Opening night of French Film Festival cancelled » Manila Bulletin Entertainment


It had always been an elegant and much-awaited event, the opening night of the annual French Film Festival in the Philippines.

But last June 8, the red carpet opening night of the 22nd French Film Festival supposed to be held at the Central Square in Bonifacio Global City was cancelled, with regret by the Embassy of France to the Philippines. This was done following the advice of the Embassy’s partners and sponsors for security reasons.

“Due to recent events, we are taking extra safety precautions and refraining from holding large events. We are therefore recommending not to push through with the opening ceremony of the festival on June 8, but to continue with the regular screenings (without an opening event),” it was announced.

However, public screenings up to June 17 at the cinemas of Greenbelt 3 and Bonifacio High Street will push through for the enjoyment of French movie fans.

Derrick is a gentleman but “mahilig din siya magbiro at kung minsan ’di mo alam kung seryoso o totoo na,” said Bea. But in her case, because they’ve been together in many projects, “alam ko na kung kailan siya nagbibiro.” Bea, who plays Anya on “Mulawin Vs. Ravena,” also revealed Derrick is fond of giving her gifts.

 Miguel and Bianca, on the other hand, are adventurous. On Instagram recently, they shared photos of their escapade in Batangas, which included scuba-diving at Dive & Trek Resort and Marine Sanctuary.

Miguel and Bianca play Pagaspas and Lawiswis, respectively, on “Mulawin Vs. Ravena,” aired weeknights after “24 Oras” on GMA Telebabad.
