Brillante Mendoza Film Foundation

Brillante Mendoza Film Foundation

Film is a potent medium in the exchange of ideas, information, and experiences, regardless of one’s stature in life. Film does not discriminate; one can live in a Third World or developing country, and still feel the need for art film to enrich his mind, knowledge, dignity, and humanity.

Film is a major form of art, being both visual and aural; therefore it encompasses the ultimate art form, providing the nourishment that the soul and spirit hunger for but which the other art forms cannot lend. In art as in life, one needs to nourish the soul and feed the spirit.

Brillante Mendoza Film Foundation is an organization that merely focus on helping those who want to explore the vast horizons of filmmaking.

Organizers describe it as “quite a family portrait.” This photo call to end all photo calls was organized to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival.

For this “exceptional” photo call, 113 screen luminaries from all over the globe were invited “to pay tribute to the fest”: former Palme d’Or winners (who were seated in the front row, of course), best actor and actress recipients, past and present jury members and renowned guests.

Representing the Philippines is filmmaker Brillante Ma Mendoza, who won best director in Cannes for “Kinatay” in 2009.

Mendoza joined Hollywood/world cinema stars Marion Cotillard, Nicole Kidman, Will Smith, Jessica Chastain, Kirsten Dunst, Charlize Theron, Benicio Del Toro, Elle Fanning, Diego Luna, Gael Garcia Bernal, Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert, Monica Bellucci, Salma Hayek, Shu Qi, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, and acclaimed filmmakers Jane Campion, Pedro Almodovar, Michael Haneke, Bille August, Dario Argento, Costa-Gavras, Oliver Stone, Alfonso Cuaron, Guillermo del Toro and Sofia Coppola.
