Starting this Friday and continuing until the 18th, the Doris Duke Theatre at the Honolulu Academy of Arts will present the 1st Annual Filipino Film Festival.

This festival celebrates independent Filipino Cinema by presenting six of the most-celebrated and highly-awarded films in the last couple of years.

The opening night is this Friday and will feature 2008 Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival’s Audience Choice Award winner “100.”  This film chronicles the last three months of a terminally ill woman filling out her Bucket List, doing wht she wants to do and getting closure on her life.

The opening night has already sold out, but the film is showing two more times on Saturday, April 11th at 1pm and 4pm.
