The full-length documentary "Little Azkals: Pursuit of a World Cup Dream" will have a free screening on Sunday, March 1, 12 noon during the Great British Festival held at the Bonifacio Global City. The screening of this docu by filmmaker Babyruth Villarama will be at the open-air cinema at Bonifacio High Street.

"Little Azkals" tells the story of 22 boys who were selected by Philippine Football Federation (PFF) from over 1,000 aspirants to be part of the Little Azkals Under 11 team and how they were sent to the United Kingdom for a month-long training at Loughborough University. For many of the boys, it was their first time to be away to travel abroad and be away from their families. They had to endure homesickness, the rigid training, cold weather and the challenge of competing with more seasoned players.

Reviewer Oggs Cruz described the film as "an inspring tale of children dreaming big."

Seats at the "Little Azkals" screening in BGC is on a first come, first served basis.
