Arvin “Kadiboy” Belarmino was born in Masbate in August 1987 and spent most of his years growing up in Quiapo, Manila. He took up Bachelor of Science in Information Technology in De La Salle University Dasmariñas Cavite. As young as 8 years old, he discovered his love for movies when his father first took him to the video stores. Kadiboy started writing in 2004 and has written several screenplays since then.
He may not have taken a degree in filmmaking but his passion for films remains steadfast, which inspired him to establish the group Halikon in 2006 as his way of encouraging his fellow filmmakers to pursue their passion. Kadiboy is influenced by the works of Lino Brocka, Peque Gallaga, Harmony Korine and Lars von Trier. His forte is writing dark comedy and satire because he’s the kind of writer who enjoys capturing and manipulating the viewers’ emotions. He’s working on a few screenplays, which he plans to bring to the screens in the coming years.
