VIVA Films’ latest offering, the film bio “Felix Manalo” stands to make a new chapter in the history of Philippine Cinema as it aims to break the 2 world best attempts in theGuinness World Record feat for the largest audience attendance in a film premiere and screening on October 4.

The premiere showing will be held at the 55,000-seater Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan, three days before its opening date on October 7 in cinemas nationwide.

The country’s biggest stars and other prominent celebrities, led by versatile actor Dennis Trillo, are expected to grace the momentous event.

In the movie, Dennis plays the lead role of Ka Felix Manalo, Iglesiani Cristo’s first Executive Minister, while the beauteous actress Bela Padilla plays the role of his wife, KaHonorata.

Dennis and Bela are supported by over a hundred big stars, like Gabby Concepcion, Gladys Reyes, Jacklyn Jose, Snooky Serna, Lorna Tolentino, Richard Yap, Dale Baldilloand more.

In line with the film premiere, the Philippine Arena will be transformed into a theatre with 22 meters by 40 meters screenmounted for a full movie house experience.

“Felix Manalo” was skilfully directed by the multi-award-winning director, Joel C. Lamangan.

It was shot for 58 days over a period of eight months with only the best and well-respected names in the local film production scene doing tedious work to ensure world-class quality.

Direk Joel’s team includes director of photography RodyLacap, production designer Edgar Littaua, set design and constructionDanny Red,costume designer Joel Marcelo Bilbao, hair and make-up JuvanBermil, musical director Von de Guzman, sound engineer Albert Michael Idioma, film editor John Wong, visual effects supervisor Adrian Arcega, assistant director Arman Reyesand associate director Julius Alfonso.

“Felix Manalo” is monumental as it traces the origins and growth of the INC since 1914. It painstakingly covers and replicates events and locations as early as 1886 when Ka Felix was born until his demise in 1963.

Audiences will surely marvel at the elaborate production sets and costumes that cut across Philippine history as it relays Ka Felix’s trials and tribulations as an ordinary human being, a dutiful husband, a doting father, and a dynamic leader.
