The latest satellite venue of the festival which is Ayala’s Fairview Terraces in Quezon City hosted an opening night featuring “Separados,” a romantic comedy drama by GB Sampedro starring Alfred Vargas, Anjo Yllana, Jason Abalos, Victor Neri, Ricky Davao and Erik Santos. Inspired by true events, “Separados” is about the bittersweet saga of six men who separated from their wives.
