CEBU the motion picture fund
Fans of Peter Bacho and CEBU! In order to keep the dream alive of turning ‘CEBU’- the novel into the ground-breaking ‘CEBU’ - the film, we need your support for much needed development funds. We have 35% of the filming budget, but need some extra money to help us with travel expenses SF to LA to Manila and to Cebu, to meet with talent, loctation scouting, and take care of the legal documents that are needed in an International film project. CEBU - the novel, won the AMERICAN BOOK AWARD when it was first published, and the screenplay adaption was a finalist at the BEVERLY HILLS FILM FESTIVAL. The film CEBU has the potential to appeal to a world-wide audience. Never before has there ever been a film that tells the story of the people of the Philippines in the mid 20th Century. The time has come to showcase Filipino and Fil/Am talent in the mainstream. It's a family historical drama, a love story, and an action/adventure film, that just must be made. We're a small Independent company, like "The Little Train that Could" , so we apprecitate all the help we can get. Thanks for reading this, supporting , and sharing.
