CineFilipino is now on its fourth year! In case you haven’t heard of it, the CineFilipino Film Festival, organized by Cignal Entertainment and Unitel Straight Shooters Media, showcases stories that are worth watching and celebrating. The festival aims to give promising filmmakers a new home to tell their stories and express themselves in ways that people are sure to remember.
I don’t know about you, but I have always come to find that the movies that can be found away from the mainstream collection of films out there are always more in-depth and hit the heart (and the gut) so much more.
While waiting for this year’s lineup of awesome CineFilipino entries, let’s go down memory lane a little bit and take a look back at the best lines from last year’s entries that really hit us hard.
Top 10 Hugot Lines from CineFilipino 2018
From ‘Delia and Sammy’
Ang hirap mong mahalin. Ang hirap mo ding iwanan. – Delia
From ‘The Eternity Between Seconds’
Sam: Natatakot ako. Mas gugustuhin kong mapagod kesa matakot.
Andres: Mas gugustuhin kong matakot kesa mapagod.
Parang lumulutang lang ako sa pagitan ng isang desisyon, isang resolusyon, sa gitna ng pinanggalingan ko at pupuntahan ko. – Andres
Why can’t we just accept that travelling doesn’t magically fix any problems? – Andres
From ‘Mata Tapang’
Magmahal ka nang totoo. Dahil totoo ang pagmamahal. Lagi. Kahit ano pang hugis, itsura, o kulay nito. – Yulo
Ang terorista, kung tao lang yan bakit hindi namamatay. Ang terorismo ay konsepto lang. Parang feelings lang. Hindi nawawawala. – Bangks
Pwede ka pong sumunod, sir. Dalawa naman yung paa niyo. Ano bang pumipigil sa inyo? – Nurse
Akala ko babae ang pinakamatindi kong kaagaw. Yun pala serbisyo. Sana nga babae na lang para pwede kong sabunutan, pwede kong awayin, pwede kong sugurin. Pwede ko ba yun gawin sa trabaho mo? – Alice
Kapag kinakalimutan mo, lalo kang sinusundan. – Yulo
