money and a promise that she is not to spend a day in jail.

However, none of the promises is granted and Marissa is forced to suffer in jail for years. Not aware of her best friend’s agonizing fate, Ellice lives her life in the U.S. and meets Gabriel (Sam), the man she later marries.

As Ellice and Gabriel go back to the Philippines to start anew, she meets Marissa, but the best friend she used to know is long gone as Marissa vows to take everything Ellice has--money, possessions, and even her husband--and make her suffer just like how she did.

Where will Marissa’s grit for vengeance leads them to? How will Ellice fight for Gabriel if he falls for Marissa and her cunning plans?

"Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin" is under the direction of F.M. Reyes and Avel Sunpongco and is produced by JRB Creative Production.

Don’t miss “Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin,” as it starts airing on August 17 on TFC cable and satellite, and TFC Online and TFC IPTV.
