From Cinemalaya to Netflix: 'Third is My First' to stream on Oct. 15


Firestarters’ maiden film "1st Ko si 3rd" (Third Is My First) will stream on Netflix starting October 15, 2020. 

Directed by Real Florido, the movie revolves around a 65-year old woman (Nova Villa) who is looking forward to settling into a long retirement with her husband (Dante Rivero). But when an old flame (Freddie Webb) suddenly turns up, she comes to reassess her past. 

Unlike the usual romantic comedies, "Third Is My First"has a lot more to offer with its different take on love and romance. It is a rom-com that not only won the hearts of the audience but also took home accolades and nods from international film festivals-- Hawaii International Film Festival, London Film Festival, Canada International Film Festival and Jersey City TV & Film Festival. Nova Villa got her first ever Gawad Urian nomination from this film while Dante Rivero won Best Actor in Cinemalaya 2014. 

Ken Chan, one of today’s hottest and brightest Primetime TV actors shines in this film as Third, the young and charming Reserved Military Officer whom Cory (Nova Villa’s character) fell in love ages ago. Singer RJ Agustin, known for his single “Sana Hindi Na Lang Kita Minahal”, portrays the role of Cory’s grandson who taught her how to use social media to reconnect with friends, even with an old flame. Also starring in the movie are Lara Morena, Coleen Perez and Denise Barbacena.
