It is common knowledge that Vic Sotto and his Dabarkads have been consistent blockbusters at the tills during Christmas season. Sotto, whose film Enteng Kabisote and The Abangers was reportedly ‘booted out’ along with big production outfits like Regal Films and Star Cinema by the new MMFF juries to give way to ‘indie’ films. But as they say, you can’t put a good man down. Sotto’s Enteng Kabisote and The Abangers will be shown a little earlier than what had been the usual tradition during the holiday season. For a change, Enteng Kabisote and The Abangers will be shown starting November 30, 2016.

“Although I admit, we were somewhat disappointed that we won’t have an entry (film entry) for the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) this year, I’d like to think it was a blessing in disguise,” says veteran comedian, movie producer and TV host, Vic Sotto when asked about his film which failed to make the cut among this year’s movie entries during the bloggers conference held recently at Anabel’s Restaurant in Tomas Morato hosted by OctoArts Films.
