September 12 ------ Kuwaresma, the horror film starring Sharon Cuneta and John Arcilla, is set to hold its world premiere in several film festivals this year, including the prestigious Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) in Japan and Oslo International Film Festival (OIFF) in Norway. The TIFF is scheduled to kick off on October 29 and will continue until November 5, while OIFF will run from November 16 to 27.

The Erik Matti movie will also be shown in /slash film festival – Austria’s leading festival for fantastic films, with genres spanning from horror and science-fiction to fantasy and animation – which will run from September 19 to 29.

The Pinoy flick will end its series of world premiere in Buenos Aires Rojo Sangre (BARS), an international film festival with a similar theme, which is set to kick off on November 28 and will run until December 8. Produced by Reality Entertainment and Globe Studios, the film’s official synopsis goes: “A family is haunted by what appears to be the ghost of their youngest daughter.”
