NABUNTURAN, Compostela Valley, July 13 - - Municipal Tourism Council of Nabunturan, Inc. (MTCNI) in partnership with the municipal government of Nabunturan made the first crack on conducting the “Road to Cinema Rehiyon 9: Pre-festival Screening of the Best Films from the Regions” at Gaisano Grand Mall Nabunturan last May 19.

After the launching were a series of film screenings in different municipalities and cities in Davao region to promote the upcoming Cinema Rehiyon 9 in Nabunturan on August 22-2017 with a theme “No Walls, No Ceilings.”

The tour was aimed to pursue the thrust of the thriving film community in the municipality, Nabunturan Independent Film Exhibition (NABIFILMEX), — to bring film appreciation closer to the grassroots level.

With the use of mobile truck from Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) as a screen, Nabunturanons gathered at the entrance area of the mall and watched multi-awarded films from Compostela Valley and other provinces in the country.

Two short films about the open-air cinema in Nabunturan, starring barangay officials and residents of Brgy. Sta. Maria, were also showcased.

The open-air community screening as an alternative to the cinema theatres found in big cities makes the 9th staging of Cinema Rehiyon distinct.

Moreover, Nabunturan is the first municipality that will host this annual national film festival.

Cinema Rehiyon is a flagship program of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) Cinema Committee and is being supported by FDCP.

The pre-festival screening tour final leg will be on July 19, 2017 at Ateneo de Davao University. (Margarett Mae Melendres, LGU Nabunturan)
