‘Ang Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa’ is PH’s entry to the Oscars?

The Film Academy of the Philippines has revealed the shortlist of Filipino films vying to become the country’s official entry to the 85th Academy Awards or the 2013 Oscars.
 
 
The seven films in the list which were shown during the period October 2011 to July 2012 have all received an “A” rating from the Cinema Evaluation Board (CEB). If the final selection was shown in 2011, it will be commercially exhibited for at least seven consecutive days this year in order to abide with the Oscar rules.



Leading the shortlist is the Urian Best Picture winner and Cinemalaya entry “Ang Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa” starring Rocco Nacino, Jean Garcia and Paulo Avelino.


Other films in contention for the nomination are the MMFF Best Picture “Manila Kingpin: Asiong Salonga Story” starring Jeorge “E.R.” Estregan and Carla Abellana; the MMFF entry “Segunda Mano” starring Kris Aquino, Dingdong Dantes, and Angelica Panganiban; “A Mother’s Story” starring Pokwang; “The Witness” starring Gwen Zamora; the Brillante Mendoza film “Captive” starring Isabelle Huppert, Mercedes Cabral and Joel Torre; and the Aureus Sotto film “Busong” starring Alessandra de Rossi.

The committee that will choose which film will be the official Philippine entry to the 2013 Oscars is composed of National Artist for Film Eddie Romero, FAP deputy director-general Robert Arevalo, Directors Guild of the Philippines secretary Jose N. Carreon, Philippine Motion Picture Directors’ Association president William Mayo, Production Designers Guild of the Philippines president Manny Morfe, United Film Editors Guild of the Philippines president Jess Navarro, director Elwood Perez and actress/director Gina Alajar.

The Cinemalaya Best Picture “Ang Babae sa Septic Tank” starring comedienne Eugene Domingo is notably missing in the list.
