Anne Curtis Is STUNNING In Her Chilean Desert Snaps!

Headlines, hot news, and conversation starters on December 29, 2015!

1 Anne Curtis flew to the Atacama Desert in Chile to spend the Christmas holidays with her number one travel buddy, boyfie Erwan Heussaff! You have to see the photos, you guys! The view is spectacular. (We were talking about the desert, but it helps Erwan looks so dreamy.)

 

2 Erik Matti won the Best Director award at the 2015 Metro Manila Film Festival for Honor Thy Father. The awards night, which happened on December 27, Sunday, came a day after the film was disqualified from the Best Picture category due to some technicalities regarding the film's prior screening at the Cinema One Film Festival in November.

Even if Erik was not present during the awards night, a representative read his statement blasting the film festival. Read his lengthy speech below:

"Kahit kailan po hindi ako gumagawa ng pelikula para magka-award. Kung may mga reklamo man ako sa MMFF, hindi 'yun tungkol sa pag-disqualify niyo sa Honor Thy Father for the Best Picture category.

Naglabas na ng statement ang producer namin na si Dondon Monteverde. Sang-ayon ako sa mga sinabi niya doon. Mas malalim kesa diyan ang disappointment ko sa MMFF. Mula sa pagpili niyo sa mga sineng isasali hanggang sa pagkunsinti niyo sa masahol na trato ng ibang sinehan sa ibang pelikula, lalo na ng maliliit na producers, para sa isang die-hard movie fan na gaya ko, hindi ko na halos makilala ang film festival na dati kong hinangaan at nirespeto.

Maraming salamat po sa libreng publicity, at higit sa lahat, sa pagbukas ng pinto para pag-usapan na sa wakas ng filmmakers pati ng moviegoers ang mga hinahangad nilang pagbabago para sa MMFF. Sa lahat naman ng Pilipinong hindi pa rin nagsasawang manood ng mga gawa namin dito, salamat po sa inyo. You deserve better. Kaya tulungan niyo naman kami.

Kaya pa natin baguhin ito. Hindi ako titigil kung hindi kayo titigil. Hindi na ito tungkol sa Honor Thy Father. Buong industriya ng paggawa at panonood ng pelikulang Pilipino ang usapan na 'to. Kaya, salamat na rin sa inyo, MMFF. Binuhay niyo ang pag-asa ko para sa pagbabago. Inaalay namin ni Michiko Yamamoto [screenwriter] ang award na ito para sa pelikulang Pilipino." (ABS-CBN)
