Waiting to Whisper (Ang Paghihintay sa Bulong) by Sigrid Andrea P. Bernardo
In traditional Filipino culture, when a person dies you can whisper and send your wishes to the dead. This bizarre yet touching film depicts a grotesquely dysfunctional family who selfishly await the death of a relative. (2012, 17 min)

Aurora, My Aurora by Janus Victoria
A poetic meditation on random human connections set against the discordant urban rhythms of Manila. (2012, 15 min)

Vow of Silence (Imik) by Anna Isabelle Matutina
Starring the gifted young actress Mercedes Cabral, Imik examines the complexities of sexual relationships in an extremely patriarchal society. (2012, 40 min)

Last Strike (Katapusang Labok) by Aiess Alonso
With stunning imagery bathed in glorious light, the film portrays a fishing community north of Cebu who struggle to survive despite the devastation caused by coral harvesting. (2012, 20 min)
