MANILA, Philippines —  There’s no stopping Cine Europa to be held this year, as the annual film festival goes online for its 23rd edition.

Cine Europa 23 will feature 19 films from 20 European Union-member countries, and will be accessible through, the European Union delegation of the Philippines said in a statement on Tuesday.

This year’s opening film is the German comic-thriller “Sweethearts,” which tells the story of Mel, a professional criminal and his easily-panicked hostage Fanny.

According to the first counselor of the EU delegation to the Philippines Rafael de Bustamante, the film festival aims “at exposing the Filipino public to films which rarely make it  to the  commercial theaters.”

He added: “The celebration of the cultural partnership between the EU and the Philippines continues with Cine Europa which is getting bigger every year.”

“The EU wants to sustain its tradition of providing highly-acclaimed European films to the Filipino moviegoers,” he said.

The 23rd edition of the Cine Europa film festival will run from Oct. 31 to Nov. 29.

Miss Manila wins the internet by keeping it real in Miss Universe Philippines

The search for Miss Universe Philippines 2020 may be over, but some candidates prove that winning is not just about the crown.

A few contestants have become instant viral sensations on social media, thanks to their relatable and authentic responses when it came to the preliminary interview.

Miss Manila Alexandra Abdon was a show stealer as she chatted with the panel candidly, and was honest about the fact that the cold of Baguio City did bother her.

“Pinapatay ko ang aircon kanina, wala palang aircon (I was asking for the aircon to be turned off but it turns out there is no aircon),” she quipped, as seen on a tweet by one @markgeronimo_, Oct. 23.

As she struggled to think of an answer at one point, she requested, “Pwede paki-pause iyong time (Can you pause the timer)?”, as per another post by Twitter user @AntoineRenz on the same day.

Runners-up to being internet queen are Miss Quezon Province Faye Deveza and Miss General Santos Mariel Joyce Pascua.

Deveza drew attention for the way she gave serious responses, after which she would quickly become informal.
