AWARDS: Southeast Asian Project Pitch 2022


The Boy and The Fight of Spiders (Diwalwal)
Director: Jarell Serencio
Producers: John Torres and Alex Poblete (The Philippines)
Like a director's love letter to his brother, then applied to a family relationship story to reflect on a happy life and childhood activities, then it becomes a story of a struggle that digs deep into the character's mind through space and social conditions. Jarell Serencio uses landscape and the art of cinematic storytelling to deeply explore the emotions and struggles of the characters, ultimately illuminating a beautiful, sad and tragic relationship.

Runner-Up Prize

Saddest Princess on Planet No.4 (เจ้าหงิญ)
Director: Aim-Ei Polpitak (เอมอัยย์ พลพิทักษ์)
Producer: Tamonwan Ratanapongumpai (ธมนวรรณ รัตนพงศ์อำไพ) (Thailand)
Combining in a fairytale a fictitious and technicolor world with real details and using the technique of theater art stage designing and traditional aesthetic, Aim Ei Polpitak tells us the story of a princess with divorced parents. Using this experimental approach, she speaks about loss and grief in an original way.

Special Mention

Rookie / Director: Samantha Lee
Producer: Dan Villegas (The Philippines)
This engaging story about bonding and self-growth is also a fresh take on the sports genre. With a uniquely queer perspective, Samantha Lee’s Rookie offers a timely and much-needed narrative that celebrates individuality, friendship, and female empowerment.
