Established actors can submit through their agents, and non-represented talent can submit through the open call posted on the film’s Instagram account, or drop off their pictures and resumes at the Bontika booth at the Philippine Fashion & Cultural Expo at the Carson Event Center on Sunday, Oct. 16.

Award-winning Filipina filmmaker Giovannie Espiritu, who was commissioned by Bontika Entertainment to pen the script, will direct the film.

“My grandparents, who raised me, fell in love later in life, and I think that in a youth-centric world, there needs to be more stories of finding love at any age,” says Espiritu. “It’ll also showcase the beauty of the Philippines to a wider audience.”

In addition to the search for the leads, the filmmakers will also be rounding out the cast of family members and friends of the family. Filipina icon Giselle Tongi (Gimik, Kababayan Today) and Spanish actress Natalia Bilbao (Shein MEX & Latin America host, They Crawl Beneath) are attached as part of Alessa’s inner circle of friends.
