Mainstream Actors and Directors Dominate Cinemalaya 2010 Awards


Mark Meily's "Donor" was hailed as "Best Film" of the Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival and Competition's newest category, the Directors Showcase, at the event's awards night held on July 18 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
