Hello, sir, I 'Gandhi' was also shown at the Manila Film Center during the 1st MIFF in 1982. I remember the event which was attended by Ben Kingsley himself.

I also remember screenings of "Evil Under the Sun" an Agatha Christie adaptation, starring Peter Ustinov. I didn't get to see it but they were showing ads on TV and the screening skeds.

Good day! Great to have found this site.. Cannot quite remember the competing films in the 1981 MIFF, although it brings to my mind a number of films in exhibition during the entire festival among them, THE CLINIC and our very own ORO, PLATA, MATA, if I am not mistaken.. Also, the lone Japanese film IN THE REALM OF THE SENSES which some, seriously or not, said was an "erotic trash", lol! Surprisingly, the said film had actual penetration scene, so they say.. I wasnt able to watch the last-day screening of it at the Folk Arts Theater.. It was a queue, really! I even saw celebrities getting in line like spouses Michael de Mesa and Gina Alajar.. there.. just sharing..
