Popular website and film experts’ online haven, www.hollywoodreporter.com has in fact acknowledged Cinema One’s significant contribution to the upturn of the Philippine filmmaking industry which has made a strong comeback. In October 2009, well-known online international film critic Patrick Frater published an article titled “Manilla in it’s Moment”, where he wrote that a major influence in the “current boom” of Philippine filmmaking is ABS-CBN’s Cinema One movie cable channel which shows Filipino classics as well as commerical films from the past.
Since Filipino indie cinema has long been in what is described as a “dark tunnel”, the channel has also been noted to help emerging filmmakers through Cinema One Originals. It has also nurtured talents who have gone on to bigger projects and wider audiences and has contributed to closing the gap between commercial filmmaking and the more adventurous arthouse/indie approach.
