Two Pinoy Indiefilm Makers in France

Omigod. One of my former students won first prize in the Festival International du Film in Marseille. I feel so old. Haha. I almost failed this kid. But while he wasn't good with words, apparently he's good with telling stories in images. Bravo.
Works of Filipino filmmakers Sherad Anthony Sanchez and Raya Martin have now been recognized in Europe.

Huling Balyan ng Buhi (international title: The Woven Stories of the Other) bagged the Prix Premiere or The First Film Prize Award in the First Film and Sound Competition at the recent 18th FID (Festival International du Film) or the Marseille Documentary Film Festival in France.

This indie film, which was named Best Picture in the 2006 Cinema One Originals Film Festival, tells the story of a priestess' conception of stigmata.
