Here's Your First Look at the New Indie Films Hitting Cinemas in October

( It's been a great year for Pinoy films, with the likes of Citizen Jake, BuyBust, and more recently Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral hitting theaters. But the year isn't over yet, and fans are still in for a couple more quality films coming their way—like the entries of the 2018 Cinema One Originals Festival. There are nine new indie films hitting selected cinemas, including ;the Power Plant cinemas at Rockwell and Santolan Town Plaza, TriNoma, Glorietta 4, and Gateway. Moviegoers still have a bit of waiting to do before the 10-day festival, but the festival's omnibus trailer is sure to keep them in check.


One of the entries of the 2018 Cinema One Originals Festival is Keith Deligero's sociopolitical A Short History of Few Bad ThingsDeligero previously won Best Director at the 2016 Cinema One Originals Festival for his work on Lily. The entries also include Raynier Brizuela's superhero film with a twist entitled Asuang, Charliebebs Gohetia's comedy Bagyong Bheverlynn, and Joseph Abello's sports thriller Double Twisting Double Back, which also talks about sex addiction.

There's also Whammy Alcazaren's Fisting (Never Tear Us Apart)which puts together espionage and folklore, Bobby Bonifacio's supernatural horror flick Hospicio, and Rod Singh's Mamu and a Mother Too, which is about a transgender woman becoming a surrogate mother. Rounding up the entries are Carl Papa's animated film Paglisan and John Lapus' Pang MMK, which is based on an episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya in 1999.

Aside from the nine entries, there will also be screenings of restored Filipino films, classic films from around the world, short films, and the best movies from 2017.
