“Ploning” is RP’s Entry to the 2009 Oscar

The Indie film “Ploning” starring Judy Ann Santos was selected by the Board of Governors of the Film Academy of the Philippines as the country’s entry to the 2009 Oscars.

Five members of a special committee tasked to select the country’s entry which is headed by National Artist for Film Eddie Romero as chairman narrowed down the possible nominee to two films, Ploning and Caregiver. However, in a meeting last August 20, three members voted for Ploning and two members chose Caregiver.

The six-film short list includes Indie films Tribu, Pisay, Endo and Serbis.

Both Ploning and Caregiver received the highest grade of “A” from the Cinema Evaluation Board this year.
