About Apag Movie:

  • Apag movie was partially financed by the Hong Kong International Film Festival Society, which stipulated that Mendoza produce a film that does not feature sex, violence, or politics – a usual element of Mendoza’s previous films.
  • The name of the film, Apag comes from the shorthand of “Hapag Kainan” or Dinner Table. The film is a homage to Mendoza’s Kapampangan roots, using a strictly Pampangueno cast, and was filmed in the Kapampangan language.
  • Apag was released internationally as Feast.
  • It premiered at the Busan International Film Festival in October 2022.
  • From 2022 to 2023 was showcased in various international film festivals such as the Warsaw Film Festival, World Film Festival of Bangkok, Vesoul International Film Festival, and the Asian Film Festival in South Korea.
  • Apag is screened in cinemas across the Philippines as one of the eight official entries of the 2023 Metro Manila Summer Film Festival which was theatrically released on April 8, 2023. The 2023 MMSFF release featured an ending different than the one screened in previous international film festivals.
