1st Ko si 3rd: Love in the Time of Retirement

Press Release: 
1st Ko si 3rd, an interestingly kilig offering to the 2014 Cinemalaya Film Festival

Reality of things compels us to live life as it unfolds. We move with the times and work with what's on hand. This is often the way we create the story of our lives. There's a chance to leave a supposed love story behind to settle with the more obvious life offerings, forgetting what could have been and then one day after many years of work and family life, fate brings back a chance for the heart to open up a space for love again. This is the story of a married retiree named Cory brought to life by Ms. Nova Villa and her love interest when she was still single, Third portrayed by Mr. Freddie Webb in 1st Ko si 3rd, an official entry to the 2014 Cinemalaya Film Festival.

"I would like to tell a story about an interrupted love," says Real Florido the film's writer and director. "Then play with the idea of giving it a chance when the characters are in the senior years." The film's excitement and complication come from the fact that Cory and Third are in their 60's and are married to different partners. "This film also shows how a retiree would spend her 'free' days and look forward to the future after ending her decades of labor in the city treasury office," Florido added.

Bringing Back an Old Spark

Villa and Webb have been known in the 1990's as well-watched comedic couple. Their chemistry doing funny skits on television have had a good following from numerous households. At this day and age of multifaceted showbiz coupling, 1st Ko si 3rd is bringing back to the silver screen the wholesome tandem. This time providing both young and mature audiences with unadulterated family entertainment that gives an insight about life and love.

Igniting a Dream

Real Florido has been writing for one of the most competitive and prevailing television networks in the country where he has made and led content for several entertainment shows. His background in video production started in college. He also did several collaborations on independent film making before he had an entry approved to the 2014 Cinemalaya Film Festival with 1st Ko si 3rd.

"I want to advocate delivering content to audiences that that will make them think and realize some aspects of everyday living that are sometimes overlooked," Florido states. "My entry to this year's festival intends to do that and I look forward to being able to create more projects with compelling messages in the future," he concludes.


2014 Cinemalaya Film Festival will be at the Cultural Center of the Philippines on August 1 to 10, 2014.

Team Gonzaga, the First Reality Show on ABS-CBN Mobile

ABS-CBN Mobile never fails its fast growing patrons by putting up the first ever reality show on mobile featuring celebrity sisters Toni and Alex Gonzaga entitled “Team Gonzaga” which will begin on Saturday, July 19, 12 noon.

After the successful shows such as Experience Daniel, Experience Kathryn, Experience KathNiel and PBB All in, Team Gonzaga will feature Toni and Alex, their lives behind the cameras as they share about their personal lives, family and their relationship as siblings.
Toni shares that they have no rules on their selves and what you will see in this show is who they really are, what they are like behind the camera. It is not acting as we are already actresses and it is really hard to be acting 24/7.
What sets apart Team Gonzaga from other reality shows is that it started not out of intrigue or conflict. It’s just two celebrity sisters, how they are behind the camera. I think we will be more entertained and get to know them better.

Team Gonzaga will be exclusive for ABS-CBN Mobile subscribers and can be seen every Saturday at 12 noon. For more updates log on to or visit its official social media accounts at and
