Also on display are vintage photographs taken between 1900 and 1920 of the Southern Philippines and Cordillera exhibited by Red Lab Gallery.

There is also something for film geeks with free night film screenings of critically acclaimed Filipino movies Sonata, directed by Regina Cadena; Pauwi Na, directed by Paolo Villaluna, and Zig Dulay’s Paglipay. The screenings are hosted by the Film Development Council of the Philippines.

For Dance & Music, Step by Step Performing Arts Studio, Bughaw Folkloric, and Sindaw Philippines Performing Arts Guild are scheduled to have performances during the Ortigas Art Festival.
