Amidst the great downpour last night, Pelikula/Película: Manila Spanish Film Festival 2016 mounted a successful opening night.
The opening night started with cocktails at 6pm at the ground floor of Ayala Museum. Invited guests hobnobbed with each other while feasting on food especially prepared by Alba and Jamón Ibérico de Cebo by Montaraz. They washed them down with Emperador liquor.
At 730pm, the red carpet was rolled out for the guests who proceeded to Greenbelt 3, Cinema 1 for a short program that featured speeches from Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) Chairman Liza Diño and Instituto Cervantes Manila Director Carlos Madrid Álvarez-Piñer. At 8pm, guests watched the screening of Truman, a film by Cesc Gay. Truman stars Ricardo Darín (Relatos Salvajes)and Javier Cámara (Vivir es Facíl con los Ojos Cerrados), two heavyweights in the Spanish movie world, and is a fitting opening salvo for the Pelikula/Película: Manila Spanish Film Festival 2016.
