Matinee idol Xian Lim re-enters the independent cinema scene but not as an actor but a filmmaker, as he revealed on his Instagram post that his entry was accepted in the main competition for the Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival 2019.
Check out his Instagram post below:
The caption reads:
Naalala ko pa noong 2009 nung ginagawa palang namin ni direk Gil Portes ang pelikulang Two Funerals. Ang tanong ko sa kanya, Direk Gil balang araw gusto ko rin po maka gawa ng pelikula tulad nyo. Pwede po ba ako makahingi ng payo sa inyo? Ang sagot nya ABA p******a ang taas agad ng pangarap mo! Walang katapusang pag aaral!…then he pulled me to the side and said, kung ano man yang pangarap mo, ituloy mo. Paghirapan mo.
Thank you Cinemalaya for giving us this opporunity!
No further details have been revealed whether he will also direct and star in the film as synopsis or sequence treatment are the ones being passed for deliberation.
Congratulations, Xian! Looking forward to your works!
