Animation Category Finalist #LittleLights Joins MMFF 201

Little Lights PosterIt is that time of the year when we, as an ardent movie goer looks forward to the annual Metro Manila Film Festival aka MMFF2015, What excites me more are the animation entries slated for this festival with a special shout out to this interesting entry…”Little Lights”!

“Little Lights” is a story about being born with a lack of light. More importantly, it shows what happens when we, as individuals and as a community, discover what it means to be empowered by our differences and similarities.

A physically weak but strong-minded firefly named Charlie is forced to face his fears. Charlie struggles, not only to overcome his fear of darkness, but also to find his place in his discord-riddled firefly community. But, in spite of his own weaknesses and the indifference of his fellow fireflies, Charlie sets out to become stronger, eventually leading his loved ones to safety when danger arises.

Told using a combination of unique visual and musical artistry, Little Lights aims to inspire others to find their own light and to not be afraid to share it.

“Little Lights” is a passion project that started with two artists, Rivelle Mallari and Regie Espiritu, who envisioned telling a story by combining the art of animation and a musical scoring.

It is exciting to find out that the Animation Category is made available again to be seen in selected theatre this December 17-24, 2015.
