Vilma Santos-starrer Ekstra nominated at 2015 New York Festivals
It is the only Filipino film in the festival.
(SPOT.ph) Director Jeffrey Jeturian’s Ekstra has been nominated in the prestigious 2015 New York Festivals World's Best TV & Films competition set on April 14. The film, which stars Vilma Santos, is a closer look at the under-appreciated bit players (or extras) of the movie industry. The movie also features cameo appearances from Cherie Gil, Piolo Pascual, and Marian Rivera.
Ekstra will be competing against 50 other countries for the Best Feature Film category. It was also an entry for the Director’s Showcase during Cinemalaya 2013: Cinesthesia, and emerged as a top grosser at the box office.
