Mae Czarina Cruz-Alviar

After working as a junior production assistant for the iconic film Magic Temple (1995), she never stopped learning and training in the art of filmmaking. After training under fellow FilmmakeHER Rory Quintos for a television show, she emerged as a director in 2002 for an episode of the weekly show, Maalaala Mo Kaya. Now she has made her mark with romantic films such as She’s The One (2013) and Crazy Beautiful You (2014).

Synopsis
In the academe, Nicolas “Nico” Veneracion Borromeo is a highly esteemed History of Architecture professor who is on his way to becoming the next Vice Dean of the Department. He knows that achieving this would finally make his mother proud of him and forgive him for indirectly causing his father’s death. And yet, when he meets an unconventional girl named Sandra “Sasa” Sanchez, his world turns upside down. He never thought that he could fall in love with someone who works as a promo-girl and is obviously unacceptable in his life.
