Relive His Legacy: 'A Mark Gil Retrospective'

One great actor that will surely be miss by millions is Mark Gil. The actor's passing may be sad but his legacy will keep him immortal. Best known from his films like 'Batch 81', 'Kid Huwag Kang Susuko', 'Bilibid Boys', Miss X', 'Palipat-lipat Papalit-palit' and 'Magnifico' Mark Gil truly is one of the best actor this industry ever had.

Mark Gil's Children:

And to keep his legacy as immortal as he is, Mark Gil's family will have a festival of his memorable movies. Led by Mark's sister Cherie Gil's My Own Mann Productions along with Ayala Mall Cinemas and The Film Development Council of the Philippines comes a 'Mark Gil Retrospective'. You can watch Mark's notable acting prowess and unforgetable films via this festival. I attended the gala premiere of this and watched 'Batch 81' along with the Eigenmanns and select family friends and media people. Invited celebrities also graced the event like Alessandra de Rossi, Epi Quizon, Andi Eigenmann's rumored sutor Brett Jackson and Ms. Eugene Domingo. 

I was amazed how Mark portrayed the character Sid Lucero (yes, his son Sid Lucero's screen name was inspired from the film) his intense acting and cinematic presence awed me and you too can experience the chill for only P100, just check the screening schedules above. Mark Gil may be gone but his films will constantly remind us of his brilliance. What is your favorite Mark Gil movie?
