April 16, 2012 12:00pm

The Philippine subtle horror-drama film "The Road" was shown at the 30th Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF) in Belgium.
Directed by William "Yam" Laranas, the film was screened on April 9, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said in a news release over the weekend.

The festival opened for public viewing on April 5 and will run until April 17 at Tour and Taxis in Avenue du Port in Brussels.

The BIFFF is a prestigious award-giving institution focusing on horror, cult, thriller, and fantasy films.
"Laranas received a warm round of applause and response from the audience after his brief remarks about his film prior to the start of its showing. This was followed by a brief Q & A session with the BIFFF Press Corps and a short signing session," the DFA said.
The DFA said Laranas submitted his film for an international premiere at the festival. The results of the competition will be announced during the closing ceremonies on April 17.
In 2006, he won BIFFF's 7th Orbit Award for his ghost movie "Sigaw," which helped get him to the United States to shoot a remake of his film "The Echo," for BIFFF 2009. - VVP, GMA News
