The big hotels always get the biggest bookings. Tons of multinational companies already book their parties months beforehand, and, don’t forget the influx of wedding bookings during December too. (Filipinos think a wedding is a great family reunion time, hence, a December wedding is very common.) For this article, we will give you our top 5 recommendations for small corporate parties. If you belong to a company or a department that has less than 100 people only, here are a few gems for you: K1 Family KTV and Spa It doesn’t matter if you only have 5 employees or 40. K1 has nice, modern KTV (karaoke) rooms, and has great food and service. What’s more, the venues are very versatile too. One time, we handled a team building event here. The other, a Bingo game. One time, we also had a bridal shower there. K1 is great for small parties because of the privacy their KTV rooms provide, while having contemporary facilities, and a wide food and alcohol selection.

Davao Events: 61 films featured in 12th Mindanao Film Festival

About 58 short films and three full-length films and documentaries will be screened during the 12th Mindanao Film Festival which will be held this December 7 to 13 at Gaisano Mall Cinema 6.

Baboy Halas, which tells the story of a Matigsalug hunter and his family living in the forest of Marilog, received the Jury Prize given by NETPAC (Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema) and Best Artistic Contribution for Cinematography which was awarded during this year’s QCinema International Film Festival held in Quezon City. The various films entered in the Mindanao Film Festival (MFF)have come from different localities across Mindanao notably Davao City, Nabunturan in Compostela Valley, General Santos, Cagayan de Oro, Iligan, and Zamboanga City. The festival carries the theme “Cinema of Change” which highlights the films as tools for awareness and subsequent transformation. This year’s film screenings are thematic in nature as they will be blocked according to a certain theme rather than the previous geographical and school-based groupings. Shorts in the “Films from Nabifilmex” include Sherador, Asay, Warak, Yagapanaw, Pamugas, Makaakar, Bahandini Lola, Belo and Panggaw. These films were created by Comvalenyo filmmakers...
