EKSTRA (A Bit Player) is a drama-comedy film which follows a seemingly usual day in the life of Loida Malabanan, as she embarks on yet another taping day of a soap opera, as a bit player. As the shoot progresses, we get a glimpse of the truth in the ruling system of the production, as well as the exploitation on the marginalized laborers like her..


In an interview ocnducted by ABSCBN News, she shared. “Imagine, sa tagal-tagal ko sa pelikula, lagi akong bida. Ngayon naman gagampanan ko ‘yung role ng isang extra na alam naman nating lahat na ang isang pelikula, hindi mabubuo nang walang extra, so ako ngayon ang hahanga sa mga artista,”


Cinemalaya 2013 will kick off its 10-day run on July 26 in cinemas at the Cultural Center of the Philippines in Pasay City, Greenbelt 3 in Makati City, and Trinoma in Quezon City.
