The Moon Is Rising

September 2 – Naynay was able to score us some tickets to the Visayas premiere night of the Moonrise Filmfest 2008 at Cinema 4 of the Ayala Cinema Cebu. So there we were – me, Te Carms, Naynay and Chen – enjoying delectable cocktails as we surveyed the scene (we felt a bit important that time..hahaha..And check out my ticket no. – 7..nice..hehehe).

Cebu City’s own Carol Ligue, student/director, whose entry “Unos sa Ka-ugmaon” won as best thematic content for global warming, and Jukka Holopainen, CEAE President, even graced the event.
