A walk through the history of Pinoy cinema. (All you need to know about Pinoy cinema)

Philippine cinema is one of the earliest film industries in Asia and one of the most popular forms of entertainment amongst Pinoys. The first film produced by a

national director was in 1919 when the considered “Father of Philippine movies” , José Nepomuceno, produced Dalagang Bukid, which was influenced by  Hollywood.

 

During the inception of the industry, in 1930, films were more experimental; they were considered like a form of art and nationalistic movies were the preferred.  Carmen Concha was the first female director with her Magkaisang Landas and Yamon ng Mahirap. It was WWII who brought a sense of reality to the big screen, establishing war and heroism as central topics, which proved to be a success among the audience.

Welcome to Nollywood

Hollywood is history, Yes, that´s right. The days when the Californian district was the epicentre of the film industry are over. It is not new that the Mumbai´s studios, responsible for Bollywood, took over the L.A production industry long time ago but recently; a new competitor has emerged and seems to continue growing at a very fast pace.

 

Nollywood is the Nigerian film industry that developed during 1990 and 2000 and that has recently been baptised as the second largest industry in the world, after Bollywood.  Despite the short history of this industry, starting in 1960 by the hand of filmmakers Ola Bagolun and Hubert Ogunde, it has experienced a tremendous growth in the last decades.  During the 60,s TV broadcasting was subsided by the government and the censure of most of the international content, triggered local productions and established Lagos as the film Meca.

 

Over the years they have bet for the use of English in favour to the local languages to be able to launch their films in the international market and they have achieved their goal.  The first Nigerian film, which was known internationally, was Olisofia in London, in 2003 and The meeting, has been considered as one the best films of 2013.
