Sep 27, 2019

MANILA --( ASIA TODAY )-- “Hello, Love, Goodbye,” the romantic drama movie that holds the record of being the highest-grossing Filipino film, is heading to Cannes, France for the 2019 MIPCOM, as ABS-CBN aims to showcase the movie among producers and film industry practitioners all over the world.

The Filipino blockbuster, which earned a worldwide gross of P880.60 million, or roughly around $16 million, follows the story of two young overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in Hong Kong who find comfort in each other, while trying to hurdle personal challenges in the bustling metropolitan.

Critics have lauded the movie for being relatable and for putting the spotlight on the plight of OFWs. The performances of the film’s cast, particularly its main stars, Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards, also garnered glowing reviews.

Also in ABS-CBN’s showcase lineup are three of the network’s most watched TV series. These include “The Killer Bride,” which is a revenge-drama that deals with themes of love and justice; “Mea Culpa,” a mystery-drama about six friends involved in a tragic crime; and “The Heiress,” the TV series that spawned a thousand memes on social media that follows two powerful women and their children who fight to become the rightful heir to the throne of a business empire.

MIPCOM is an annual trade event in France, where content producers, buyers, financiers, and distributors in the fields of entertainment and advertising, from all over the world, can connect, make deals, and learn future trends in the industry.
