The 9th International Silent Film Festival happens on August 27 to 30, 2015 at the Shang-ri La Cineplex. This unique film festival exhibits silent films and invites local and international musicians to provide live scoring.
The Film Development Council of the Philippines provided the film ‘Brides of Sulu‘ as the country’s entry to the festival. It tells the story of two lovers from two different religions, set in (you guessed it!) Sulu. Local band Kjwan will perform the live musical score. ‘Brides of Sulu’ will be screened on August 28, 5 PM, Shang Cineplex Cinema 2.
