MANILA, Philippines — John Denver Trending is competing in the ongoing Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) in South Korea. As part of the New Currents line-up, it goes head-to-head with 13 other titles by emerging filmmakers from 10 different countries. It’s the first Filipino film selected for the section after five years. For its 15-year-old lead star Jansen Magpusao, the BIFF marks the farthest trip he has made yet — miles away from his coastal hometown in Pandan, Antique. The newcomer, who plays a cyber-bullied teen in the coming-of-age film, previously told The STAR that he felt nervous over his first time abroad. John Denver Trending director Arden Rod Condez said he was more excited for Jansen than his directorial debut competing at BIFF.

Lopez believed that as long as there are generous people, more children can have a better future. Bantay Bata 163 introduced the Bantay Edukasyon program in 1998 as an aftercare service for rescued children but it has since provided 6,400 scholarships all … [Read more...] about In Photos: ABS-CBN Ball 2019 red carpet
