EKSTRA goes mainstream this August 14

Star Cinema is proud to present the a movie that gives importance to every human being, may it be big or small. but in their context of show business, this film honors the little people that give deeper meaning of what we see on the big screen. EKSTRA (The Bit Player) will be showing in the mainstream cinemas nationwide starting August 14 2013.
the film, starred by the Star for All Seasons, Vilma Santos, plays the title role and happy to have bagged the major award in lead acting. awarded by the Cinemalaya jury of the recent-concluded Cinemalaya Festival at the CCP. among other awards are:

  • Audience Choice Award, Directors' Showcase: "Ekstra" by Jeffrey Jeturian
  • Best Screenplay - Zig Dulay, Antoinette Jadaone and Jeffrey Jeturian, "Ekstra"
  • Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role - Ruby Ruiz, "Ekstra"
  • Best Performance by a Lead Actress - Vilma Santos, "Ekstra"
  • Special Jury Prize - "Ekstra"
  • Netpac (Network for Promotion of Asian Cinema) Special Award - "Ekstra"
the movie was a bit challenging for all since as we've known Vilma Santos to portray lead roles, it was hard for them to make her on the level of the other bit players, de-glamorizing her into the role of Loida Malabanan. on the other hand, the bit players whom she worked with were even controlling themselves not to be starstruck with the presence of their Ate Vi. there are also some bit instances that they found the humility of Vilma Santos, a reason that everyone loves her, in front and at the back of the camera.
the movie teaches everyone, as quoting Vilma Santos, "to love what you do and do it good." it also serves as inspiration for everyone that every person around contributes in the being of an individual.
