I got annoyed when my french school informed me that our first class is moved to another week, but my mood suddenly changed when a friend of mine told me an interesting news – it’s the 14th French Film Festival at the Shang!

The French filmfest has already started tonight last Friday, and will run until June 14 at the Shang Cineplex 3. This year’s festival features fourteen films which have been presented at the Cannes Film Festival. Local films like Independencia by Raya Martin, Sabongero by Janice Perez and Serbis by this year’s Best Director in Cannes Festival, Brillante Mendoza, are also showcased at this year’s festival.
