Judy Ann Santos' Entry, 'Kusina', Is The Number One Movie In The Cinemalaya Filmfest Box Office

CONGRATULATIONS to Judy Ann Santos. Her movie, “Kusina”, is the number one box office winner at the current Cinemalaya. Noel Ferrer, one of the producers, says that because of this, “Kusina” will have an additional screening at the CCP Main Theatre on Saturday, August 13, at 12:45 PM.

The film’s success is not surprising as many of her loyal fans have really missed Juday since she gave birth to her daughter Luna. Also, this is the only entry which was well promoted. Writers were invited to visit the set and interview the cast, then they also had a press con and press preview for the movie, which no doubt helped in generating more public interest in “Kusina”.

Number 2 at the Cinemalaya box office is “Pamilya Ordinaryo” with Ronwaldo Martin, number 3 is “I America” with Bela Padilla, and number 4 is “Tuos” with Nora Aunor and Barbie Forteza. You only have until Sunday to watch the entries at the CPP and at Ayala Cinemas like Greenbelt, Trinoma, UP Town Center, Fairview Terraces.
