Day 3: Third World Happy's Industry Screening Day! :)

[May 4, 2011]

This is basically what went down on our third day in Jeonju:

To start our day, we had our buffet breakfast again at Core Hotel's Skylounge Resto :) And of course, I got me some sausages and Yakult bottles again! *Yeah!*


Since Kuya had a prior engagement, Choy and I decided to do some wandering on our own. :) We dropped-by the Geaksa house near the  Cinema Street before heading back to our usual window shopping. I later on found out from Rachel that the Geaksa house was also a tourist attraction in Jeonju. So we already had that crossed out from our list of places to visit.


After going around the Cinema Street, Choy and I decided to spend a few hours at the JIFF guest lounge (where we met Sir Remton for the first time!). Now, the perks of being a JIFF guest is that you get to have your own festival ID. Just flash your ID at the JIFF lounge, and you get in right away. The best part about getting in the lounge was actually the unlimited free drinks. A variety of free beverages were served, as well as some free internet surfing! :) I actually got some Popcorn tea to go, and it really tasted like drinking buttered popcorn, only in its liquid form. But if I were to go back and get another drink, I'd stick to some coke! But the tea wasn't that bad though.


After hanging out with Choy at the Jeonju International Film Festival Lounge, we decided to head back to the Megabox area to meet Kuya. Much to our surprise, a group of Belly-dancing girls started performing for the crowd.


We were also able to get free tickets for the screening of Damgo ni Eleuteria. But we opted to eat out for lunch instead of catching the last show (went out for some Dasarang chicken and pizza again!!!). Anyway, our third day in Jeonju was also Third World Happy's Industry Screening Day. You can also read more about our indie film, THIRD WORLD HAPPY on this link. The film also featured two of the Philippines best actors -- Sam Milby and Jodi Sta. Maria.

Now, only a couple of films were selected for this particular day, and Third World Happy by EJ Salcedo was fortunate to be one of them. These film selections were basically shown to the 'industry people' (who came from different parts of the world) -- the ones who will be buying the film/s that they think their countrymen would want to watch. And since Cinema One Orginals held the rights to kuya's film, we no longer had word whether his was purchased. But of course, we were grateful enough to be even shown internationally. Much more grateful to hear a lot of great feedbacks from movie-watchers as well.

By the way, here's a video clip of our TWH film, Enjoy!


Anyway, a more touristy piece on the next post!

  13. I wonder if Jeonju is similar to Gyeongju, the former capital in the southern part of Korea? What are the other points of interest in that city aside from the JIFF?

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'll have to google that.. as for POI, well.. the famous Hanok Village is in Jeonju. That's by far the most touristy spot for me when I was there.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I looked it up and they are different.  They just sound alike, but are cities in different provinces.  I recommend to visit Gyeongju if you like historical places.  They have hills there which are actually tombs of their ancient royalty.  They call it "museum without walls."  It is also a summer resort city, warmer than Seoul.

  16. Good info! Thanks for sharing that. =) And would love to check out Gyeongju should I go back to Korea. Those hills look interesting..

  17. I am interested with the Gaeksa. Form what I knew, it is a guest house but used to be part of the country's government office where some important rituals were also held. It is amazing how a 1471 structure got preserved for the later generation to visit and reminisce its history.

    Good luck on your upcoming travels.

    ReplyDelete
  18. You're right! I've also read that the Gaeksa House "was once part of the provincial government office complex used to accommodate government officials and envoys." Quite an interesting part of Jeonju's history. =)

  26. This is cool! another quality Indie Film.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ang cucute naman ng mga dancers...curly hair with super red dress...tapos super kimbot...galing!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hi itin! Damgo ni Eleuteria was actually directed by a Cebuano filmmaker -- Remton Siega Zuasol. We were told that the whole film had no cuts, and was only shot once. That was how flawless and brilliant it was! I was actually overwhelmed when I met him in Korea. =)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh, were you referring to the red, round stuff inside the bowl? Those were cherry tomatoes, Ms. Chrisair. =)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hopefully, CinemaOne releases a DVD copy of it real soon. It's really a must-see *no bias!* =P And yes, the girls were super cute!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thank You, Sir! =)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hehehe, true Sir Enzo! I should have taken a video of them while they were dancing.. can't remember why I didn't!=P

  33. Hello there!
    I appreciate your comment on my post.
    I've been here and nice to be here once again. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. that Vita Yougi is just so much resembling our yakult. They must've had a very rich culture in there. thanks for the share. 

    ReplyDelete
  35. interesting movie, third world happy... pero ung clip still left you asking yourself.. ano daw ulit un? love story? mag papari sya? emotional detachment? magpapari sya? hehe interesting!

    love the belly dancers! 

    ReplyDelete
  36. Awww.. thanks so much Ms. Marri! Always love reading your posts about your kids. =)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I think that was Yakult, as it also tasted similar to ours. And they really do have a rich culture. Friendly people too if I may add. =)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ay hindi po siya mag-papari or nagiisip maging pari. =) Sam Milby was merely contemplating on what he really needs to do for his life. That's if he'll heed the advice of his "kuya" to really start living his dreams. =)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm looking forward to watch that Indie Film. ^_^

  40. Thanks Sir Mark! Hopefully Cinema One releases a DVD copy of TWH soon. :)
