Puti The Truth Is Color Blind: Ian Veneracion’s most personal and challenging movie role

“Puti” debuted in 2013 at the First Cine Filipino Film Festival. It was well-received by the festival audience and had impressed many critics with its rich, visual storytelling. The film garnered 3 awards including Best Cinematography, Production and Sound Design. “Puti” was also awarded “Best Debut Film” by the Young Critics Circle. The following year, it was selected for competition at the 32nd Brussels International Festival of Fantastic Film. Despite the critical success, it was not released theatrically but instead did the rounds of school and gallery screenings. Nearly 4 years later, it will finally be given a commercial run under Cine Lokal. Cine Lokal is a program initiated by the Film Developmental Council of the Philippines in partnership with SM Cinema to give select films a second chance at reaching a wider audience. Put will be screened nationwide in 8 SM Cinemas in Metro Manila including Cebu and Iloilo.

I Found My Heart In Santa Fe: Roxanne Barcelo and Will Devaughn in the picturesque island of Santa Fe in Cebu

For the very first time, real-life couple Roxanne Barcelo and Will Devaughn join forces in terms of heart, talent and resources (as co-producers) to make what could be most interesting and heart-warming romantic-comedy of the year.

Titled “I Found My Heart in Santa Fe,” the movie was shot in location in the picturesque island of Santa Fe in Cebu, which is said to be the newest favorite tourist destination of people wanting to bask in the sun and enjoy the cool waters.

Roxanne and Will had been in a relationship for four years now but they have yet to work in a project.  But both have been dreaming of doing a movie together or an interesting TV project where they can show their chemistry as a love team, aside from their acting talent.

That’s why when this project was presented to both of them, Roxanne and Will grabbed the chance.  The indie film, directed by Bona Fajardo, marks the first time for them to collaborate on a film project.  And, it’s a love story, thus making Roxanne and Will all the more excited.
