ALIENS ATA

Director: Glenn Barit

As two brothers try to understand and cope up with loss and separation, they look at the sky for answers. Could it be aliens? This is a film shot entirely with a drone.

ANG MAANGAS, ANG MARIKIT, AT ANG MAKATA

Director: Jose Ibarra Guballa

20 minutes

Set in the post-Spanish period, this short tells the tale of Liwliw (Martha Comia), the energetic and lovely wannabe dancer, and the men in her life. The poet Delfin (Lao Rodriguez), her suitor. The drunkard Kapitan (Archie Adamos), her father. And the gunman Alfonso (Alvin Anson), a stranger collecting a debt owed to him. Problems arise, tension builds up and a revelation awaits as the three meet up at the house where Liwliw practices her dance.

GET CERTIFIED

Director: Isaias Herrera Zantua

10 minutes

Get Certified is a hilarious take on what it would be like to enter Hell and be chosen as a demon. Angelica (Chai Fonacier), is in a waiting room in some sort of purgatory with other “aspirants”, preparing for her interview by none other than the devil himself to Get Certified as a demon. She’s sure of it and is trying her best to become one until something itched her.

SAAN NAGTATAGO SI HAPPINESS?

Director: Florida Bautista

1 hour 15 minutes

Finding happiness isn't part of Tikyo's everyday plan. For him, at the age of 50, nothing is as simple as selling sorbetes, his only source of living. Everything's just perfectly fine. Until, breaking news comes-his mother, whom he believed, for so long, was already in heaven, is still alive. Dogged and eager, Tikyo will do everything to reconcile with the woman he loves the most-from the long queue in the TV studio to the chaotic newsroom of a radio station to the lunatic and hysterical fortune teller. Every effort, he does with the help of his best bud, Nene, the problem child of the tenement. His world will be lost in confusion when the girl of his dreams comes, Sara, fresh and charming. The 50-year old guy is now torn between finding his mom and pursuing the young woman's heart. Tikyo believes that true happiness will come to him if he'll be successful in winning the two women. Tikyo must find his way to happiness, lead other people to it or redefine its true meaning.
