Awarded films

The Story of Southern Islet


The jury appreciated the film “for its creative portrayal of spirituality in an increasingly ungodly world. Its photography depicts an ethereal dichotomy regardless of one’s faith in the supernatural, accompanying the protagonist’s quest for her husband’s wellbeing. Her subtle character evolution is an inspiration for ethnic and religious conciliation and an embracement of cultural richness.”
