Letter from a Filmmaker


My name is Vince Fesalbon. I'm an American-born Filipino filmmaker living in Seattle, USA. I just rented and watched your "Antonio's Secret" feature. I was extremely impressed! Your screenplay is awesome! There is so much depth and intelligence in your indie film. I look forward to seeing your other films, and hope you continue to pursue writing/directing. I would love to see more Filipino films in American indie theatres, especially films of your quality. I'm proud to see some substantive material being produced in the Philippines!


P.S. I have some of my short films on Youtube if you wanna check them out. I don't have my gay feature on the Internet at this time, however, which played at the 2005 Seattle Gay/Lesbian Film Festival.


Hi Vince,

I am glad to know that you liked the film. I'll be happy to see some of your works especially your gay short films.

There are many other talented writers/ filmmakers that you should try as well. Try to get copies of the works of Aureus Solito, Ronaldo Bertubin and Senedy Que (Dose). I hope you can explore Philippine cinema. We have a lot of cinematic gems in this country.

Unfortunately, I can't be too active in indie cinema since work in this industry isn't exactly financially rewarding.

Hope to hear from you again.
