ABS-CBN Film Restoration continuously makes Filipino cinematic classics accessible through various platforms for today’s audiences as it brings forth some of its digitally restored and remastered titles streaming on-demand via Netflix.
Up until the end of 2022, ABS-CBN Film Restoration and its Sagip Pelikula initiative will introduce an array of restored Pinoy films of all genres on Netflix—from drama, romance, comedy, and horror.
The first title introduced is the digitally restored version of the revered 1982 war-drama classic “Oro, Plata, Mata” directed by Peque Gallaga and written by Jose Javier Reyes, starring Sandy Andolong, Liza Lorena, Ronnie Lazaro, Joel Torre, and late Cherie Gil.
More award-winning Filipino classics will make their way to the on-demand streaming platform, among them are Nora Aunor’s cinematic masterpiece “Himala” and one of Dolphy’s iconic films of all time, “Markova: Comfort Gay.”
Viewers can also watch the restored versions of Star Cinema’s all-time romantic hits, such as “One More Chance,” “Now That I Have You,” “Dubai,” and “Hihintayin Kita Sa Langit.”
Comedy fans are also in for a treat with “Ang Cute Ng Ina Mo!” and the Judy Ann Santos-Ryan Agoncillo starrer “Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo,” while thrill-seekers can watch the digitally restored horror blockbuster “Feng Shui.”
Today’s audiences can watch all these remastered classics from ABS-CBN Film Restoration on-demand via Netflix for subscribers in the Philippines and the rest of Southeast Asian territories.
Also, Pinoy viewers can continue watching these restored films on KTX.ph with special pre-show interviews before every screening.
Now in its eleventh year since digitally restoring its first title, Sagip Pelikula continues to remaster films from directors and writers of note for today’s viewers to appreciate. These efforts have earned multiple recognitions from award-giving bodies worldwide, including the prestigious Gold Quill Award given by the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC), Gawad Pedro Bucaneg from Unyon ng mga Manunulat sa Pilipinas (UMPIL), and most recently the Gawad PASADO sa Pagsisinop ng mga De Kalibreng Pelikula distinction from the 23rd Gawad PASADO organized by Pampelikulang Samahan ng mga Dalubguro (PASADO).
