For Cinemalaya X there are very interesting casting choices for the NEW BREED category. Long time TV fans of Nova Villa and former senator Freddie Webb of 80’s sitcom Chika Chika Chicks will see them back in 1st KO SI 3RD. Urian Best Actress winner Angeli Bayani has 2 films in this category as one of the most sought after talents in Cinemalaya: BWAYA and RONDA together with the indie film debut of Aiai Delas Alas in a very serious action packed role for the famous comedienne. K’NA THE DREAMWEAVER is also the first lead role for Mara Lopez Yokohama who also became the Playboy magazine cover this past June. Bembol Roco, RK Bagatsing, Nonie Buencamino are also in the most picturesque film in the fest shot entirely near Lake Sebu in South Cotabato.

FILMMAKER PROFILE:  Giuseppe Bede Magno Sampedro, better known as “GB,” is one of the Philippines’ most prolific directors today. Garnering recognition both among his peers and in the international arena, GB started his career in 2002 – a career that now encompasses major productions in the fields of theater, television, live entertainment and concerts, corporate events and film. With a solid background in theater, where he acquired the discipline to write scripts, direct plays and hone his talent as an actor, GB’s subsequent ventures into TV, live events and film directing have served as a testament to his dynamic vision, youthful energy and technical mastery of whatever medium he undertakes to create in.  His first foray into film directing, the edgy and stylish “Astig” (“Squalor”), earned him both Best Director at the 2009 Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival and Special Mention honors at the Pusan International Film Festival that same year. This film likewise earned him a nomination as Best Director at the prestigious Urian Awards in 2010.
