Production Wraps on "PACO" Harold Greenberg Funded Film
Boldly eagerly anticipates the release of "PACO" a short film by Filipino-Canadian director Kent Donguines and writer Moira Tan. The film is set in the cold backdrop of Vancouver's wet winter, where recent immigrant Paco attempts to maintain his ruse of being a successful engineer for his family back in Manila.

The film is primarily in Tagalog, and produced in collaboration with BOLDLY Originals and Aimer Films.
It features the talents of Edward Escobal in the title role, along with Jason Asuncion, Chrysthelle Rue and Sheree Ann Morgan. Director Kent Donguines' personal journey greatly influenced the plot of the film; and has acted as a healing moment for him as well as a creative outlet. The producers at Boldly wish to thank all the cast and crew for their efforts on bringing this project to life; and are excited to share a first glimpse in the coming weeks.
The film was completed with the financial assistance of Harold Greenberg Fund, Creative BC, NFB, CFC, and Boldly.
Paco is expected to complete post production in March 2022, and begin a festival circuit before making its online debut.
